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 1678-4162.

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.

Keywords : dog; cranial cruciate ligament; platelet rich plasma.
