To create PRP(Platelet Rich Plasma ), a small sample of your blood is drawn (similar to a lab test sample) and placed in a centrifuge that spins the blood at high speeds, separating the platelets from the other components. Regenexx-SCP is manually processed by a lab technician, producing higher concentrations of platelets and a much more pure concentration of the beneficial blood components.
Approximately five times the number of platelets found in normal circulating blood. In addition, blood plasma contains the growth factors PDGF and VEGF and other bioactive proteins that aid in wound healing.
Human blood is comprised primarily of red blood cells (RBC), as well as white blood cells (WBC), platelets, and plasma. By initiating the first step of coagulation, platelets are the key to the body's ability to heal wounds.
It is thought that by increasing the platelet count in a wounded area, the body's healing to that area would be accelerated – explaining the use of PRP (platelet rich plasma) in wound healing.
In our clinic we apply free PRP during surgery one of the reason that we use PRP is provide us long term of grafts life during operation also after surgery healing process faster.
