They looked at 88 patients with small to medium sized rotator cuff tears and randomized to arthroscopic double-row repair with autologous PRFM
augmentation or without PRFM
Students will also gain training knowledge on the process of turning PRP into PRFM
safely and with optimal results for the patient prioritized.
We searched extensively for a PRP system which would provide important and unique benefits to our customers and their patients; we found this with Cascade's PRFM system.
Adrian Lock, PulseVet's[R] Chief Operating Officer, said, "The ProTec[TM] PRFM technology is a very compelling and complementary product for us.
Obtained in a simple intraprocedural process, PRP and PRFM, when applied to an injury site, accelerate the natural healing response by providing sustained release of platelet derived growth factors in a natural fibrin scaffold.
Minutes later, the clear, yellow PRFM
is injected into your skin, where it immediately starts to encourage the production of collagen and new cells.
In the 10-week study, four healthy adult volunteers were injected with PRFM in their upper arms.
The study also notes that people treated with PRFM typically describe their skin as "softer" after 8 to 12 weeks.
The benefits of PRFM to improve the skin's tone and texture are now better understood at the tissue level," stated Dr.
Autologous PRP and PRFM
are biologic preparations that are derived from the patient's own blood.
The randomized trial broke the 79 patients into two groups: those that received the PRFM and those that did not.
Researchers think there may be several reasons for a lack of response in healing, including variability in the way platelets are recovered, platelet activation and the mechanisms for the way the PRFM reacts with the tendon cells.
