The Power of Blood
As part of the body’s capacity to heal itself, platelets and other components in human blood migrate to a site of injury. Platelets are known to release a
variety of factors that respond to tissue injury, where they initiate and promote healing. By concentrating platelets at the site of injury, physicians have
the potential to enhance the body’s natural capacity for healing.
What is PRP?
PRP is a solution of plasma and platelets where the platele concentration is higher than whole blood.
Optimal platelet concentration is 2-3X greater than whole blood.
Definition of PRP does NOT include red blood cells (RBC) or white blood cells (WBC).
RBC and WBC should be removed as much as possible from PRP preparation.
PRP kits that tout high platelet concentrations often have contaminating RBCs or WBCs which have inflammatory and catabolic effects causing opposite effect of desired outcome.
Pink or red PRP has RBC contamination.
The ideal PRP solution will be a golden, straw-like color.
