  • TITLE: Role of Platelet Rich Plasma in Treatment of Diabetic Foot Ulcers

    AUTHORS: Aymen Salem, Ahmad M. Tawfik

    KEYWORDS: Ulcer, Platelet, Plasma, Offloading and Moist Dressing

    JOURNAL NAME: Surgical Science, Vol.7 No.6, June 16, 2016

    ABSTRACT: Objectives: The aim of this study is to compare between the platelet rich plasma and balanced moist dressing as regards the healing rate in chronic non ischemic diabetic foot ulcers. Patients and Method: From Feb. 2014 till May 2015, 73 patients from the attendees to Zagazig university hospitals were selected to our study. 2 groups were created, one for PRP (platelet rich plasma) and the other for balanced moist dressing. Frequent registration for the number of healed ulcers was done every week. Results: By the end of the 3rd week almost all the ulcers in the PRP group were healed. But the other group needed about 8th weeks for the same results. Conclusion: PRP seems to be an attractive choice in management of chronic diabetic ulcers provided that there is good blood supply and proper offloading was done.
