Learn the history of PRF, its first use and the improvements made over the years.
12:15 AM - 1:00 PM Lunch
1:00 PM - 2:45 PM
Biological background of PRF. Understand how lower centrifugation speeds (g-force) and time results in a superior fibrin scaffold with more leukocytes. Understand growth factor release and optimization of the PRF centrifuge to improve regeneration.

This course will cover
BIOLOGY OF WOUND HEALING
Platelet Rich Fibrin intensive course
Growth factors: biology and physiology, mechanisms of action
Low Speed Centrifugation Concept for PRF: More cytokines and growth factors
Composition and influence on tissue healing
BIOLOGY OF PLATELET RICH FIBRIN
- Use of PRF in oral surgery and periodontology
- Liquid PRF: PRF that may be injected or combined with biomaterials
- PRF as a “matrix” in soft tissue management: protocols, clinical results
- PRF as a “matrix” in bone augmentation: protocols, clinical results
CLINICAL INDICATIONS FOR PLATELET RICH FIBRIN - PRF
Protocols, clinical results, new perspectives in soft tissue regeneration and bone reconstruction
PRF mixed with biomaterials: what kind of biomaterials do we have to mix with PRF?
HANDS-ON AND DEMO - PHLEBOTOMY TECHNIQUE
In order to maximize the potential of the PRF, blood collection from your patient is necessary.
There will be an introductory course in phlebotomy, including a hands-on session.
