Effect of Platelet Concentration in Platelet-Rich Plasma on Peri-Implant Bone Regeneration

Effect of Platelet Concentration in Platelet-Rich Plasma on Peri-Implant Bone Regeneration

This study analyzed the effect of the platelet count in platelet-rich plasma (PRP) on bone regeneration in vivo. Twenty male New Zealand white rabbits were used. PRP was produced using the Platelet Concentrate Collection System (PCCS) (3i, Miami, FL, USA). After inducing ketamine-xylazine anaesthesia, a self-tapping titanium screw (Branemark MK III TiUnite, 3.75 x 7…

Utilizing Autologous Growth Factors for Dental Surgery to Enhance Bone and Soft Tissue Grafts

Utilizing Autologous Growth Factors for Dental Surgery to Enhance Bone and Soft Tissue Grafts

Abstract: The addition to a graft site of an easily obtained autologous concentrate of blood platelets, called platelet rich plasma (PRP), offers an improved quality and speed of healing for both hard and soft tissue. This article will outline the sequence of bone regeneration, the role of PRP in bone regeneration, the methods to acquire…

Histological Evaluation of Sinus Augmentation Using Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)

Histological Evaluation of Sinus Augmentation Using Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)

Abstract:The use of Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) in conjunction with autogenous bone graft materials has recently been advocated for use in sinus augmentation surgery as a means of enhancing both quantity and quality of newly forming bone. The use of PRP is based on the premise that autogenous plasma, rich in platelets, contributes large quantities…

Platelet-Rich Plasma Gel Promotes Differentiation and Regeneration During Equine Wound Healing

Platelet-Rich Plasma Gel Promotes Differentiation and Regeneration During Equine Wound Healing

Nonhealing wounds of the lower equine limb represent a challenging model. The platelet is a natural source of a myriad of growth factors and cytokines that promote wound healing. This study evaluates the potential of platelet derived factors to enhance wound healing in the lower equine limb. Platelets were isolated from horse blood and activated…

Autologous Concentrated Platelet-Rich Plasma (cPRP) for Local Application in Bone Regeneration

Autologous Concentrated Platelet-Rich Plasma (cPRP) for Local Application in Bone Regeneration

Platelets are rich in growth factors that may contribute to an accelerated tissue regeneration process. The therapeutic osteogenic effect of local platelet administration probably depends on the amount of growth factors delivered within. To improve platelet-derived factor preparations, the platelets have to be concentrated without loss of the granular growth factor load. An autologous procedure…

ADA: Autologous Platelet Gel Effectively Treats Diabetic Plantar Wounds

ADA: Autologous Platelet Gel Effectively Treats Diabetic Plantar Wounds

Use of the autologous platelet gel, AuTolo-Gel, to treat non-healing diabetic plantar surface wounds provides good volume reduction and wound healing, researchers said here yesterday at the 61st Scientific Sessions of the American Diabetes Association. Carelyn P. Fylling, MSN, with Fylling Associates in Walker, Minnesota, presented the results of a chart review conducted at six…

Procurement of Autologous Platelet Rich Gel

Procurement of Autologous Platelet Rich Gel

ABSTRACT Platelet rich gel can be used as an adjunct to homeostatic measures to control bleeding and aid in wound healing. The “Direct Draw,” intra-operative method of platelet sequestration can produce an autologous platelet rich gel that can eliminate disease associated with multiple donors. It is cost effective, easy to make and can be a…
