PRP is also known as platelet enhanced therapy .This involves blood being collected and then processed to concentrate the platelets. These are then injected into the site of the lesion. The activation of the platelets occurs at time of injection.
Activation will release growth factors that are anabolic or promote the production of tissue. This can be fibrous tissue, the type of fibrous tissue is important as there are several different collagen types that make up the fibrous tissue.
Bourton Vale hosted a client evening at the Adlestrop Village Hall on Wednesday 1st Novewmber. The evening was kindly sponsored by Boehringer Ingleheim and was a huge success; allowing attendees to meet the new members of our team and have an introduction to a variety of topics.
