Alveolar Ridge Augmentation using the Allograft Bone Shell Technique
The loss of teeth, whether it is from trauma
or pathology, is accompanied by a concomitant loss of the
surrounding alveolar bone.
The effect of preparation method on the fibrin diameter of leukocyte- and platelet-rich fibrin (L-PRF)
The use of leukocyte and platelet- rich fibrin (L-PRF) in regenerative surgery has increased exponentially in the last decade. That success has lead various centres to have introduced the biomaterial as a routine inclusion in oral grafting procedures.
The in vitro effect of leukocyte- and platelet-rich fibrin (L-PRF) and cross-linked hyaluronic acid on fibroblast viability and proliferation
Leukocyte- and platelet-rich fibrin (L-PRF), an autologous derived platelet and leukocyte concentrate, was first introduced by Choukroun et al. in 2001 and is currently used for several oral and maxillofacial procedures.
