PRGF-Endoret Protocol (Platelet Rich in Growth Factors)

Description:
PRGF®-Endoret Technology is based on the activation of the patient's own platelets for the stimulation and acceleration of tissue healing and regeneration. It is a technology that allows the use of the organism's own resources with extraordinary results in many pathologies, effectively regenerating tissues without side effects and notably reducing the recovery period of fractures, muscular and tendinous injuries, and surgical interventions. Dr. Maurice Salama’s assistant, Charlene Bennett, will elaborate in detail describing the step-by step PRGF preparation and how it can be utilized clinically.

I wanted to clarify something. It was mention in this blog that leucocytes can be obtained with the PRF and can not be obtain with the PRGF. The statement is not accurate. With the PRGF system leucocytes can be obtain as well. It was just decided not to use them due to some possible side effects. We could use them if we wanted.

I have been using the PRGF for over 14 years now. The PRGF protocol has been evolved through out the years. I wanted share that the most current protocol is way simpler. Let's start with the Pipets. For many years it was for me kind of a hassle, first, to know when to use the different pipets, second to adjust the quantity on the pipets and finally, and the biggest disadvantage it was to clean the pipets after every patient. The solution with the new protocol is by using a devise that plugs directly to the white empty tube and that will suction the plasma directly in to the tube and the beauty is that is disposable. Because the protocolo has change from dividing the plasma portion in 4 to just 2 portions (The rich in GF and the poor in GF for the fibrin) we don't have to measure anything anymore. It is just half poor half rich. What might seem complicated or confusing in this video is actually the benefit of this system in comparison to the PRF. PRGF is more versatile because it can be mixed with any type of grafting material creating a perfect scaffold to manipulate your grafting procedures. No more particles all over the place. Also you can use the PRGF to bio-activate the surface of the implant for example or even use it to fill up the osteotomy. Concluding with my comment I would like to say that is is wonderful that there are many protocols out there to improve the performance and outcome of our surgeries. PRGF is a versatile one that accommodate to the needs of our department.

Larry these are two different preparations by two different concepts. PRF which includes leukocytes and PRGF which does not. the one you first described was PRF and its more user friendly. PRGF preparation according to company instructions (BTI) needs activator to be added which is CaCl and its about 0.5ml per 1ml centrifuged plasma. and thrombin as an anticoagulant is prefilled in the tubes so there is no need to add it.in case if you want to prepare fibrin layer by PRGF system there is no need to add activator. tnx for you question Dr Moghaddas

Hello,
So I was at the soft tissue course last weekend and saw this system, but was a little confused in how to use it when compared to what I had been exposed to in the past. Unfortunately after seeing the video I still have some questions - not about what's in the video but the concepts.
First, I have been shown and I have seen other video's that take a fibrin clot in a red tube spun down, pulled out of the tube and cut off the red cells. Then squeeze out most of the plasma in a sterile 2x2 to make a membrane, plug or whatever. I've seen it done just by hand, and other companies have trays to roll out the membrane, or make a plug, etc. No CaCl, thrombin or oven's. Can you help me sort this out.
Also, in the video there seems to be so many fractions and tubes. Is this necessary, a preference or ??? The BTI kit doesn't seem to include the pipetes, extra tubes, etc so is it absolutely necessary or an option. And how do we find out the ratio's/quantities of CaCl and/or thrombin to use, etc.
Thanks for helping me out on this. I really want to do it top drawer but just having a hard time sorting it out.
Larry Burt

Great job!

mitra mahboob - (9/16/2013 3:27 AM)

Thanks for your great presentation.I don,t understand how the Plasma converted to Fibrin ,because in Hematology generally the Plasma with calcium cholorid convert to fibrin and coaggulate when added a Thrompoblastin agent. My question is do you use other agent that doesn,t mention in movie ?Please tell me tehe answer.thanks .

David Rizk - (8/27/2013 12:50 AM)

Were do we order these supplies from and what are they named or cataloged as. Im a little confused as to what the different layers that you remove from the tube are ? Are you removing these layers from the same yellow colored liquid that is above the red liquid which I assume are the red cells. Maybe you can identify what these layers represent. I have also seen this done centrifuging for 12 mins and the fibrin clot is removed intact from the vial instead of using an oven. How does this differ from your protocol. Dr Rizk

Maurice Salama - (8/21/2013 6:58 AM)

Feng; Is that all you focused upon? It was a depmonstration on the protocol for procuring PRGF. Any relevant questions related to the protocol? Dr. Salama

Socket Shield; What Do We Know, What´s New? Premium Member Content

Socket Shield; What Do We Know, What´s New?
The Socket Shield technique is a “new” procedure with 10 years of documented successful cases worldwide. Lately we have done some new proposals like the way we extract the lingual slice, the relation of the shield level to the bone, the use of miniflaps, the distance between implant and shield just to mention some. On the other hand, the only minor “problem” with this technique is the “external shield exposure” and here I propose the method of successful treatment. We will see the convenience of applying SS to molars also on the light of the paper of Dr. Mataraso from 2009. The molar SS is a viable alternative rather than ridge preservation techniques.

Non-Surgical Periodontal Therapy: Decision Making in the 21st Century
Non-surgical periodontal therapy is a vital part of everyday dental practice. Since the majority of periodontal therapy is performed by general dentists and dental hygienists, it is critical that clinicians have all of the requisite skills and information needed to perform these services at the highest level possible. The purpose of this presentation is to provide the latest evidence- and practice- based information on periodontal debridement and adjunctive therapies that can improve patient outcomes. Though surgical procedures may still need to be performed in some sites, the majority of inflammatory periodontal disease can be eliminated or reduced significantly using the techniques and protocols discussed in this educational segment on non-surgical periodontal therapy.

Does residual cement around implant-supported restorations cause peri-implant disease? A retrospective case analysis
The purpose of this study was to determine the relationship between patients with a history of periodontitis and development of cement-related peri-implant disease. Seventy-seven patients with 129 implants for this retrospective analysis were selected from completed implant cases that were scheduled for regular maintenance or had experienced mechanical or biological complications between years 2006 and 2011 in private practice. Implants with extracoronal residual cement and implants without cement remnants were analyzed.

The Socket-Shield Technique to Support the Buccofacial Tissues at Immediate Implant Placement

The Socket-Shield Technique to Support the Buccofacial Tissues at Immediate Implant Placement
Tooth loss and subsequent ridge collapse continue to burden restorative implant treatment. Careful management of the post-extraction tissues is needed to preserve the alveolar ridge. In-lieu of surgical augmentation to correct a ridge defect, the socket-shield technique offers a promising solution. As the root submergence technique retains the periodontal attachment and maintains the alveolar ridge for pontic site development, this case report demonstrates the hypothesis that retention of a prepared tooth root section as a socket-shield prevents the recession of tissues buccofacial to an immediately placed implant. The socket-shield technique is a highly promising addition to clinical implant dentistry and this case report is among the first to demonstrate the procedure in clinical practice with a 1-year follow up.
