PURPOSE The collection of autologous platelet-rich plasma (PRP) has demonstrated favorable affects on wound healing in compromised patients. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the expression of PDGF, bFGF, and TGF-beta in irradiated and nonirradiated bone in a rabbit tibia model and the ability of PRP to increase growth factor expression when added… CONTINUE READING
