Dr. C asks:
When using PRP [Platelet Rich Plasma] for surgeries, are you using bovine thrombin to coagulate the platelets? I have heard that there can be a medical issue using bovine thrombin in human subjects, but I don’t know what that problem is and whether the use of the thrombin to coagulate the PRP can cause any damage. Has anybody experienced any problems when using this technique? Should I be concerned about the dangers of this technique?
