Abstract

Local aprotinin injections are used in the treatment of chronic tendinopathy. Severe allergic reactions, although uncommon, have been reported. We highlight two instances of systemic allergic reaction, and discuss the potential side effects of local aprotinin injections in the orthopaedic setting as well as the evidence base for its use.
