Platelet Rich Fibrin (L-PRF) Protocol

Description:
Platelet Rich Fibrin (L-PRF) is an autologous fibrin membrane made by spinning down whole blood and harvesting the platelet and leukocyte containing fibrin fraction. Dr. Maurice Salama’s assistant, Charlene Bennett, will elaborate in detail describing the step-by step PRF preparation and how it can be utilized clinically.

I need some clarity on using PRF membranes for grafting.

After grafting the deficient site with bone, is the next layer over the bone a resorbable or non resorbable membrane AND then the PRF membrane? Or is the the bone, then PRF membrane, and then resorbable or non resorbable?

Any help here would be appreciated!

Dr. Salama.. What is the difference between L-PRF, A-PRF AND I-PRF ? Thanks

Brian; Thanks for being with us in Dallas. Your view is a correct one. There are presentations on this website from both the founders of PRF and PRGF if you want more information about both protocols. Additionally, there are workshops and specific lectures on these topics on this site. Here is one that compares all systems. See link below. regards Dr. Salama http://www.dentalxp.com/Search.aspx?q=PRF

I just completed the course in Dallas with Dr. Salama. I'm in the process of getting this integrated into my office. After watching both the PRGF and the PRF videos, the PRF seems much simpler to implement in the office. Is there a great benefit to the PRGF over the PRF? From what I see, with the PRF you still get your membrane slug, and liquid for mixing with bone.

I just attended a workshop in Orlando where they did not cut the fibrin from the rest of the red clot....they simply brushed it off which left just a little red and gave a slightly larger membrane. Thanks for the presentation!!! Also, it was exciting to see how this is being used to help heal ulcers for diabetics etc.

i would like to inquire about the exact centrifugal force for L-PRF synthesis. in most papers it recommend about 400G however, if i'm not mistaken the process centrifuge in this video is close to the hettich EBA model and taking in prespective of the rotor radius and the 3000 rpm in the demo the centrifugal force is far from 400G. i would like to know if my hypothesis is right or not. thanks

Edward, A-PRF will give you more cells than PRF or L-PRF. definitely the presence of these white cells will improve the vasculrization.(synergy of the granulocytes and monocytes). White cells also produce BMP's..
Another interesting observation: the fibrin is less dense and indeed the cell penetration through the fibrin network is faster.. and then the tissue building is faster. Dr Choukroun

Charlene. Thanks so much. Seems like a very easy system. I am debating between this and prgf. seems leukocytes are a good thing? How long between drawing blood and spinning. Intralock reps say 1 minute so if drawing 4-8 tubes do you spin for 1 minute first tubes and then spin rest so no coagulation. There are several centrifuges out there for this including Intralock, Dowel and Dr. C himself thru Blusky? Any difference. Also a newer A-prf protocol? is this different. thanks.

Hi, how warm the oven has to be? Also where can I buy these system? Thanks

How to Give a Painless Palatal Injection
Most patients are extremely anxious about any form of dental treatment however once they are in the chair and they have had the local anaesthetic administered they generally relax into the treatment. One of the reasons for this is the anxiety related to the local anaesthesia. One of the most painful injections is the palatal injections. There area number of devices out there that purport to give a painless palatal injection (PPI). In this short video we demonstrate a technique that shows how to give a PPI without any special instrumentation except time and patience. This is something that is quick to learn and a phenomenal practice builder.

The Socket-Shield Technique: First Histological, Clinical, and Volumetrical Observations after Separation of the Buccal Tooth Segment – A Pilot Study
The “socket-shield technique” has shown its potential in preserving buccal tissues. However, front teeth often have to be extracted due to vertical fractures in buccolingual direction. It has not yet been investigated if the socket-shield technique can only be used with intact roots or also works with a modified shield design referring to vertical fracture lines. The aim of this study was to assess histologically, clinically, and volumetrically the effect of separating the remaining buccal root segment in two pieces before immediate implant placement.

A Technique for Surgical Mandibular Exostosis Removal
Exostosis, a slow-growing, benign bony outgrowth, is a common clinical finding and not usually an issue with patients. However, when removable prosthetics must sit either adjacent to or over these areas, pressure, food abrasion, ulceration, or limited tongue space can occur. This article describes a surgical technique for exdsion of exostosis through the presentation of a case. An 86-year-old woman had soft-tissue irritation caused by abrasion from food in the buccal posterior right quadrant. The…
