Nowadays, the Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is frequently used for its therapeutic effects on wound healing, and this due to secretion of many growth factors. However, no standardized procedure has been set up. The aim of this article is to check the various preparations (centrifugation time and speed). This review recorded all the international articles published between 2007 and 2018, for which the assessment criteria were the platelet concentration and /or the growth factor release rate. A multitude of protocols has been looked at with a simple or double centrifugation. All of them have shown an increase in the platelet concentration allowing a therapeutic effect. However, when the centrifugation force is extended, platelets can possibly be altered. The diversity of methods can be linked to the use of various centrifuges. A procedure with simple centrifugation would be a good compromise for the day-to-day use of the PRP in surgery.

Published materials which provide an examination of recent or current literature. Review articles can cover a wide range of subject matter at various levels of completeness and comprehensiveness based on analyses of literature that may include research findings. The review may reflect the state of the art. It also includes reviews as a literary form.
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.
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.
The preparation of platelet concentrates with the return of red cells and platelet-poor plasma to the donor.
An article or book published after examination of published material on a subject. It may be comprehensive to various degrees and the time range of material scrutinized may be broad or narrow, but the reviews most often desired are reviews of the current literature. The textual material examined may be equally broad and can encompass, in medicine specifically, clinical material as well as experimental research or case reports. State-of-the-art reviews tend to address more current matters. A review of the literature must be differentiated from HISTORICAL ARTICLE on the same subject, but a review of historical literature is also within the scope of this publication type.
