Autologous Bone Marrow Concentrates and Concentrated Growth Factors Accelerate Bone Regeneration After Enucleation of Mandibular Pathologic Lesions.

Abstract

Stem cell therapy is a revolutionary new way to stimulate mesenchymal tissue regeneration. The platelets concentrate products started with platelet-rich plasma (PRP), followed by platelet-rich fibrin (PRF), whereas concentrated growth factors (CGF) are the latest generation of the platelets concentrate products which were found in 2011. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the potential of combining autologous bone marrow concentrates and CGF for treatment of bone defects resulting from enucleation of mandibular pathologic lesions. Twenty patients (13 males and 7 females) with mandibular benign unilateral lesions were included, and divided into 2 groups. Group I consisted of 10 patients who underwent enucleation of the lesions followed by grafting of the bony defects with autologous bone marrow concentrates and CGF. Group II consisted of 10 patients who underwent enucleation of the lesions without grafting (control). Radiographic examinations were done immediately postoperative, then at 1, 3, 6, and 12 months, to evaluate the reduction in size and changes in bone density at the bony defects. Results indicated a significant increase in bone density with respect to the baseline levels in both groups (P < 0.05). The increase in bone density was significantly higher in group I compared with group II at the 6- and 12-month follow-up examinations (P < 0.05). The percent of reduction in the defects’ size was significantly higher in group I compared with group II after 12 months (P = 0.00001). In conclusion, the clinical application of autologous bone marrow concentrates with CGF is a cost effective and safe biotechnology, which accelerates bone regeneration and improves the density of regenerated bone.
