  • Platelet-rich plasma - PRP - preparation

    Platelet-rich plasma is the part of the patient's own blood where platelets concentrate. PRP is currently used in orthopedics to improve tissue healing and reduce inflammation.

    Platelet-rich plasma - PRP - preparation

    Platelet-rich plasma is produced by centrifuging the patient's venous blood and separating the fraction in which there is a high concentration of platelets. Depending on the amount of PRP needed, between 10 and 40 ml of blood are drawn. The preparation process takes several minutes.

    When do we use PRP?

    The platelets contained in PRP release growth factors such as: PDGF, TGF-B, VEGF, IGF-1. These factors have a laboratory proven effect of increasing the amount of fibroblasts in the ligaments, increasing the production of type I collagen, thus increasing the healing process. The above action measurably reduces knee pain in patients.

    PRP in orthopedics is used in the treatment of degenerative pain of the knee, supporting the treatment of meniscal damage, treatment of enthesopathy (jumper's knee, Achilles tendon enthesopathy), and supporting the treatment of bone union disorders.

    Platelet-rich plasma - the future

    Certainly, not everything about the operation of PRP is known yet. Currently, many studies are underway, thanks to which we will learn about the detailed mechanism of action of growth factors and we will be able to precisely define the indications for their use.
    PRP is a safe method and can bring many benefits to patients.
    Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy


    autologous and safe form of treatment used in orthopedics

    One of the biological methods of treatment that we use at the Medical Magnus Clinic with good results in patients with musculoskeletal disorders is PLATE-rich plasma therapy .

    Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy consists in administering to the patient (in the form of an injection into the affected area) his own plasma. Plasma from the Patient's previously collected blood is introduced into the body. After the administration of platelet-rich plasma, platelets very quickly release high concentrations of growth factors, initiating the process of tissue, cell and vessel regeneration, strongly stimulating biological renewal.

    Platelet-rich plasma is the fraction of plasma in which there is a concentrated amount of platelets. Such concentrated platelets contain a higher concentration of platelet-derived growth factors, which participate in regenerative processes. Platelet-rich plasma can contain 2 to 9 times more platelets per unit volume than normal blood.
    We have experience in the treatment of platelet-rich plasma in the following indications:

    • osteoarthritis,
    • injuries, damage to tendons, ligaments, joints,
    • muscle injuries,
    • tennis / golfer's elbow,
    • jumper's / runner's knee,
    • articular cartilage damage,
    • cruciate ligament injuries,
    • meniscus damage,
    • damage to the rotator cuff,
    • inflammation and damage to the Achilles tendon,
    • fractures and non-union after fractures,
    • delayed bone union,
    • injuries and overload changes,
    • sports injuries,
    • after procedures, operations in the area of ​​tendons, ligaments, articular cartilage,
    • hard to heal wounds, ulcers.
    Benefits of platelet-rich plasma therapy for the patient:

    • significant pain reduction,
    • increasing the range of motion,
    • reconstruction of cartilage and bone tissue,
    • accelerated regeneration and improvement of the function of muscles, tendons and ligaments,
    • accelerated wound healing,
    • improving the quality and comfort of life and everyday functioning,
    • long-term effectiveness,
    • enabling the postponement or avoidance of surgery,
    • perfect tolerance profile - autologous treatment, without the risk of allergies.
    Platelet-rich plasma therapy is SAFE.

    Platelet-rich plasma is collected from the patient's own blood and administered to the affected area in a short time. No activators are added. Therefore, the risk of intolerance, allergies, immune reactions and viral transmissions is minimized.
    Some patients may experience a slight soreness or bruising at the injection site after the procedure. They disappear after a few days.
    Learn about the STAGES of platelet-rich plasma therapy:

    Before the procedure, you should drink at least 1.5 liters of water during the day.

    1. Taking blood from the patient with prp tubes. The patient does not need to be fasting. Blood is drawn from a vein in the crook of the elbow.
    2. Obtaining platelet-rich plasma. The collected blood is centrifuged in a special laboratory centrifuge.
    3. Administration of platelet-rich plasma in the form of an injection (injection) into the affected area.

    The orthopedic physician in charge of a given Patient decides about the number of treatments that make up an individual treatment plan for a Patient. It is recommended to perform a minimum of 3 treatments.
    There are several contraindications to the platelet-rich plasma treatment:

    • taking aspirin and other painkillers (including non-steroid drugs),
    • blood diseases: platelet dysfunction syndromes, critical thrombocytopenia, fibrinogen deficiency, haemodynamic instability, sepsis,
    • cancers, including leukemias, myelomas (the patient may be qualified for the procedure if at least 5 years have passed since the end of treatment),
    • pregnancy and lactation,
    • treatment with anticoagulants,
    • liver diseases: acute inflammation or cirrhosis of the liver,
    • acute conditions of autoimmune diseases.
