Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is obtained from the patient’s own blood; it contains growth factors and other biomolecules that are involved in the healing of injuries and wounds and make it possible to regenerate natural tissues. And safe methods for the treatment of sports injuries (muscles, tendons, ligaments), tendinopathy, entrapment diseases and articular cartilage (including trauma and osteoarthritis-osteoarthritis).
Theoretical basis of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy
Platelet-rich plasma contains a variety of growth factors and proteins that stimulate and support the regeneration process. The high biological activity of molecules in platelet-rich plasma is critical to the success of PRP in the treatment of the musculoskeletal system.
Since the replacement of damaged cells with a new and limited blood supply is slow compared to other tissues, this area takes a long time. PRP therapy provides components that promote the formation of new blood vessels, that is, the formation of new blood vessels.
The treated areas lead to better oxygenation and nutrition of the tissues, thereby accelerating the metabolism of these areas, thereby improving the regeneration capacity of the tissues, because the rich plasma in the platelets also contains Eliminate death or death-damaged elements. Thanks to PRP therapy, in addition to stimulation, the regeneration area is also freed from the residue of the disease. Hijacking process.
The course of PRP therapy
The procedure starts with a medical interview, then blood is drawn from the patient with prp tubes and growth factors are used to prepare platelet-rich plasma. The plasma preparation process is shown in the figure. This takes a few minutes to a few minutes. Once prepared, the plasma is ready to use. The injection site is disinfected, and platelet-rich plasma is injected into selected areas of the body.
The injection is carried out under ultrasonic control, while the process is continuously monitored and monitored. After injection of platelet-rich plasma, the injection site is disinfected and covered with a sterile bandage. If you experience pain after the operation, you can take painkillers (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) prescribed by your doctor. It is necessary to control access. ... and follow the recommended rehabilitation procedures. The following is a method of using growth factors to produce PRP platelet-rich plasma.
Indications for the platelet-rich plasma therapy
Because platelet-rich plasma (PRP) (from the patient's own blood) contains growth factors, tissue regeneration has reached a new level. Growth factor therapy is a revolutionary method through which we can treat serious diseases more effectively than ever. :
-"inflammation" of the Achilles tendon (tendinopathy);
-elbow "tennis player";
-knee "jump shot";
-joint Cartilage injury
-chondromalacia-rotator cuff injury;
Advantages of PRP therapy
The main factors driving the widespread use of PRP therapy in regenerative medicine are the composition of platelet-rich plasma and the fact that patients receive their own biological materials, thereby eliminating the risk of negative immune reactions and infections.
Advantages of PRP therapy:-minimally invasive;-high efficiency, guaranteed by the biological activity of platelet-rich plasma components;-safety and accuracy of injection;-possibility of repeated treatment according to individual needs and indications;-due to application The surface is locally anesthetized and painless.
