Clinical method
Fig. 9 Positioning of the fibrin glue with a two-way syringe and the aid of a celluloid mould placed in the bone defect to ensure proper fitting of the glue to the distal surface of the root.

Experimentation on the dog
Fig. 16 The bone defect is shown following artificial preparation and stabilization. The defect is 10 mm deep.
Fig. 17 Careful radicular curettage follows (compare with Fig. 31 concerning histological examination).
Fig. 15 At the beginning of experimentation on the dog, a flap having mucoperiosteal thickness at the level of the second upper right premolar is sculpted.
Fig. 18 The fibrin glue, prepared at a concentration of 500 I.U./1 ml with a Duplojet two-way syringe and a celluloid mould placed in the defect to facilitate adaptation of the glue to the root surface. Fig. 19 The amniotic membrane has been placed on the fibrin glue over the entire apico-coronal surface of the root.
