Deep plantar fissures are a common, painful condition, which are often recalcitrant to multiple modalities. Autologous platelet-rich fibrin is a reservoir of supraphysiological concentration of platelets housing various growth factors shown to accelerate wound healing. This unique form factor affords a novel advantage of its ability to be applied over and within these fissures under occlusion. We report the innovative use of disposable syringes to fashion platelet-rich fibrin casts for management of these deeper fissures.
