After 6 months of PRP, there was a significant improvement in the duration of inactivity stiffness (8.3 ± 2.4 min), VAS score (3.9 ± 1.1) and IKDC score (74.3 ± 10.2) compared to baseline values (18.7 ± 6.5 min, 5.9 ± 1.3 and 40.9 ± 10.4 respectively; p < 0.001). A significant improvement in Doppler activity (p = 0.04) and synovial thickening (p < 0.001) was found after 6 months of PRP. A significant correlation was found between age of patients, body mass index and disease duration with the VAS (r = 0.55, p < 0.001 and r = 0.29, p = 0.03 and r = 0.71, p < 0.001) and a negative correlation with the IKDC score (r = −0.32, p = 0.03, r = −0.96, p < 0.001 and r = −0.79, p < 0.001 respectively).
Intra-articular injection of PRP is an effective and safe method for treatment of knee OA. Maximal improvement is obtained in patients with young age and short disease duration.
