Examples of applications of PRP in wound care:
- venous ulcer
- arterial ulcer
- diabetic foot syndrome
- pilonidal sinus
- wound with tendon exposure
Wound healing disorders
Studies have shown that adult mesenchymal stem cells, osteoblasts, fibroblasts, endothelial cells and epidermal cells express the cell membrane receptors for growth factors in PRP.
This retrospective study shows that routine use of PRP can significantly reduce the incidence of both DSWI and SSWI without adverse reactions. In addition, the cost of preventive treatment with PRP is definitely lower than a 1-day hospital stay.
In conclusion, A-PRP/thrombin gel in combination with STSG (split thickness skin graft) could improve the healing time of complex and difficult wounds, providing a basis for healing skin loss after NSTI (necrotising soft tissue infection) without side effects and with minimal recovery time.
Diabetic foot ulcers are a major cause of morbidity in diabetic patients, severely affecting quality of life and often leading to limb loss. Growth factors have been suggested as a useful tool for ulcer healing in such patients. These are biologically active polypeptides that alter the growth, differentiation and metabolism of target cells and stimulate cell proliferation, chemotaxis and angiogenesis.
