PRP provides an innovative and efficient approach for the healing of difficult wounds.
PRP is thought to promote physiological healing and accelerate tissue regeneration by delivering high concentration of growth and clotting factors essential for connective tissue healing; regenerative properties to aid in the repair of bone, tendon, cartilage and ligaments; promoting development of new blood vessels and stimulating wound healing.
Platelet concentrate functions as a tissue sealant and has been used to treat wounds for long time, these cells initiate wound repair by releasing locally acting growth factors via degranulation of the alpha granules. PRP may provide a solution also when dealing with acute or chronic wounds, in which the healing environment may become impaired by individual patient factors and wound factors.
- Leg Ulcers
- Diabetic Ulcers
- Pressures Sores
- Surgical Wounds
- Skin Graft
Treating the wound site with Tropocells® PRP helps:
- initiate and accelerate tissue synthesis, tissue, bone and joint surface regeneration
- promote the development of new blood vessels
- decreasing the occurrence of infection, complications and discomfort
- speeding up the natural wound healing time
- Significantly reducing post-operative pain.
How does Tropocells® PRP functions?
- Tissue sealant (re-approximating incisions and wounds)
- Drug delivery system by releasing growth factors that triggers cell division
- Decrease inflammation by interacting with macrophages to improve tissue healing and regeneration
- Promote capillary growth and accelerate epithelialization
- Using Tropocells® PRP in Cardiac surgery helps reducing the occurrence of sternal wound infections.
SIMPLIFYING PRP PREPARATION
THE PRP PROCESS
FDA cleared 510(k) Class II medical device: Tropocells PRP is intended for the safe and rapid preparation of autologous platelet-rich plasma (PRP) from a small sample of blood at the patient point of care. The PRP is mixed with autograft or allograft bone prior to application to a bony defect for improving handling characteristics. 510(k) number: BK110035
