Modulation of Wound Response and Soft Tissue Ingrowth into Synthetic and Allogeneic Implants with Platelet Rich Plasma

Microscopy slidePrincipal Investigator: Anthony P. Sclafani, M.D., F.A.C.S.

Objective: This study is designed to evaluate the effects of various blood elements on wound healing and soft tissue ingrowth into a synthetic porous material and into an acellular human dermal graft.  Comparing the results in these two materials will give a greater understanding of the factors involved in tissue ingrowth into porous materials.

Project Co-Investigator is Gene Ukrainsky, M.D.
