PRP or Platelet-rich plasma therapy is becoming popular nowadays. All started in the 1970’s, today researchers are busy finding various applications of this plasma therapy. These studies are now looking out for possibilities where this therapy can be used medically to treat various ailments. 

What is a PRP?

Platelets are the most important component of our blood that sustain the organs and the tissues of our body by distributing nutrients and oxygen to them. They are mixed with red blood and white blood cells. They help in producing antibodies to fight against infections and also result in blood clotting to avoid any blood loss.

PRP therapy uses these concentrated platelets to help repair damaged tissue or any wound healing. Here the blood sample is extracted from the patient and is stored in the tubes. These blood samples then go through the centrifugation process where the platelets are separated from the blood cells and the stem cells. 

This separation process includes three methods like the gel separator, buffy coat and buffy coat with double spin. The concentrated Platelet is then injected into the patient’s affected areas to get the required results. 

For this, you need to get a good PRP kit from a renowned supplier. Dr Renat Akhmerov’s Plasmolifting technologies are well-known for these products in Berlin. You can get everything like the tubes for platelet-rich plasma (PRP), injections, and many more supplies. They can help their customers get a good deal at their convenience.

Applications of PRP

  1. PRP can be helpful for wound healing in C-section deliveries. Many obstetricians have concluded that PRP can help close incisions in high-risk patients like diabetic mothers, mothers having twins etc. leading to their quick recovery. They have also noted that there is less leakage, redness and bruising under the skin of such patients. 
  2. PRP can help heal fistulas. Fistulas usually occur due to some injury and infections. To heal them you require surgery to be done. If left untreated, it can also lead to cancer. One example is the gap between the rectum and the vagina that is the result of vaginal birth. 
  3. PRP has been helpful for women who had trouble conceiving or carrying a pregnancy. Women who had been treated with PRP had very healthy babies. Problems that PRP can help includes:
  1. Damaged or underdeveloped ovaries.
  2. Inadequate thickness of the lining of the uterus
  3. Usage during the IVF procedure. 
  4. Men having problems like erectile dysfunction can also use PRP therapy
  5. Maternal-fetal medicine is another method that can treat birth defects in a fetus inside the mother’s womb. The doctors can remove the fetus and do some surgery to repair the defects and again place the foetus inside the womb. PRP can also help to heal the tears inside the sac. These tears can lead to miscarriage or any other birth defects. Here the PRP therapy can strengthen the placenta and help a mother deliver normally.

To conclude with this, PRP therapy is a safe therapy with no adverse side effects.
