Can platelet rich plasma applied to nerve bundles at time of surgery help the nerve bundles heal? Subjects undergoing a Radical Prostatectomy who meet study inclusion/exclusion criteria will be consented to receive an intraoperative application of platelet-rich plasma, made from their own blood at the time of surgery, for application onto their neurovascular bundles in an effort to improve the healing process. Subjects will be followed for an additional 18 months to determine the efficacy and safety of this procedure.

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.
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.
Human alloantigens expressed only on platelets, specifically on platelet membrane glycoproteins. These platelet-specific antigens are immunogenic and can result in pathological reactions to transfusion therapy.
