Abstract:The aim of the present study was a quantitative evaluation of the in vitro fibrin clot extension on different implant surfaces. Forty-five disk-shaped commercially pure Grade 2 titanium samples with three different surface topographies (machined, DPS, and Plus) were used in the present study. For the quantitative evaluation of the fibrin clot, 30 specimens were used (10 per group); human whole blood was employed. Venous blood was drawn from three healthy adult volunteers, and 0.2 mL were immediately dropped on…
