A new study published in the journal Cartilage showed that PRP
(platelet-rich plasma) injections are significantly more effective than
cortisone injections for treating symptomatic arthritis of the thumb. 33
patients were randomized to receive either 2 cortisone injections or 2 PRP
injections, spaced 2 weeks apart. They were evaluated at 3 and 12 months after
the 2nd injection. After 12 months’ follow-up, the PRP treatment group showed
significantly better results in comparison with the corticosteroids.
