Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Estimated Enrollment : 65 participants
Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Role of Platelet-Rich Fibrin in Intraoral Soft Tissue Regeneration of Head and Neck Surgery Patients: A Prospective Clinical Trial
Estimated Study Start Date : August 15, 2019
Estimated Primary Completion Date : August 1, 2020
Estimated Study Completion Date : December 31, 2020

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF) Group
Patients randomized to this group will receive treatment with a PRF graft.
Procedure: Platelet Rich Fibrin Application
Platelet Rich Fibrin application at first post-op visit.

No Intervention: No Platelet Rich Fibrin Group
Participants in the observational control group will be managed at the time of the complication by standard of care methods.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change in rate of healing in intraoral mucosa and epithelium soft tissues [ Time Frame: 3 months post-operatively ]
    Improved healing times of PRF patients compared to control group.

Layout table for eligibility information
Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years to 100 Years   (Adult, Older Adult)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   Yes

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Three categories of patients will be included in this study:

    1. Osteoradionecrosis (ORN) or medication related osteonecrosis of the jaw (MRONJ) patients who present to clinic with exposed bone and no clinical sign of infection.
    2. Patients having an excisional biopsy in clinic performed under local anesthesia resulting in a defect that cannot be easily repaired without compromising normal anatomy or function. These situations include excisions which would result in primary closure under tension or with distorted anatomy, require a local flap, or require healing by secondary intention.
    3. Patients presenting to the post-operative clinic with intraoral surgical wound dehiscence or an intraoral surgical wound healing by secondary intention.

      Exclusion Criteria:

  • Patients under 18 years of age.
  • Patient's unable to participate in blood draw either due to medical compromise, inability to tolerate the procedure, or inability of the physician to successfully draw the blood at the time of appointment.
