Platelet Rich Plasma for Cardiac Surgery

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) for Cardiac Surgery (Cardiothoracic)

How PRP works:

A clinical specialist member of the blood conservation team will draw a small amount of your own blood. They will spin the whole blood in a specialized centrifuge that will concentrate and separate the platelets and white blood cells.  Platelets are known to have growth factors, and white blood cells are known to fight infection. These natural biologic healing agents constitute Platelet-Rich Plasma, which is then applied at the affected site. The PRP will then trigger the body’s natural healing processes.
