The Effects of Autologous Platelet-Rich Fibrin on Flexor Tendon Healing in a Rabbit Model.

Abstract

PURPOSE Platelet-rich plasma containing large amounts of growth factors is purported to increase repaired flexor tendon strength. However, the use of bovine thrombin has the risk of antibody formation. We evaluated the effects of the newer generation autologous platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) on flexor tendon healing. METHODS We performed surgical repair of 32… (More)
