What's PRP ?

 

 

 

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) is a cutting-edge  biological and regenerative therapy for tissue regeneration and wound healing by using  autologous peripheral blood. The clinical  definition of PRP is a volume of autologous  plasma that has a platelet concentration  above baseline. When activated, platelets  release bioactive growth factors such as  PDGF, TGF-β, FGF, VEGF, EGF, and etc. in other words, it can also be defined as ‘ concentrated growth factors (CGF). ‘

 

 

 

 

Plasma

Plasma is composed of about 90% water, 9% organic matter, and 1% mineral. It makes up about 55% of total blood volume.

Platelets

Platelets release a multitude of growth factors that play a significant role in the repair and regeneration of connective tissues.

PRP

(Platelets Rich Plasma)

PRP (Platelets-rich-plasma) is blood plasma that has been enriched with platelets. In a word, PRP is a concentrated source of autologous platelets containing sample growth factors and other cytokines that stimulates healing of bone and soft tissue.
