SILVA, R.F.; CARMONA, J.U. and REZENDE, C.M.F.. The use of intra-articular platelet rich-plasma as a postsurgical treatment of cranial cruciate ligament rupture in a dog. Arq. Bras. Med. Vet. Zootec. [online]. 2012, vol.64, n.4, pp. 847-852. ISSN 0102-0935. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-09352012000400009.
We report the case of a dog that received intra-articular injections of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) during the postoperative period of surgical treatment of cranial cruciate ligament (CCL) rupture. Clinical, and gait analysis by the force plate in this patient might suggest the use of intra-articular injections of PRP as a post-surgical therapy in the treatment of CCL rupture.
