Platelet rich plasma (PRP) is a treatment modality that is very popular in recent years. It is obtained by centrifuging autologous blood. Although it has been used for tendon lesions, it could also used for many other lesions. Vascularization of tendons is relatively insufficient and therefore the treatment is difficult. They tend to be chronic. Although there are other treatments methods, the results are not always satisfactory. There are no known side effects of PRP. However, the effectiveness is highly controversial. Some studies indicated that PRP is very effective, but some say that PRP is ineffective. In this review we try to analyze the effectiveness and usability of PRP. [Archives Medical Review Journal 2012; 21(4.000): 236-245]
