Autologous Blood Injection to Gluteal Tendons
You have been referred to have an autologous blood injection to your gluteal tendons. The commonest reasons for this are having tendinopathy or a partial tear in the gluteus medius tendon. Other gluteal tendons may also be affected.
The procedure involves taking some blood from a vein in your arm (similar to a blood test) and then injecting it directly into the abnormal part of the tendon, using an ultrasound scanner to ensure accurate placement.
