Give someone a blood clot to treat their knee pain???

Block an artery to decrease knee arthritis pain?? I am just not convinced that a patient with knee arthritis should be advised to have their geniculate artery clotted (embolized) in an interventional radiology suite…with an expected 6 months of partial pain relief. This write up discusses a very small pilot study with no statistical significance….but my question is whether we should even be pursuing this idea when we have an alternative that is autologous, safe, and can be done at a lower cost in the doctor’s office, and lasts 9-12 months…….PRP!
