The SELPHYL® System is designed to be used for the safe and rapid preparation of autologous platelet-rich-plasma (PRP) from a small sample of blood at the patient point of care. The PRP is mixed with autograft and/or allograft bone prior to application to a bony defect for improving handling characteristics.
HOW SELPHYL® WORKS
The SELPHYL® System is available exclusively through qualified healthcare practitioners for the safe and rapid collection of autologous PRP, using a small amount of your own blood.
How long does the procedure take?
The entire procedure takes about 30 minutes to perform in your doctor’s office.
How many treatments are needed?
The number of treatments needed depends on each individual patient, the desired outcome, and your doctor’s treatment plan. As a stand-alone therapy, many physicians recommend a series of one to three injection sessions spaced from four to six weeks apart for optimal results.
Is the treatment painful?
Unlike other products that are acidic (low pH), SELPHYL® has close to physiologic pH. There may be some temporary discomfort during the injections, and occasional redness and bruising immediately following the treatment that resolves quickly.
Are there any side effects?
There have been no known side effects reported to date. Some patients may experience some mild irritation, swelling, bruising, itching, discoloration or tenderness at the injection sites. These are temporary conditions and typically resolve within two days.
How long does it last?
The longevity of the results of SELPHYL® treatments vary based on the extent of the procedure, areas treated, and number of sessions.
Can anyone be allergic to SELPHYL®?
There is virtually no risk of allergic reaction and no allergic reactions have been reported to date. The SELPHYL® System is used to rapidly collect and isolate a patient’s own PRP for injection and contains no animal or synthetic products.
