Have you ever wondered what Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF) is? The answer is a matrix concentrate of autologous platelets, leukocytes and fibrin. Gain predictable regeneration and accelerated healing for an overall increase of treatment success with Dr. Khan’s course on PRF applications to various implant surgical procedures. The benefit of using PRF in wound healing is that it is a second-generation platelet concentrate which can enhance both soft- and hard-tissue healing. Its advantages over platelet-rich plasma include: ease of preparation, ease of application, minimal expense and lack of biochemical modification (no bovine thrombin or anticoagulant is required). This considerably reduces the biochemical handling of blood as well as risks associated with the use of bovine derived thrombin. PRF also contains physiologically available thrombin that results in slow polymerization of fibrinogen into fibrin which results in a physiologic architecture that is favorable to wound healing. Attend Dr. Khan’s lecture to learn how PRF facilitates better healing, predictable grafting and subjectively less pain. This is a two-part course (C59 and W28) that is best attended as a full-day experience for comprehensive learning. However, attendees may choose to take the lecture course only.

Learning objectives:

Participants will be able to:

  • learn about how to incorporate platelet rich fibrin (PRF) into their practice.
  • understand the benefits of using PRF in wound healing.
  • develop excellent chair side manner.
