BACKGROUND The rationale for using topical platelet gel therapy is to provide the healing tissues with concentrated platelet-derived factors. Several systems are available to prepare platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and from these, the platelet gel. These systems produce two- to six-fold platelet and growth factor-enriched concentrations. The bioavailability of growth factors in tissue healing depends on the amount of growth factors stored in platelets but a portion of these is lost during platelet… CONTINUE READING
