Abstract

This is the protocol for a review and there is no abstract. The objectives are as follows:

To determine the efficacy and safety of autologous PRP compared to placebo, standard treatment, and  alternative treatments such as plasma poor in platelets, laser (common in plastic surgery) or biomaterials (e.g. acellular xenogeneic dermal matrix or Keratinocyte suspension; Appendix 1), for surgical wounds.
