Peripheral Nerve Repair Using PRP
Every year, 350,000 patients are affected by traumatic peripheral nerve injuries, which accounts for $150 billion in annual health care costs (Griffin et al., 2013).

PRP advances are giving rise to many new possibilities for patient care. PRPs are versatile and safe biological products to be harnessed by surgeons and clinicians as an adjuvant therapeutic tool to enhance the nerve repair processes… They may assist nerve conduit guidances and grafts as a filler, as a liquid in intraneural and perineural ultrasound-guided injections in nerve entrapments and fibrosis, and as a scaffold to bridge or wrap the injured nerve gap.
6 Lines Of Evidence
Six lines of evidence suggest the therapeutic potential use of PRPs on neural tissue repair and regeneration. These include the prevention of cell apoptosis and neuroprotection, the stimulation of angiogenesis, modulation of inflammatory microenvironment, the enhancement of axonal outgrowth and nerve guidance, the dampening of both denervated muscle atrophy and scarring that follow peripheral nerve trauma and damage, and the improvement of neurologic parameters in humans.
