PRP treatment has many benefits for patients with acute or recurrent bleeding. The term “PRP” refers to the high-pressure, pulsed infusions of platelets and plasma obtained directly from the heart. Autologous platelet-based plasma, also called autologous prepared plasma, is a high concentration of platelet-rich plasma protein extracted from human plasma, incubated with coagulation Factor I to remove red blood cells from the process. This highly concentrated product is more stable and contains higher concentrations of important compounds that may be beneficial in the management of patients with acute bleeding.

Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy has been shown to provide immediate improvements in symptoms of allergic rhinitis and eosinophilic esophagitis, as well as delayed recovery time in patients with acute hematologic disorders. PRP therapy has also shown to improve platelet stability, enhance cell proliferation and delay vessel degeneration in patients with deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism. In addition, patients receiving PRP treatment have had an immediate improvement in their markers for bone and joint function and bone mineral density. These benefits have led to an increase in interest in PRP treatment.
Although the initial price of platelet rich plasma-based treatments may be higher than some other forms of treatments, the potential benefits are well worth the cost. PRP injections are often performed on an outpatient basis under local anesthetic and are considered to be safer and more convenient than IV fluids and other forms of PRP treatments. Patients are usually able to return to work and engage in typical day-to-day activities shortly after the last PRP injection. To date, no known side effects occur from or injections, which make them an ideal choice for many patients suffering from hemorrhagic or platelet-dependent conditions.
