Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) treatments, a relatively new practice, are used for a variety of medical and clinical treatments. More recently, an increasing number of case studies and research has focused on the efficacy and use of PRP to treat injuries, and potential cosmetic benefits. This article is a compilation of numerous case studies regarding diverse uses of PRP in order to better understand the uses as well as efficacy of the treatment. The applications include: atrophic acne scarring3, orthopedic care2, Hepple stage V osteochondral lesion of the talus5, chronic non-healing ulcers6, plantar fasciitis7, skeletal muscle cell migration10, cyclophosphamide-induced hemorrhagic cystitis19, and degenerative change of rotator cuff muscles21.
