Plasma Rich Platelet Therapy
What is Plasma Rich Platelet Therapy (PRP)?
We have observed over the years that thin endometrial lining, as measured by transvaginal ultrasound, results in decreased prospects for successful embryonic implantation, while thicker endometrial development results in higher implantation
In Dr Jessup’s infertility practice she offers patients with thin endometrium measurements or recurrent implantation failure the option of having a PRP intrauterine infusion 48 hours prior to an embryo transfer.
There has been much interest in the world literature with respect to the cellular growth benefits which can be induced by introducing the patient's own platelets into tissue areas where regeneration is desired.
Dr Jessup’s offers patients with thin endometrium measurements or recurrent implantation failure the option of having a PRP intrauterine infusion 48 hours prior to an embryo transfer.
This procedure involves taking a blood sample from the patient and after preparation of the specimen, introducing a ml of the PRP back into the patient's endometrial cavity via an embryo transfer catheter. By the day of embryo replacement, the fluid has been completely resorbed and the endometrial lining appears thickened.
