Comparison between platelet-rich plasma injections and hyaluronic acid injections in the treatment of patellar tendinopathies: a randomized trial

Background. As patellar tendinopathies are frequently chronic there has been plenty of research carried out to develop effective treatments, among which platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and hyaluronic acid (HA). Hypothesis. Therefore we aimed to compare the effect after three months following injections of PRP compared with HA injections on patients with a proximal patellar tendinopathy. Methods. … Continued

Evolution of isokinetic strength and return to sport after proximal hamstring rupture without surgical repair: a retrospective series of cases

Introduction. Proximal ruptures of hamstrings are rare. Their evolution in absence of surgery is relatively unknown. We aimed to describe the evolution of patients with non-operated proximal hamstring ruptures, in terms of strength recovery, self-satisfaction and return to sport. Methods. We included retrospectively 16 patients addressed for isokinetic strength evaluation of the hamstrings after non-operated … Continued
