Algorithm and Software System for Treatment Application of Platelet-Rich Plasma on Problematic Skin Wounds


Recently a big interest arises to the automated diagnosis and digitalization of clinical data. The purpose of this article is to present treatment algorithm and software system for Problematic Skin Wounds (PSW) by using Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP), based on the first study on platelet-rich plasma application carried out in Bulgaria. PSW-PRP-Project software system was developed for entering and processing medical data during PRP treatment, visualization of general patient information, treatment trend, as well as a module for training specialists through the created database. For a period of seven years around 100 patients have been treatment at the Department of Orthopaedics and Traumatology, UMBAL KANEV Ruse AD, by applying platelet-rich plasma. The algorithm for the use of platelet-rich plasma for treating problematic skin wounds allows for the proper and accurate treatment of patients with various problematic skin wounds with the purpose of solving the therapeutic problem and their complete recovery. The procedure’s course is determined based on assessment on three digital criteria TWS, TAS and TSWD. The algorithms are based on our results, obtained for the first in Bulgaria while treating problematic skin wounds by using platelet-rich plasma and successfully treating 92.78% of patients to full recovery.
