Wound healing remains a concern in primary total joint arthroplasty, given the risk of deep infections arising from hematomas, wound separations, and superficial infections. If wound additives can prevent these early complications, their universal application would be cost-effective. This study examined whether 2 wound additives, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and activated collagen, would improve postoperative wound healing and reduce complications in primary total joint arthroplasty. A prospective, randomized controlled study was conducted using 3 cohorts with 30 patients each (group 1: PRP; group 2: activated collagen; and group 3: control)...

Platelets storage lesion is mainly orchestrated by platelet activating signals during storage. Reactive oxygen species (ROS) are being considered as important signaling molecules modulating platelet function while their production has also been shown to be augmented by platelet activation. This study investigated to what extent endogenous ROS generation during platelet storage could be correlated with platelet receptor shedding, microvesiculation and adhesive function. 10 PRP-platelet concentrates were subjected to flow cytometry analysis to examine the generation of intraplatelet ROS on days 1, 5 and 7 after storage...

Bone regeneration is a complex process influenced by various physiological factors. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) contains many growth factors and has shown osteogenic effects. The PRP is usually activated before use. However, the authors showed that nonactivated PRP (nPRP) and activated PRP have comparable osteogenic effects in the previous study. Generally, a scaffold has been needed for the application of PRP in the cranial defect model. In this study, the authors aimed to compare the performance of scaffold free platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) to nPRP as an adjuvant for bone regeneration...

BACKGROUND: Limited information in basic science and clinical trials exists to determine if ligament healing may be accelerated with the use of biological adjuvants, such as platelet-rich plasma (PRP). However, there has been widespread acceptance of PRP for use in clinical practice, despite an inadequate understanding of its biological mechanism of action. PURPOSE: To determine whether a single dose of PRP could accelerate ligament healing and correspondingly improve histological characteristics and biomechanical properties when injected immediately postoperatively into the injured medial collateral ligament (MCL) of New Zealand White rabbits...

Background: In previous papers, we demonstrated that the treatment of human photoaged skin with stromal-vascular fraction-enriched fat or expanded adipose-derived stem cells showed a decrease of elastosis and the appearance of new oxytalan elastic fibers in dermis and an increase in the vascular network. The utilization of fat plus platelet-rich plasma (PRP) led to an increase in the vascular permeability and reactivity of the nervous component. Objectives: The purpose of this study was to analyze the histologic and ultrastructural changes of human skin after the injection of only PRP in the retroauricular area that was not exposed to sun and did not present the photoaging process, in comparison with our previous results...

A calibrated automated thrombogram (CAT) is performed usually with human platelet-free plasma (PFP) but may be more relevant with platelet-rich plasma (PRP). In this case, platelets are not stimulated by subendothelial molecules like collagen. Our aim was to assess the consequence of strong (collagen) or weak (ADP) induction of platelet release and aggregation on thrombin generation. Platelet aggregation in PRP was triggered with 10 µg/mL collagen or 10 µM ADP using a lumi-aggregometer. Thrombin generation curves were monitored by CAT in different conditions: PRP, PRP with activated platelets (actPRP), aggregated PRP (agPRP), aggregated platelets resuspended in autologous PFP (resPRP), PFP and PFP obtained after aggregation (agPFP)...

Essentials Collagen and thrombin when used simultaneously generate highly activated platelets. The effect of thrombin stimulation on subsequent glycoprotein VI (GPVI) function was observed. Soluble fibrin, but not protease activated receptor (PAR) activation, prevented GPVI activation. Circulating soluble fibrin in coagulopathic blood may cause an acquired GPVI signaling defect. SUMMARY: Background In coagulopathic blood, circulating thrombin may drive platelet dysfunction. Methods/Results Using calcium dye-loaded platelets, the effect of thrombin exposure and soluble fibrin generation on subsequent platelet GPVI function was investigated...

BACKGROUND: Shoulder osteoarthritis is a gradual wearing of the articular cartilage concomitant with degenerative rotator cuff tears (RCTs). This pathologic disorder is related to inflammation, oxidative stress, and angiogenesis. Degenerative alterations may prompt production of cytokines and angiogenesis-related proteins, evoking rotator cuff diseases. This study tested the hypothesis that oxidative stress-responsive mediators can influence joint inflammation of patients with RCT. METHODS: Twelve healthy RCT patients not suffering shoulder osteoarthritis were categorized as the control group, and 24 patients were allocated to 2 RCT groups (RCTP1 and RCTP2), according to severity of RCT and glenohumeral arthritis...
