This book provides a comprehensive, state-of-the art summary of platelet rich plasmas (PRPs) in the field of regenerative medicine. The book begins with an overview of the basic science behind PRP, describing the role of platelets and growth factors followed by the most important biological effects expected from the use of PRPs.
Platelet Rich Plasma in Orthopaedics, Sports Medicine and Maxillofacial Surgery includes numerous contributions detailing the current use of PRPs in clinical practice. From the origins in oral and maxillofacial surgery, to the latest advances in orthopaedics and sports medicine including the use of Platelet Rich Growth Factors (PRGF) in muscle, bone, tendon, ligament and nerve injuries, this book provides a wide scope of the topic. The volume concludes with chapters from experts in biology, orthopaedics, oral and maxillofacial surgery, where the convergence of expertise is leading to unprecedented insights into how to minutely control the in vivo fate and function of PRGF. This book will provide a useful resource for physicians and researchers interested in learning more about this rapidly growing area of biomedical treatment.

He also belongs to the international team of faculty of the International Society of Arthroscopy, Knee Surgery and Orthopaedic Sports Meidcine (ISAKOS).
Mikel Sanchez, MD is scientific director and medical Unit Arthroscopic Surgery (UCA) of Vithas Hospital San José, Vitoria-Gasteiz. In addition to the UCA, he was the founder of the first unit Biological Therapy (UTB) in Vitoria-Gasteiz.His scientific merits include his pioneering work in the advancement of arthroscopic surgery in Spain and Europe, and being the first physician to understand the therapeutic potential of growth factors in the different diseases of the locomotor system, along with developing protocols for its application in traumatology.
