The application of biologics has grown in popularity in recent years with professional athletes to amateur recreational sports lovers trying different means of biologics to treat acute and chronic sports injuries with the hope that they can enhance and speed up recovery. Common biologics based on the principle of ‘Regeneration,” which have been used worldwide, such as platelet-rich plasma (PRP), different growth factors, or even mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs), usually applied in a minimal invasive approach, theoretically can enhance the potential to heal the damaged tissues faster and maybe even stronger. For some they offer an attractive, holistic approach to treatment over a more invasive approach, such as surgery. There is a “fashion” and a rapidly growing market in the world of sports medicine over the past decade for the use of biologics, and there are ever more attractive products launching in the markets for different types of sports injuries. In spite of its growing popularity, however, the scientific evidence of the efficacy of these biologics, and the possibilities of related complications, still cause controversies in its applications. In this webinar, experts from APKASS and ISAKOS will share updates on the evidence and experience in their practice on the use of biologics in Sports Medicine, particularly on common sports injuries such as Rotator Cuff tear, Achilles Tendinosis, ACL injuries, or even Osteoarthritis of the knee.
