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 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

Maurice Salama - (5/2/2014 6:50 PM)

Abdusalam; Yes, there are differences in the two protocols and procedures between PRGF and PRF. Look for the presentations on DentalXP by Drs. Anitua (PRGF) and Dr. Choukroun (PRF) to learn more. Dr. Salama

ABDUSALAM ALEMALI - (5/2/2014 12:03 PM)

thank u Dr. Salama on this summary my question is there a difference between PRF and PRGF in preparation protocol. thank you again

Maurice Salama - (1/30/2014 8:14 AM)

Kevin; I utilize the PRF always after being compressed in the box. Thanks Dr. Salama

kevin potocsky - (1/29/2014 11:17 AM)

dr. salama for sandwich prf around a collagen membrane over a bone graft, do you use the prf right after centrifuge, a little thicker, or do you use the prf after compressed in the box, thinner?

Tissue Engineering and Platelet Derived Growth Factors: Evidence Based Therapy
Platelet derived growth factors are now routinely utilized in reconstructive therapy. This presentation describes very detailed and evidence based guidelines for clinicians interested in enhancing their abilities in tissue engineering, especially as it relates to bone augmentation. Specifically, while successful bone augmentation requires the standard surgical parameters of space maintenance, low pressure on the grafts and tension-free flap closure, optimization of this goal requires management and enhancement of the local biological conditions with growth factors. Towards that end, platelet concentrates through the constant release of growth factors are able to promote and enhance new vascularization, provide plasma protein, normal lipidemia, as well as increased collagen and fibrin activity.

Mastering Surgical Principles: Key to Constant Success
Clinical success depends on material and technique selection, but no material or technique will succeed if surgical principles are not respected. Attention to detail is imperative and mastering surgical principles is key to constant success. This course aims to review principles of flap design and elevation, as well as degranulation, debridement, suturing and wound stabilization of the most commonly performed periodontal, implant and advanced bone grafting procedures. Pharmacologic protocols and anesthesia will also be discussed.

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…

Mucosal Coronally Positioned Flap for the Management of Excessive Gingival Display in the Presence of Hypermobility of the Upper Lip and Vertical Maxillary Excess: A Case Report

Mucosal Coronally Positioned Flap for the Management of Excessive Gingival Display in the Presence of Hypermobility of the Upper Lip and Vertical Maxillary Excess: A Case Report
Excessive gingival display is a frequent finding that can occur because of various intraoral or extraoral etiologies. This report describes the use of a mucosal coronally positioned flap for the management of a gummy smile associated with vertical maxillary excess and hypermobility of the upper lip. For patients desiring a less invasive alternative to orthognathic surgery, the mucosal coronally positioned flap is a viable alternative. We demonstrate short-term successful use of this technique for the management of excessive gingival display in the presence of slight vertical maxillary excess and hypermobility of the upper lip. Long-term follow-up studies are needed to determine stability of the results.

Surgical and Orthodontic Management of Impacted Maxillary Canines
Although the mechanical management of impacted teeth is a routine task for most orthodontists, certain impactions can be frustrating, and the esthetic outcome can be unpredictable if the surgeon uncovers the impacted tooth improperly. When referring a patient to have an impacted toothuncovered,theorthodontist might assume incorrectly that the surgeon knows which surgical procedure to use. However, if not instructed properly, the surgeon could select an inappropriate technique, leaving the orthodontist with…
