PRP tubes provides 2 ml of fresh PRP from 9 ml of blood collected at the coronary artery. Platelets release growth factors but also cause coagulation. PRP is mainly used by qualified medical practitioners and this method is an autologous process. The blood from a human donor is used for the purpose of treating acute myeloid leukemia (AML), non-Hodgkins lymphoma (NHL) and myelodysplasia (MD) with high frequency.
There are several benefits that are associated with the usage of prp tubes for platelet rich plasma therapy. This procedure is ideal in the treatment of patients who have been diagnosed with hematologic cancers like leukemia, blood cancer or non-Hodgkins lymphoma. The blood obtained through this procedure can be collected into single units for future treatment in case a patient suffers from a sudden blood loss. This is a painless procedure as blood collection in this manner is extremely quick and does not require any general anesthesia. In addition to that, there are several advantages that are associated with the platelet rich plasma treatment like the ability to alter the platelet content by means of centrifugation or removal of solid particles that are insoluble.
Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy is known to help in the cure of many types of blood diseases including leukemia, multiple myeloma, non-Hodgkins lymphoma, blood clotting disorders and sickle cell anemia. It is also effective in the treatment of patients who are suffering from autoimmune disorders like rheumatoid arthritis, Lupus erythematosus, etc. PRP is mainly used for the treatment of patients who are suffering from diseases that have their root in platelet involvement like bleeding disorders, platelet-rich plasma syndrome and leukemia/blood cancer. This is because platelet is essential in the production of antibodies, which are major components of the immune system. The process of using prp preparation in the treatment of these disorders is termed as "platelet-aid therapy".
There are several benefits that are associated with platelet rich plasma therapy. Firstly, it reduces the incidence of infection in the region of application. In addition to that, it also enhances wound healing. This can be used to enhance wound healing in burn victims, people with sores, open wounds and other such patients whose skin is not sufficiently regenerated. Wound healing when aided by or treatment is normally faster as compared to normal skin rejuvenation procedures.
A recent development in PRP tubes is known as the "IntraLase" system that utilizes IntraLase polymerization to inject a specific type of growth factor directly into the blood vessel. This growth factor has the property of inhibiting platelet aggregation. The IntraLase system does not use anticoagulants as it does not require them. It results in less pain and blood loss, and allows early closure of hemostatics.
IntraLase or tubes are relatively expensive as compared to other types of prp procedure. IntraLase is useful for single or multiple site treatment of deep wounds as well as those requiring repeat treatments. It is also possible to use IntraLase for the treatment of pre-term babies and children and can be used in conjunction with other treatments for the purpose of overcoming platelet deficiency syndrome (PDS) and other deficiencies that occur at birth. IntraLase is capable of treating a wide range of blood disorders and has been successful in achieving successful results in a number of applications where other treatment modalities have failed.
