The Regenerative Potential Of Blood Derived Autologous Matrix - Case Reports (Abstract)
The concept of regenerative endodontic procedure have emerged from the field of tissue engineering which emphasizes the spatial assembly of distinct stem cells, growth factors/ morphogens, and scaffolds to form a functional tissue or organ. Cases described in the article illustrate three techniques employed for regenerative endodontic procedure namely, induction of bleeding into the canal space, introduction of biological scaffold into the canal space and a modified technique of induction of bleeding followed by introduction of biological scaffold for regeneration of pulp dentin complex. All cases performed are showing favorable treatment outcomes at and are still under follow up. The use of blood derived autologous matrix may be may be a treatment option which will reduce the need for store of materials and equipment at the same time paving the way towards customised biological alternatives for treatment.
