BMP, PRP, PRGF and PRF; At the Edge of Regenerative Surgery

Description:
Biological modifiers and growth factors are substances that the body produces naturally in response to injury or disease. The use of these substances in regenerative procedures has made hard and soft tissue regeneration more predictable while accelerating healing and decreasing patient morbidity. This webinar will review the wound healing process and the role that growth factors play in regeneration. BMP, PRP, PRF and PRGF will be reviewed and their clinical applications will be demonstrated. At the end of this webinar the participant will have a good understanding of the differences between these biological modifiers and their benefits.

Avi Thank you for great baseline and detailed information. Just started using the new PRGF system recently. Seems simplified but I'm getting only two layers (less concentrated and the enriched one for PRGF for bone graft etc) Could you share your thoughts please on what layer to use for : 1) Implant placement 2) Membrane and 3) On the sutures

Will miss you in Atlanta (will be in Chicago) Enjoy your trip this week Hugh

Thank you Dr Schetritt for a very interesting presentation. I salute you also as we share a common past as graduates of McGill University, in Montreal, Canada. I have several concerns regarding your presentation, but I will address only some. And I respectfully would like to say ... Firstly, your presentation, I noticed, as you have mentioned at the very beginning, has been sponsored by BTI, which is basically synonymous with Dr Edouardo Anitua's PRGF, its founder. And, your presentation, to which therefore I am not surprised, concludes with PRGF, in a very elaborate fashion, about the various uses and benefits of PRGF, be it in soft or hard tissue regenerative procedures. You also mentioned that PRGF, as opposed to Choukroun's PRF, does NOT contain leukocytes, because dr Anitua's research has shown that leukocytes are not advantageous, but rather potentially destructive, to the regenerative process. My comment to this statement is that this finding has not been confirmed by any other research group except for Dr Anitua's lab. Also, you have failed to mention that the literature, conducted by independent researchers, is very conclusive about the benefits of leukocytes in Choukroun's PRF as they are responsable for the CONTINUOUS release of growth factors for at least a period of 7 days post-operatively in the surgical site, in addition to the initial platelet contribution ... this is a property of Choukroun's PRF that is unique, whereas PRGF can only release platelet growth factors for a very very short period of time after surgery, a matter of only minutes. I would think that Choukroun's PRF has a huge advantage! Also, you have not mentioned that the process of acquiring and delivering PRGF is very cumbersome and laborious and subject to error, whereas the same process with Choukroun's PRF is extremely user friendly. You also fail to talk about the benefits of Choukroun's PRF in bone regenerative procedures, and you talk about only how you use it in root coverage procedures in combination with acellular dermis in a tunnel flap procedure. By the way, your technique is nothing new, I have likewise been using this same technique very successfuly for several years using Alloderm and Choukroun's PRF,and, as well, and similarly, Dr Pat E. Allen, one of my mentors, has been using this same technique very successfully with PRP. Choukroun's PRF, in all fairness, is very successful with both soft and hard tissue regenerative procedures. It is not fair to the novices out here listening to this presentation on the wonderful theme of growth factor technologies, to try to hype in a very subtle fashion a product that is scientifically not necessarily superior. And with regards to the question that has been raised on this forum about Choukroun's A-PRF ... I highly doubt that this can be answered at this time in a very intelligent manner, because it is a very recent development, so let us give the research arena a chance to explore it first before we try to judge it wrecklessly. To all my scientifically inclined colleagues ... I wish you well. And to Dr Schetritt, I thank you for the very stimulating presentation, and the time you have taken to do this.

Hi Avi Thanks for a great lecture very informative. One question: which do you prefer prgf or prf and why? And what do you think of the A-PRF is it really different to PRF or is is just sales hype. I look forward to your comments

Ridge Split Procedure with Simultaneous Implant Placement Premium Member Content

Ridge Split Procedure with Simultaneous Implant Placement
A ridge split procedure has been suggested in literature for increasing the bucco-lingual width of the alveolar ridge prior to implant placement. The procedure can be performed in one or two surgical appointments. It is usually combined with additional augmentation utilizing a bone substitute material and a collagen membrane. In this video Dr Kher demonstrates a ridge split procedure that has been facilitated using a piezo surgical device. Following that he places 2 implants for the proposed restoration of a missing maxillary canine and first bicuspid after preparing the ossteotomy site using expansion screws. Thereafter he uses a CPS putty to graft the gap between the implants to fill all voids and achieves a satisfactory tension free closure.

Advanced Bone Grafting Techniques: Part 1 - Autogenous Bone Blocks in the Reconstruction of the Atrophic Mandibular Ridge Premium Member Content

Advanced Bone Grafting Techniques: Part 1 - Autogenous Bone Blocks in the Reconstruction of the Atrophic Mandibular Ridge
This lecture will describe the use of autologous onlay block bone grafting for reconstruction of moderate to severe atrophic posterior mandibular alveolar ridge. This will include a discussion of the various options to this form of grafting, such as Short implants, Lingual positioning, nerve re-positioning, distraction osteogenesis, and GBR. The Mutli-Tier onlay Bone Graft Technique will be highlighted in this presentation. Additionally, a review of a recently submitted research paper of long term follow up of implants placed into autologous bone blocks harvested from the mandibular ramus, retromolar and sympheseal areas will be discussed. A description of surgical donor harvest sites in the mandible will also be performed as well as post op healing of these sites. Additional time will be spent reviewing causes of failure with bone blocks and implants placed into these sites.

Atrophic Posterior Maxillan and Mandible: Alveolar Ridge Reconstruction with Mandibular Block Autografts

Atrophic Posterior Maxillan and Mandible: Alveolar Ridge Reconstruction with Mandibular Block Autografts
Autogenous bone grafts have been used for many years for alveolar ridge augmentation and are still considered to be the gold standard for jaw reconstruction. The use of these grafts with osseointegrated implants was originally discussed by Brånemark et al., who used the iliac crest as the donor site. For repair of most localized alveolar defects, however, bone grafts from the mandible offer advantages over iliac crest grafts. These include the proximity of donor and recipient sites, convenient surgical access, decreased donor site morbidity and decreased cost. This article focuses on posterior maxillary and mandibular osseous augmentation in a staged approach for implant placement. Both horizontal and vertical deficiencies are addressed with the use of symphysis and ramus buccal shelf donor block bone via case presentations.

The use of guided tissue regeneration (GTR) procedures for the treatment of gingival recession has shown encouraging results and is gaining clinical acceptance. However, attaining space maintenance beneath the membrane remains a problem for clinicians. Hence, the purpose of this pilot case study was to evaluate the effect of adjunctive demineralized freeze-dried bone allograft (DFDBA) placement during collagen membrane GTR-based root coverage procedures.
