PRP is an autologous concentrate of platelets in a small volume of plasma with a platelet concentration greater than 1 million per milliliter of serum or greater than five times the baseline value of 150,000-350,000 / µl.

PRP is a source of cytokines, growth factors, and alpha-granules that promote tissue repair and wound healing.

PRP is used with an autologous process so it is NOT associated with allergic reactions or problems with self-antigens or hetero-antigens!

Local and systemic action of the PRP:

  • Modulation of inflammation with anti-inflammatory action
    stem cells recall with reduction of chondrocyte apoptosis and chondrogenesi
  • Angiogenesis and synthesis of a new cellular matrix
  • Induction of the release of further growth factors
  • Analgesic and bacteriostatic action to slow down bacterial proliferation


Clinical indications in the orthopedic field with varying levels of evidence in different pathologies and districts for reparative treatments of:
reconstruction of the anterior cruciate ligament

  • Tendinopathies (patellar, epicondylitis, Achilles tendon)
