prepared the receiving bed by baring the periosteum and freeing it of

with thrombin at a concentration of 4 I.U./ml are applied.
adhering gum at 2.4 (the alveolar mucosa, due to its elastic structure
and with only one layer of cells, is not suitable to act as marginal gum

have interfered with the tropism of the graft.

with Tissucol prepared with thrombin at a concentration of 4 I.U./ml after
diluting the aprotinina by 50% with water for injectable solutions in
