These diseases adversely affect quality of life of the patient at the time the only cure is the use of Alloderm to rebuild the turbinates.
A new regenerative medicine technique allows a reconstruction of the turbinates with PRP (platelet rich plasma).
The PRP contains high concentrations in the platelet growth factors, substances that stimulate the regeneration of tissues: under their effect is stimulated the growth of the mucosa.
The technique involves taking a sample of blood from the patient (usually all persons who because of hypertrophy of the turbinates were subjected to turbinectomy): then the blood collected is filtered, centrifuged up to reach the proper concentration and then is injected in the vicinity of what remains of the turbinates.
The reconstruction of the turbinates with PRP need for a cycle of one injection every 3 month in the first year and then one injection / year (every injection costs 600 Euros).
All the PRP treatment of empty nose syndrome injections do not require hospitalization.
