Online Article: Treatment of Multiple Mandibular Gingival Recession Defects Using MCAT Technique and SCTG With and Without rhPDGF-BB: A Randomized Controlled Clinical Trial
Parween, Shagufta / George, Joann Pauline / Prabhuji, M.L.V.
The aim of this randomized controlled trial was to compare the clinical outcomes of modified coronally advanced tunnel technique (MCAT) with subepithelial connective tissue graft (SCTG) with and without recombinant human plateletderived growth factor-BB (rhPDGF-BB) for mandibular multiple recessions. Twenty-four Miller Class I and III recessions were randomly assigned to a group: test (MCAT+SCTG+rhPDGF-BB) or control (MCAT+SCTG). After 6 months, mean recession-depth reduction was higher in the test group (2.08 ± 0.90 mm) than the control (1.83 ± 0.93 mm). Mean root coverage was achieved, favoring the test group (82.6% ± 23.69%) instead of the control (56.2% ± 28.55%). Complete root coverage for the test group was 58.3%, which was significantly superior to control (16.7%). The use of rhPDGF-BB+SCTG using MCAT offered an advantage of a minimally invasive, predictable method for achieving optimal outcomes.
