Angel PRP System

Healing injuries involves a well-orchestrated and complex series of events where proteins in the blood called growth factors act as messengers, regulating the entire process. Many growth factors involved in the healing process are derived from small cells called platelets. Platelets are colorless cells present in blood. They are formed in the bone marrow by pinching off pieces of cytoplasm that are then released into the blood stream. Normally, in a resting state, platelets are not active. However, when an injury occurs, the platelets are activated releasing growth factors which then signal the healing process to begin.

Platelets contain many growth factors that are known to be important parts of the healing process.  The main functions of these proteins are: To induce growth of various cells (stem cells, epidermal cells, bone cells), enhance production of collagen, and stimulate blood vessel formation.

For many years autologous blood product, or blood components derived from the patient and then delivered to a point of care, have created growing interest for use in a number of orthopedic procedures. The aim of this technology is to provide physicians with a method of providing concentrated levels of beneficial growth factors for use at the point of care.
