    Outcome of Intra-operative Injected Platelet-rich Plasma Therapy During Follicular Unit Extraction Hair Transplant: A Prospective Randomised Study in Forty Patients.

    Abstract
    CONTEXT:

    Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy is finding importance in aesthetic medicine.

    AIM:

    The objective of this study was to study efficacy of PRP therapy in follicular unit extraction (FUE) hair transplant.

    MATERIALS AND METHODS:

    It is a single-blind, prospective randomised study on 40 FUE hair transplant subjects, allocated in two groups (PRP and non-PRP) alternately. PRP was injected intra-operatively immediately after creating slits over the recipient area in PRP group; and normal saline in non-PRP group. Two groups were evaluated at 2, 4 and 8 weeks, 3 and 6 months of the procedure.

    STATISTICAL ANALYSIS:

    It was done using Chi-square test and test of significance was set as P < 0.05.

    RESULTS:

    In PRP group, all subjects had >75% hair regrowth at 6 months, density of >75% grafts was noticed in 12 patients at 4 weeks meaning reduced fall of transplanted hair during catagen phase. New hair growth started at 8 weeks in 16 patients and redness over recipient area completely disappeared in 19 patients at 3 months of surgery and activity in dormant follicles as fine thread like hair was noticed besides the thick transplanted hair in all subjects. In non-PRP group, four patients had >75% hair regrowth at 6 months; none showed >75% graft density at 4 weeks, and 13 subjects showed dormant follicle activity at 4 months. The number of patients having lengthier hairs was significantly more in PRP group.

    CONCLUSION:
    Intra-operative PRP therapy is beneficial in giving faster density, reducing the catagen loss of transplanted hair, recovering the skin faster and activating dormant follicles in FUE transplant subjects.


    What do you think about that?

    "density of >75% grafts was noticed in 12 patients at 4 weeks meaning reduced fall of transplanted hair during catagen phase."

    It's blatantly obvious this data is made up. In reality across the thousands of results I have looked at involving PRP this is simply not the case. Hard to trust the rest of the study when that is so blatantly false.
