Abstract:

Case reports of two human volunteers are presented with histologic evaluation of the results 28 days after periodontal flap surgery. Three specimens were treated with phosphate-buffered physiological saline applied to the diseased root surface for one minute control, and three specimens were treated with an experimental combination of 2 bile salt followed by 5 human plasma fraction for one minute each. There are indications that a connective tissue new attachment may be possible following the biologic preparation of diseased root surfaces.
