Abstract [sv]

Djurförsök visar att autologa trombocyter kan påskynda läkning av skadade senor.

Anekdotiska data tyder på att tendinosliknande besvär kan lindras av autologa trombocyter.

Lokalbehandling med autologa trombocyter börjar bli populärt bland vissa idrottare.

Randomiserade studier av både senrupturer och tendinoser pågår.

Behandlingen är lätt att införa, men den är förmodligen svår att avskaffa om de randomiserade studierna skulle visa att den är värdelös. Det är alltså viktigt att vänta på resultaten.

Abstract [en]

Platelet concentrates have been implicated in bone and soft tissue repair for decades, but results from both preclinical and clinical studies have been meagre and conflicting. In a small animal model, a locally injected platelet concentrate accelerated the repair of injured Achilles tendons. This has raised a hope for clinical success in the treatment of tendon pathology. Treatment of tendinosis with platelet concentrates has been heavily marketed, and there is now an increasing public demand for this treatment. At a recent meeting in Linköping, Sweden, 2 ongoing randomised controlled studies were described, with some preliminary results. It was concluded that there is an increasing enthusiasm, but no useful clinical data.
