Chylothorax is by definition a collection of lymphatic fluids in the pleural cavity because of leakage from main thoracic duct or its tributaries. It is an uncommon but serious postoperative complicat...
The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) and plasma rich in growth factors (PRGF) on peripheral nerve injury in the early period of healing.
To assess long-term efficacy and safety of self-made cryopreservative fibrin glue (SMC) applied in pterygium surgery.
Basic science studies suggest that platelet-rich therapies have a positive effect on tendon repair. However, the clinical evidence is conflicted on whether this translates to increased tendon healing ...
Does Intra-Alveolar Application of Chlorhexidine Gel in Combination With Platelet-Rich Fibrin Have an Advantage Over Application of Platelet-Rich Fibrin in Decreasing Alveolar Osteitis After Mandibular Third Molar Surgery? A Double-Blinded Randomized Clinical Trial.
To evaluate the effectiveness of chlorhexidine (CHX) gel and platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) compared with PRF alone in preventing the development of alveolar osteitis (AO).
Autologous platelet rich fibrin matrix will release growth factors which could increase the production of dermal proteins or affect the vascularity and status of neighboring tissues. This ...
Background: To compare the effectiveness of open flap debridement (OFD) alone and OFD along with either Autologous Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF) or Titanium Platelet Rich Fibrin (TPRF) in the...
Melasma is a common acquired disorder characterized by symmetric, hyperpigmented patches with an irregular outline, occurring most commonly on the face. The therapy for melasma has always ...
This research will be conducted in an attempt to achieve complete root coverage with physiologic probing depth and a harmonious view with the adjacent tissues using Platelet rich fibrin in...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the bone regeneration after impacted third molar surgery on split mouth design using platelet-rich fibrin.
A preparation consisting of PLATELETS concentrated in a limited volume of PLASMA. This is used in various surgical tissue regeneration procedures where the GROWTH FACTORS in the platelets enhance wound healing and regeneration.
The preparation of platelet concentrates with the return of red cells and platelet-poor plasma to the donor.
A fibrin-stabilizing plasma enzyme (TRANSGLUTAMINASES) that is activated by THROMBIN and CALCIUM to form FACTOR XIIIA. It is important for stabilizing the formation of the fibrin polymer (clot) which culminates the coagulation cascade.
Retraction of a clot resulting from contraction of PLATELET pseudopods attached to FIBRIN strands. The retraction is dependent on the contractile protein thrombosthenin. Clot retraction is used as a measure of platelet function.
The time required for the appearance of FIBRIN strands following the mixing of PLASMA with phospholipid platelet substitute (e.g., crude cephalins, soybean phosphatides). It is a test of the intrinsic pathway (factors VIII, IX, XI, and XII) and the common pathway (fibrinogen, prothrombin, factors V and X) of BLOOD COAGULATION. It is used as a screening test and to monitor HEPARIN therapy.
Blood is a specialized bodily fluid that delivers necessary substances to the body's cells (in animals) – such as nutrients and oxygen – and transports waste products away from those same cells. In vertebrates, it is composed of blo...
Complementary and Alternative Medicine
Alternative medicine are whole medical systems that did not fit with conventional medicine as they have completely different philosophies and ideas on the causes of disease, methods of diagnosis and approaches to treatment. Although often overlapping, co...
