Abstract


Background: Platelet rich plasma (PRP) & Platelet rich fibrin (PRF) plays important role in wound healing.  Those raised my interest to assess the use of PRP  & PRF in ENT to assess its effect on wound healing. PRP Injection used in Reducing Facial scar, Postoperative scar, Intratympanic Injection for sudden sensorineural hearing loss (SNHL). PRF used in Rhinoplasty for smooth nasal dorsum & less postoperative oedema and for mastoid obliteration to reduce post-operative infections and also used to close post-operated skull base defects. Aim:  The purpose of this study to validate enhanced healing effect of PRF & PRP therapy in ENT. Methodology: PRP & PRF were prepared with 10cc venous blood of patient with help of centrifugal machine. PRP Injection given in patients with Facial scar, Sudden SNHL, Postoperative scar. PRF used in Rhinoplasty , mastoid obliteration & Post-operated skull base defect. Patients were assessed by examining the effect of PRP Injection & postoperative result after using PRF. Result:  We have noticed Less postoperative odema, scarring, infection and improvement in SNHL. Conclusion:  Although our findings were short-term in our study, but we found there is a significant improvement in Postoperative oedema, Infection & Scarring
