Platelet Rich Plasma and Abdominal Strains



Cliff Lee from the Seattle Mariners was recently treated with PRP for an abdominal strain.  This is a novel but potential valuable application for platelet rich plasma. Presently, there is no data to suggest it may work for this problem.  Basic science and preclinical work, however, suggest it may be helpful. 

I must applaud the doctors who made this choice because if it does help Mr. Lee return to the mound without surgery they will have helped many other athletes and physicians.  I would recommend, however, this case be documented in the medical literature so we all can follow the specifics.

As new potential applications arise, we must be aware of the value created by the researchers, physicians and patients who make that initial decision to try something that no one else has done.

The effects are gradual and the result will vary for each user.(vimax pills) However, further review show that most users experience benefits within the first week. In the first month you can expect erections that stay longer than usual and your penile may even start to become wider. penis enlargement pills - http://www.cucumaerot.com
