Platelet Rich Plasma Tennis Elbow Study

Enrollment in the most comprehensive platelet rich plasma study to date was recently completed.  The study is a double blind randomized trial of 230 patients of PRP vs Saline for chronic tennis elbow.  It followed the protocol outlined in the first published study on the topic. 
(American Journal of Sports Medicine--Mishra and Pavelko, 2006)

It will take 8-10 months to finish the follow up and analyze the data but it is a milestone to have simply completed enrollment in this important investigation.  We can all look forward to the results.
