The effect of platelet-rich plasma on early and late bone healing using a mixture of particulate autogenous cancellous bone and Bio-Oss: an experimental study in goats.

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP), containing various growth factors, may speed up wound and bone healing. Using osteoconductive alloplastic materials in reconstructive surgery, the amount of autogenous bone needed can be reduced. The purpose of this experiment was to study the effect of PRP on a mixture of autogenous bone and deproteinized bovine bone mineral… CONTINUE READING
