Core Tip Studies comparing the efficacy of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and hyaluronic acid in treatment of knee osteoarthritis are insufficient. In this randomized controlled trial study, we compared the outcomes of PRP versus hyaluronic acid injections in three groups of patients with bilateral knee osteoarthritis. It was observed that PRP is significantly more efficient than hyaluronic acid. We also found that the efficacy of PRP increases after multiple injections. PRP was a safe treatment in our study and no major adverse effects were found.
