Introduction: Platelet rich fibrin (PRF) is a fibrin matrix made of platelets, cytokines and growth factors. It releases growth factors essential for regeneration for healing.
Case Report: PRF was obtained by a simple process from a generalized aggressive patient. PRF obtained was placed in the intraosseous defect during open flap debridement. This case presents regeneration of intraosseous defect by adjunctive use of along with PRF open flap debridement. A follow up of one year showed reduction in clinical probing depth, gain in clinical attachment and increase in radio density on post operative radiograph.
Conclusions: The healing of periodontal defect observed as there was gain of clinical attachment. The potential of PRF in periodontal surgery for regeneration of intraosseous defects in aggressive periodontitis patient should be further studied.
