WHAT IS PLATELET RICH FIBRIN - PRF

  • PRF is a provisional 3-dimensional matrix made of fibrin that accelerates wound healing
  • It contains a number of growth factors found in human blood centrifuged to reach supra-physiological doses that assist in tissue regeneration
  • It significantly decreases the rate of infection up to 10 fold, especially following molar extractions and prior/during implant placement
  • Patients report less morbidity, swelling and use of analgesics following regeneration with PRF
  • In many clinical indications, may be used alone to replace the high costs associated with bone grafts, connective tissue grafts, and/or barrier membranes
  • Improved patient satisfaction

BIOLOGY OF WOUND HEALING

  • Platelet Rich Fibrin intensive course - Advanced PRFT" & injectable-PRFT"
  • Growth factors: biology and physiology, mechanisms of action Advanced PRF: More cytokines and growth factors
  • Composition and influence on tissue healing

BIOLOGY OF PLATELET RICH FIBRIN

  • A-PRF and i-PRF in oral surgery and periodontology
  • Injectable PRF: Liquid PRF that may be injected or combined with biomaterials
  • A-PRF as "matrix" in soft tissue management: protocols, clinical results
  • A-PRF as "matrix" in bone augmentation, protocols, clinical results

CLINICAL INDICATIONS FOR PLATELET RICH FIBRIN - PRF

  • Protocols, clinical results, new perspectives in soft tissue regeneration and bone reconstruction
  • A-PRF & i-PRF with biomaterials: what kind of biomaterials do we have to mix with PRF?

HANDS-ON AND DEMO - PHLEBOTOMY TECHNIQUE

  • In order to maximize the potential of the A-PRFT" and I-PRF blood collection from your patient is necessary.
  • There will be an introductory course in phlebotomy, including a hands-on session.
