Introducing Choukroun’s Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF) to the Reconstructive Surgery Milieu
Platelet-rich fibrin (PRF), developed in France
by Choukroun et al (2001), is a second generation
platelet concentrate widely used to
accelerate soft and hard tissue healing. Its advantages
over the better known platelet-rich plasma
(PRP) include ease of preparation/application, minimal
expense, and lack of biochemical modification
(no bovine thrombin or anticoagulant is required).
PRF is a strictly autologous fibrin matrix containing
a large quantity of platelet and leukocyte cytokines.
This article serves as an introduction to the PRF
“concept” and its potential clinical applications.
