Does the Application of Platelet-Rich Fibrin in Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction Enhance Graft Healing and Maturation? A Comparative MRI Study of 44 Cases

The publication concludes that the application of autologous Vivostat PRF led to superior graft integration and maturation in the proximal third of the ACL graft. There was no significant difference in MRI signal intensity in the midbody or distal tibial graft. Application of autologous Vivostat PRF also resulted in significantly lower rates of postoperative hemarthrosis that needed to be aspirated.

Major milestone as Mr McDermott tops his 250th Vivostat PRF case at London Bridge Hospital

Mr Ian McDermott, has passed yet another major milestone at London Bridge Hospital, having now done over 250 cases where Vivostat PRF® autologous platelet-rich fibrin glue has been used in knee surgery.
