this scaffold is widely used for tissue engineering for cell culture, cell transfer media. Results of hair transplant are much faster and better. We have done research on this. This work was presented in annual congress of the international society of hair restoration surgery at Prague and also in 2016 at Chicago.
There is a time leg between extraction of hair follicles and implantation of follicles. During this period grafts suffer ischemia. During this period hair follicles are kept in a solution which is called Graft holding solution. Most commonly normal saline is used for this.
At Rejuvenate hair transplant centre extensive research was done on plasma. The study proved that plasma is much superior graft holding solution and even up to 72 hrs the graft in plasma will remain viable. This study was presented at the international conference and the research paper has been published on this. For better results of hair transplant, the hair follicles should be kept in platelet-rich-plasma. The platelets derived growth factors stimulate hair growth. Fibrinogen of plasma gets converted into fibrin. This fibrin forms a 3D scaffold around hair follicle and plasma provides various nutrients to follicles. This 3D scaffold is widely used for tissue engineering for cell culture, cell transfer media. Results of hair transplant are much faster and better.
