PRP Therapy:

Plasma is liquid portion of blood. It is composed of water (large amount) and proteins. 

Platelets are the blood cells and also called as thrombocytes. Platelets are nucleated, discoid cellular elements. They are approximately 2 micrometer in diameter. Normal count of platelets in blood stream ranges from 150,000 to 400,000 platelets per μL. Platelets caused blood clotting and other necessary growth healing process.

What is meant by PRP therapy?

Platelet Rich Plasma also known as autologous conditioned plasma, Platelet rich Growth factors. 

Platelet Rich plasma (PRP) therapy also called as autologous conditioned plasma (ACP) therapy uses injections of a concentration of patient’s own platelets to enhance the healing of injured muscles, tendons, ligaments and joints. 

It uses ingredients from your own blood to treat the damaged area. 

Classification of PRP therapy:

Following are types of PRP therapy. 

  • Leukocytes poor Platelet Rich Plasma 
  • Leukocyte and Platelet Rich Plasma
  • Pure Platelet Rich Fibrin 
  • Leukocytes-and Platelet Rich Fibrin  

Leukocytes poor Platelet Rich Plasma: 

P-PRP (Pure Platelet Rich Plasma) is a preparation that contains highly concentrated platelet growth factors with reduced RBCs (red blood cells). The preparation is obtained without leukocytes and shows low-density fibrin network after activation. All the products can be used as activated gel form or as liquid solution. 

It can therefore be injected and placed during gelling on skin. 

Uses:

-The procedure uses your own blood 

-Stimulates the body’s natural healing process

-Can reverse the effects of aging on skin 

 

Leukocyte and Platelet Rich Plasma:

L-PRP Leukocytes and Platelet Rich Plasma-the preparation contains leukocytes and shows low density of fibrin network after activation. It contains high concentration of platelets and other bioactivities, which play an important role in both soft tissue and bone healing processes. All the products can be used as activated gel form or as liquid solution. 

It can therefore be injected and placed during gelling on skin. 

Uses:

Used to treat open traumatic injuries

Pure Platelet Rich Fibrin: 

P-PRF Pure Platelet Rich Fibrin or leukocyte poor platelet rich fibrin are preparations without leukocytes and with a high density of fibrin network. This technique does not require anticoagulants or nay other platelet activator agent. 

The products only exist in activated gel form and cannot be injected or used like traditional fibrin glues. 

Uses:

It can be used in bone regeneration 

Graft stabilization 

Wound healing 

Wound sealing 

Hemostasis 

Leukocytes-and Platelet Rich Fibrin:

L-PRF is a 3-D autogenous combination of Platelet rich fibrin derived from your blood. The products are preparation with leukocytes and with a density of fibrin network. 

The products only exist in activated gel form and cannot be injected or used like traditional fibrin glues. 

Uses: 

Inexpensive 

Time saving process 

Does need hospitalization 

PRP therapy is becoming more popular these days because it uses patient’s own healing or immune system to improve musculoskeletal problems.
