    Title: Efficacy of Platelet-Rich Plasma and Hyaluronic Acid Injections for Knee Preservation: A Comprehensive Review and Meta-Analysis Abstract: This research study aims to evaluate the efficacy and potential benefits of Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) and Hyaluronic Acid (HA) injections for knee preservation in patients with degenerative knee conditions. A systematic review and meta-analysis were conducted to analyze existing literature and clinical studies related to the topic. The findings from this study contribute to the understanding of the therapeutic effects, safety, and long-term outcomes of PRP and HA injections in knee preservation, guiding healthcare professionals in clinical decision-making and patient management. Introduction: Introduce the significance of knee preservation and the increasing use of PRP and HA injections as non-surgical treatment options. Provide an overview of knee degenerative conditions and the potential role of these injections in preserving joint health. Methodology: Describe the methodology used in this research, including the systematic review process, search strategy, and inclusion/exclusion criteria for selecting relevant studies. Discuss the statistical analysis methods employed for the meta-analysis. Efficacy of PRP and HA Injections for Knee Preservation: Present the findings from clinical studies investigating the efficacy of PRP and HA injections in knee preservation. Evaluate the therapeutic effects of PRP and HA injections on pain reduction, improvement in joint function, and quality of life in patients with knee degenerative conditions. Discuss the mechanisms of action of PRP and HA injections in promoting tissue healing, reducing inflammation, and enhancing joint lubrication. Address the potential differences in efficacy between PRP and HA injections, considering factors such as disease severity, patient characteristics, and injection technique. Analyze the duration of effect and the need for repeated injections over time for sustained knee preservation benefits. Safety and Adverse Events: Assess the safety profile of PRP and HA injections, including the incidence of adverse events, such as infection, allergic reactions, and local site reactions. Discuss patient selection criteria, contraindications, and precautions for the use of PRP and HA injections in knee preservation.
