CERVOS PRP - ACDA
CER-ACD-A Components to perform a blood draw including ACD-a anti-coagulant. The blood sourced is to be used with a CERVOS PRP Procedure Pack. PRP made with CERVOS patent pending technology uses a double centrifugation technique. Studies have shown that a double spin technique is the optimal protocol for concentrating platelets. The first step uses a shorter spin to isolate the platelets in a plasma suspension above red blood cells. This plasma is transferred to a second chamber and a second spin is used to pellet the platelets to be resuspended in a small amount of plasma. The concentrated platelets, protein signaling factors, and progenitor cells has become a standard of care. It provides a first line of treatment that is autologous and minimally invasive. Studies have shown that platelet-rich plasma has been found to significantly enhance the healing process. Using a PRP injection for shoulder pain caused by rotator cuff tears or Achilles tendon tears or for other soft-tissue injuries is becoming more common. PRP has also been demonstrated to improve function and reduce pain in people who have chronic conditions such as tennis elbow or other minor pain due to damaged tendons and ligaments. Some of the key advantages of PRP injections are that they can reduce the need for anti-inflammatories or stronger medications like opioids. In addition, the side effects of PRP injections are very limited because since the injections are created from your own blood, your body will not reject or react negatively to them.
