To compare platelet rich plasma (PRP) and fibrin glue about the effect of anastomotic healing.
Osteochondral lesions remain as a clinical challenge despite the advances in orthopedic regenerative strategies. Biologics, in particular, platelet-rich plasma, has been applied for the reparative and...
The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) and plasma rich in growth factors (PRGF) on peripheral nerve injury in the early period of healing.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) refers to an enriched platelet suspension in plasma. In addition to the clinical application of PRP in the context of various orthopedic diseases and beyond, PRP and platele...
Injectable platelet-rich fibrin (I-PRF) is a flowable blood concentrate that is entirely natural and allows ease of access and flow within the root canal. It was first developed in 2014 by...
Autologous platelet rich fibrin matrix will release growth factors which could increase the production of dermal proteins or affect the vascularity and status of neighboring tissues. This ...
This study is meant to assess clinically the possible predictable clinical attachment gain regarding the use of vitamin C with platelet rich fibrin versus platelet rich fibrin alone in the...
Melasma is a common acquired disorder characterized by symmetric, hyperpigmented patches with an irregular outline, occurring most commonly on the face. The therapy for melasma has always ...
Background: To compare the effectiveness of open flap debridement (OFD) alone and OFD along with either Autologous Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF) or Titanium Platelet Rich Fibrin (TPRF) in the...
A fibrin matrix derived from platelet-rich plasma that contains high concentration of BLOOD PLATELETS; LEUKOCYTES; CYTOKINES; and GROWTH FACTORS. It is used in a variety of clinical and TISSUE ENGINEERING applications.
A preparation consisting of PLATELETS concentrated in a limited volume of PLASMA. This is used in various surgical tissue regeneration procedures where the GROWTH FACTORS in the platelets enhance wound healing and regeneration.
The preparation of platelet concentrates with the return of red cells and platelet-poor plasma to the donor.
Retraction of a clot resulting from contraction of PLATELET pseudopods attached to FIBRIN strands. The retraction is dependent on the contractile protein thrombosthenin. Clot retraction is used as a measure of platelet function.
A rare, inherited platelet disorder characterized by a selective deficiency in the number and contents of platelet alpha-granules. It is associated with THROMBOCYTOPENIA, enlarged platelets, and prolonged bleeding time.
Blood is a specialized bodily fluid that delivers necessary substances to the body's cells (in animals) – such as nutrients and oxygen – and transports waste products away from those same cells. In vertebrates, it is composed of blo...
