Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) is a progressive non-surgical healing treatment in a variety of fields such as Orthopedics and Dentistry. In recent years, PRP is also used in Cardiology for different treatments.
PRP is a fraction of autologous plasma with supraphysiological concentration of platelets.
Platelets contain α granules, which comprise cytokines, growth factors and bioactive proteins essential for tissue repair and healing. Upon injury, platelets initiate blood coagulation and release growth factors that activate the healing response (PDGF/ TGF/ VEGF/ EGF etc.)
These bioactive proteins initiate soft and hard tissue healing; sternum repair, muscle injury regeneration and connective tissue healing.
