Practical Applications of Stem Cells, Osteoprogenitor Cells, and Growth Factors in Bone Regeneration
In-Situ Tissue Engineering (ITSE) is in frequent use today. Access to stem cells, osteoprogenitor cells, and growth factors can be obtained from quality Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) or Bone Marrow Aspirates (BMA). This allows the clinicians to regenerate 100% viable patient-specific bone for implant placements, filling in existing bone defects, cystic defects and to gain continuity of the mandible in cases where other approaches are inadequate.
- Specific straight forward techniques, dosages to be used, and selection of allogeneic scaffolds, size, and type, will be discussed so that each attendee can incorporate In-Situ Tissue Engineering (ITSE) in their practice.
