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
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.
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.
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.

Implant Surfaces and their Biological and Clinical Impact
This chapter is a brief overview of commonly used evaluation techniques of the four different surface properties with the emphasis on topographical evaluations.
Photo-induced hydrophilicity enhances initial cell behavior and early bone apposition.
The photo-induced hydrophilic surface used in the current study improves the initial cell reactions and enhances early bone apposition to the implant.
Utilizing micro-computed tomography to evaluate bone structure surrounding dental implants: a comparison with histomorphometry.
Although the technique has its limitations, µCT corresponded well with histomorphometry and should be considered as a tool to evaluate bone structure around implants.
Current knowledge and perspectives for the use of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) in oral and maxillofacial surgery part 1: Periodontal and dentoalveolar surgery.
The current published knowledge about the use of PRP and PRF during tooth avulsion or extraction, mucogingival surgery, Guided Tissue Regeneration (GTR) or bone filling of periodontal intrabony defects, and regeneration of alveolar ridges using Guided Bone regeneration (GBR) are described and discussed in a comprehensive way.
Nanostructures and hydrophilicity influence osseointegration: a biomechanical study in the rabbit tibia.
The strongest bone response was achieved with a combination of wettability and the presence of nanostructures (SLActive), compared with SLA and SLAnano, which were hydrophobic and super-hydrophilic respectively.
