COURSE DESCRIPTION: October 1st & 2nd, 2016, Course Program (A-PRF & I-PRF), Tampa, Florida
1. The use of platelet concentrates has had a long-history of use in various fields of medicine as an autologous source of growth factors fabricated utilizing centrifugation of blood under various conditions. While platelet rich plasma (PRP) was proposed as a first generation platelet concentrate over 3 decades ago, over the past 10 years, platelet rich fibrin (PRF) has seen a steady increase in utilization for a variety of medical procedures due to its lack of anti-coagulation factors favoring fibrin clot formation and faster wound healing processes. More recently, further research has demonstrated that shorter and slower centrifugation spin cycles (now termed advanced-PRF; A-PRF and A-PRF+) additionally favors wound healing by incorporating higher populations of white blood cells and progenitor cells within the PRF fibrin matrix leading to higher growth factor release and tissue regeneration within its local micro-environment. Parallel to these findings, the development of a liquid injectable PRF (I-PRF) provides a new formulation of liquid PRF without using anti-coagulation factors that may specifically be combined with currently available biomaterials such as bone grafting particles favoring particle stability and tissue integration. This course aims to highlight the recent advancements made with respect to the newest formulations of platelet concentrates inlcuding A-PRF+ and I-PRF+. Furthermore, we systematically highlight when, where and why specific platelet concentrates may be utilized to further speed wound healing and tissue regeneration for various clinical indications faced in routine daily clinical practice. Learn how to use A-PRF and i-PRF in multiple ways.
