ESWT Increases Growth Factor Release from Equine PRP In Vitro

In vitro study: ESWT treatment of platelets causes increased release of growth factors

College of Veterinary Medicine, University of Georgia

Abstract – Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT) are both used for the treatment of soft tissue injuries in horses.  Clinically, the question has been raised whether these two therapies could be used in combination.  The hypothesis of this study was the application of ESWT to PRP would increase the release of platelet derived growth factors (PDGF) and transforming growth factors beta 1 (TGFBeta) from platelets.
