Rotator cuff calcific tendinitis is a common shoulder disorder that usually subsides spontaneously. Some patients, however, do not show any improvement in the pain after conservative treatment for an extended period of time. The aim of this report was to demonstrate the improvement in a patient with calcific tendinitis of infraspinatus following treatment with platelet-rich plasma (PRP). Although the efficacy of PRP therapy in this condition is uncertain, it can be an effective treatment option in refractory cases.

Keywords: Platelet-rich plasma, injections; tendinopathy; rotator cuff; case reports.

Rotator cuff kalsifik tendiniti çoğunlukla kendiliğinden geçen yaygın bir omuz rahatsızlığıdır. Ancak bazı hastalarda uzun süreli konservatif tedaviye rağmen ağrıda herhangi bir düzelme görülmez. Bizim bu makaledeki amacımız, infraspinatus kalsifik tendiniti olan bir hastada plateletten zengin plazma (PRP) tedavisi sonrası iyileşmeyi göstermek. PRP tedavisinin bu rahatsızlıktaki etkinliği kesin olmasa da, dirençli vakalarda etkin bir tedavi seçeneği olabilir.

Anahtar Kelimeler: Plateletten zengin plazma, enjeksiyonlar; tendinopati; rotator manşet; olgu sunumları.
