Periodontics, Oral Surgery & Implants

The concept of Guided Bone Regeneration (GBR) is quite old and is now covering a large quantity of techniques and combinations of grafting materials and resorbable or nonresorbable membranes. For the treatment of the resorbed posterior mandible, the efficiency of the GBR concept is relatively difficult to fully validate, as…
A recent series of letters were published in JBMR-A1,2 about platelet concentrates for surgical use, where both terminology and content of these materials were hotly debated. The definition and classification of the platelet concentrate products are indeed very important issues, as many misunderstandings are widely spread in the large literature…
What is the Biotechnology Institute? Who are Anitua et al.?First, readers should be aware that Dr. Eduardo Anitua et al. are not independent researchers. The Biotechnology Institute (BTI, Vitoria, Spain) is a dental implant company that manufactures and markets the PRGF®/Endoret® system. Dr. Anitua is the Founder, President and Scientific…
Background: Platelet-rich fibrin (PRF; Choukroun’s technique) is a second-generation platelet concentrate for surgical use. This easy protocol allows the production of leukocyteand platelet-rich fibrin clots and membranes starting from 10-ml blood samples. The purposes of this study were to determine the cell composition and three-dimensional organization of this autologous biomaterial…
Extensive bone grafting remains a delicate procedure, because of the slow and difficult integration of the grafted material into the hysiological architecture. The recent use of platelet concentrates aims to improve this process of integration by accelerating bone and mucosal healing. Choukroun’s platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) is a healing biomaterial that…

In the severely resorbed posterior mandible, the placement of dental implants in ideal position is often compromised by the significant post-extraction centrifuge alveolar bone resorption. The shape of the residual alveolar ridges and the residual bone height above the inferior alveolar nerve often make the area not suitable for direct…
Abstract: Platelet concentrates for surgical use are innovative tools of regenerative medicine, and were widely tested in oral and maxillofacial surgery. Unfortunately, the literature on the topic is contradictory and the published data are difficult to sort and interpret. In bone graft, implant and reconstructive surgery, the literature is particularly…
