Enucleation of a Radicular Cyst with the Placement of Platelet-rich Plasma at the Surgical Site: A Case Series
Prasad Bhange, Sheetal Kelkar
Aim: Radicular cyst is the most common odontogenic cyst of jaw. The treatment of radicular cyst includes options like marsupalisation (for larger cysts) and enucleation with or without extraction of teeth. Platelet rich fibrin is increasingly used to accelerate and enhance surgical wound healing. The aim of this study was to evaluate enucleation followed by placement of PRF as an appropriate treatment option in radicular cysts. Patients and methods: Twenty patients of radicular cyst treated with enucleation and placement of platelet rich fibrin post surgically at the operated sites. Results: Enucleation of radicular cysts ensured complete removal of apical pathology. It was seen that placement of PRF is simple, technically easy and resulted in faster healing of surgical wound. Conclusion: Complete enucleation followed by placement of PRF is an efficient treatment option for radicular cysts.
