Guelfi et al recently presented a series of 16 cases of non-insertional achilles tendonitis at a recent meeting in Brazil. They used unactivated, buffered platelet rich plasma prepared using the Biomet Recover System, also known as the GPS. Significant improvement was found in all 16 of their patients via imaging. They also reported the patients returning to sports at six months with a high degree of satisfaction.
