PRP for UCL injuries at the Elbow

The ulnar collateral ligament of the elbow is a major stabilizer that can be injured either acutely or via chronic overuse. Throwers (Pitchers) are especially prone to this type of injuries.

PRP has been proposed as a treatment for strains and partial tears. To date, no one has published or presented their results. It is a treatment to consider but needs more data.
