Platelet Rich & Platelet Poor Plasma (PRP & PPP)

Platelets, or thrombocytes, play a fundamental role in hemostasis and are a natural source of growth factors.  These growth factors have been shown to play a significant role in repair and regeneration of several types of tissue.   The concentration and application of platelets and other naturally occurring biological blood components have a wide range of benefits including surgical procedures, chronic ulcers, burn patients, and other soft tissue ailments.

Concentration from whole blood produces two beneficial biological components – Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and Platelet Poor Plasma (PPP).  These concentrates have been shown to provide many clinical benefits including:

  • Minimized risk of contamination (autologous)
  • Quicker and more effective soft tissue wound healing
  • Reduction of post-surgical inflammation and hematoma formation
  • Reduction in post-surgical pain
  • Surgical hemostasis / tissue sealing
  • Reduction of post-operative infection
  • Quicker post-surgical bone healing

Platelet concentration therapy can benefit a broad array of procedures including:
