Abstract
BACKGROUND To investigate the regenerative effect of adjunctive use of guided tissue regeneration (GTR), bovine porous bone mineral (BPBM) and platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) in intrabony defects. METHODS Fourteen participants were enrolled, and for each patient their left and right 2 sides were randomized to the test group or control group. Only the worst intrabony defect on each side was analyzed. The test group received GTR, BPBM and PRF, while the control group received only GTR and BPBM. The PRF used in the trial was fluid PRF, which combined with the BPBM to form a BPBM-PRF complex. The patients were followed up by clinical and radiographic evaluation for 24 months after surgery. RESULTS Probing depth (PD) in the test group was significantly less than that in the control group at 12 and 24 months after surgery, and the mean difference was approximately 0.5-0.7 mm. Clinical attachment level (CAL) gain in the test group was approximately 0.9 mm higher than that in the control group at 6 months after surgery, and the difference reached 1.0-1.1 mm 12 and 24 months after surgery. None of the other clinical or radiographic parameters differed significantly between the two groups at any time-point after the surgery. CONCLUSION Compared with GTR and BPBM, the combination of GTR and BPBM-PRF complex is more effective clinically, and results in better clinical outcomes. This article is protected by copyright.
