What is the PRP procedure like?
The treatment of PRP is relatively simple and can be completed within an hour. Blood is drawn from the patient (approximately 20cc). The blood is then transferred to a 30mm cylinder (YES PRP Kit). The doctor immediately places the blood into a centrifuge for separation, which takes approximately 8 minutes. Once the Platelet Rich Plasma is separated, it is transferred to a syringe for injection. PPP is distinctly visible and may be used separately or mixed with the PRP.
If physicians use a product for an indication not in the approved labeling, they have to inform the patient, adhere to good medical practice and have the responsibility to be well informed about the product, to base its use on firm scientific rationale and on sound medical evidence and to maintain records of the product’s use and effects (source: www.fda.gov)
