Dr. Rahul Rana [2] | Dr J.L Kumawat | Dr Mit Patel | Dr Dixit Mithwani

Abstract: This comparative prospective study investigates the efficacy of autologous platelet-rich plasma (PRP) in the treatment of diabetic foot ulcers. Conducted at Geetanjali Medical College and Hospital, Udaipur, India, the study involved 50 patients divided into two groups: one treated with PRP and the other with conventional dressing. PRP, rich in growth factors, is known to accelerate tissue repair and inhibit keloid and scar tissue growth. The study found that PRP dressing significantly improved wound contraction and healing rates in diabetic foot ulcer patients compared to conventional dressing. Therefore, PRP can be considered an effective adjunct to conventional dressings and debridement for diabetic wounds.
