PRP + Viscosupplementation Research

Ultrasound guided injection of platelet rich plasma and hyaluronic acid, seperately and in combination for hip osteoarthritic

Results indicated that an intra-articular injection of the hip with PRP offered a significant clinical improvement in pain for patients with hip OA. The use of a combined PRP and HA injection did not provide a better long term outcome.

Efficacy of platelet-rich plasma in the treatment of knee osteoarthritis: a meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials

At 6 months post injection, PRP and hyaluronic acid (HA) had similar effects with respect to pain relief and functional improvement. At 12 months post injection, however, PRP was associated with significantly better pain relief and functional improvement. 

Randomized controlled trial comparing hyaluronic acid, platelet-rich plasma and the combination of both in the treatment of mild and moderate osteoarthritis of the knee

Combining HA and PRP resulted to significantly less pain and less functional limitation compared to HA alone up to 1 year after treatment. HA + PRP combination also resulted in significantly more physical function early in the treatment (1 month and 3 months) as compared to PRP alone.
