CA #: 1.5-5933-21099 CE Code: PAFTGB21 Objectives: Optimization of protocols for any centrifugation device Update on Bio-Heat technology and the ability to extend the working properties of PRF from 2-3 weeks to 4-6 months Launch of the Bio-Cool technology New uses of PRF in Periodontology and Facial Esthetics 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. Over the past 10 years, platelet rich fibrin (PRF) has been a steady increase in utilization for a variety of medial procedures due to its lack of anti-coagulation factors favoring fibrin clot formation and faster wound healing. This talk aims to highlight the recent advancements made with respect to the newest formulations of platelet concentrates including recent developments in horizontal centrifugation. Thereafter, the Bio-Heat technology will be presented with an ability to extend the working properties of PRF from 2-3 weeks to 4-6 months. Lastly, new clinical applications and uses of PRF will be presented in periodontology and facial esthetics.
