Implant success, survival, and failure: the International Congress of Oral Implantologists (ICOI) Pisa Consensus Conference.
TLDR
A few indices developed for natural teeth are used as an index that is specific for endosteal root-form implants, intended to update and upgrade what is purported to be implant success, implant survival, and implant failure. Expand
Slow release of growth factors and thrombospondin-1 in Choukroun's platelet-rich fibrin (PRF): a gold standard to achieve for all surgical platelet concentrates technologies
TLDR
Choukroun's platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) is a second generation platelet concentrate that releases high quantities of three main growth factors, including TGFβ-1, platelet derived growth factor AB, PDGF-AB and an important coagulation matricellular glycoprotein during 7 days. Expand
Oral tuberculosis: a clinical evaluation of 42 cases.
TLDR
Oro-facial tuberculosis is often difficult to diagnose and it should be an important consideration in the differential diagnosis of lesions that appear in the oral cavity, as well as acid-fast stains, culture, and immunological assays, and skin testing. Expand
In search of a consensus terminology in the field of platelet concentrates for surgical use: platelet-rich plasma (PRP), platelet-rich fibrin (PRF), fibrin gel polymerization and leukocytes.
TLDR
A panel of experts discusses this issue and proposes an accurate and simple terminology system for platelet concentrates for surgical use and pleads for a more serious characterization of these products. Expand
Do the fibrin architecture and leukocyte content influence the growth factor release of platelet concentrates? An evidence-based answer comparing a pure platelet-rich plasma (P-PRP) gel and a
TLDR
This simple demonstration shows that the polymerization and final architecture of the fibrin matrix considerably influence the strength and the growth factor trapping/release potential of the membrane and suggests that the leukocyte populations have a strong influence on the release of some growth factors, particularly TGFβ1. Expand
Current knowledge and perspectives for the use of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) in oral and maxillofacial surgery part 2: Bone graft, implant and reconstructive surgery.
TLDR
The use of L-PRF allowed to define a new therapeutic concept called the Natural Bone Regeneration (NBR) for the reconstruction of the alveolar ridges at the gingival and bone levels, and push away some technical limits of global implant-supported rehabilitations. Expand
The Relevance of Choukroun's Platelet-Rich Fibrin and Metronidazole During Complex Maxillary Rehabilitations Using Bone Allograft. Part II: Implant Surgery, Prosthodontics, and Survival
TLDR
The number of implants used per maxillary rehabilitation was always higher with simple screw implants than with microthreaded implants, the latter presenting a stronger initial implant stability, and PRF membranes are particularly helpful for periosteum healing and maturation during complex implant rehabilitations. Expand
Perceived Job Insecurity and Depressive Symptoms among Italian Dentists: The Moderating Role of Fear of COVID-19
TLDR
The results indicated that both perceived job insecurity and fear of COVID-19 were positively associated with depressive symptoms, and that the effect of perceivedJob insecurity on depressive symptoms was weaker among those with a lowFear of CO VID-19, may inform public health policies for dentists in relation to reducing the risk of developing negative mental health outcomes. Expand
Shedding light in the controversial terminology for platelet-rich products: platelet-rich plasma (PRP), platelet-rich fibrin (PRF), platelet-leukocyte gel (PLG), preparation rich in growth factors
TLDR
A recent series of letters were published in JBMR-A about platelet concentrates for surgical use, where both terminology and content of these materials were hotly debated and a consensus should be found to solve this issue once for good. Expand
Simultaneous Sinus-Lift and Implantation Using Microthreaded Implants and Leukocyte- and Platelet-Rich Fibrin as Sole Grafting Material: A Six-Year Experience
TLDR
The use of L-PRF as sole filling material during simultaneous sinus-lift and implantation seems to be a reliable surgical option promoting natural bone regeneration. Expand
