Abstract

Several trials have been carried out to improve the healing of rotator cuff tear, but their effects remain controversial. In this study, we examined the therapeutic effect of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) in combination with self-assembled peptide (SAP) on the healing of rotator cuff tear in the rat. Twenty-seven Sprague-Dawley rats, aged 15 weeks, were used for the rotator cuff tear model. The supraspinatus muscle at the insertion site was dissected and truncated, leaving the cut edge free. A week after the surgery, the rats were randomly divided into SAP, PRP, SAP-PRP and control groups and 0.2 ml SAP, PRP, SAP-PRP and saline were injected, respectively. Bonar scores and synovial inflammation grade were checked 5 weeks after the injection. Immunofluorescence staining for heat shock protein (HSP)-70 and caspase-3 was conducted. Furthermore, maximum stride length was measured before and at 2 and 4 weeks after the injection. The Bonar scores were 6.4±1.8 in the SAP group, 5.9±2.0 in the PRP group, 4.7±1.1 in the SAP-PRP group and 8.3±2.3 in the control group. There was significant difference between the SAP-PRP and control groups in post hoc multiple comparison analysis. Among four categories of Bonar scores, collagen arrangement and vascular infiltration showed improvement after SAP-PRP injection. Immunofluorescence images showed that HSP-70 and caspase-3 were much less expressed in the SAP-PRP group than in the other groups. In conclusion, SAP-PRP can be effective in healing a rotator cuff tear by enhancing the collagen arrangement and inhibiting inflammatory changes and apoptosis.
