Platelet Rich Plasma - PRP
Since the early 1990’s, there have been several key components that are found in an individual's blood that play an important role in the natural healing process. Specifically, platelet derived growth factor (PDGF) and transforming growth factor beta (TGF-β), which are found in platelet alpha granules; fibronectin and vitronetin, which are cell adhesion molecules found in plasma; and fibrin itself.
Now, a growing body of scientific knowledge indicates that the use of concentrated growth factors can significantly accelerate bone and soft tissue regeneration, initiate the revascularization process known as angiogenesis, and amplify the anti-microbial effect of leukocytes at the site of injury. The expected end result is a significantly improved healing time, reduction in scarring, acceleration of bone formation with increased density, and a lower incidence of infection.
Today with high speed centrifuges and careful sequestration and fractionation of the patient's own blood, these key elements can be concentrated into what is termed platelet rich plasma. When mixed with small amounts of thrombin and calcium, platelet rich plasma forms Platelet Gel.
With almost 10 years of experience with platelet rich plasma (PRP) we have been involved with numerous specialties including:
- Sports medicine
- Regenerative Injection Therapy (RIT)
- Wound care
- Cardiac surgery
- General surgery
- Long term care facilities
