PRP and Exosomes in Regenerative Gynecology

  • 362 Accesses

Abstract

The most exciting area of medicine today is regenerative procedures. Regenerative procedures are those that involve biologic tissue to help heal injury and disease. Classifications of regenerative procedures are either autologous which is the source derived from the recipients own body such as platelet-rich plasma, adipose tissue or bone marrow. The second is allograft. An allograft is transplanted from one human to another originating mostly from prenatal tissue. We will explore how regenerative procedures may be applied in female intimate care.
