Aim: To evaluate the efficacy of Polylactic Acid/Polygycolic Acid (PLA/PGA -FisiograftÂ®) with Open Flap Debridement (OFD) and OFD alone in the treatment of intrabony defects over a period of 9 months.
Material and Methods: Twenty Nine systemically healthy subjects with total of 30 defects were included in the present, randomized, controlled and two arm parallel study. Tests were treated with OFD along with FisiograftÂ® and controls with OFD alone.
Results: On intra-group comparison, clinical parameters at 6 and 9 months showed statistically significant results. On comparing between the two groups, the reduction in Defect Specific Bleeding Score (DSBS), Defect Specific Plaque Score (DSPS), Probing Depth (PD) and gain in Clinical Attachment Level (CAL) revealed no statistical significances other than Recession Depth (REC) which was more in controls. The mean radiographic parameters at 9 months post-operatively in both the groups were statistically significant. However, the inter-group comparison revealed no statistically significant values.
Conclusions: The overall results at the end study proved that the adjunctive use of FisiograftÂ® was not beneficial when compared with OFD alone. Clinical Significance: Synthetic bone replacement graft materials are commonly used for periodontal regeneration. The present study was conducted by using PLA/PGA reveals no additional benefit over OFD alone in treatment of intrabony defects.
