To evaluate the effect of leukocyte and platelet-rich fibrin (L-PRF) in combination with deproteinized bovine bone mineral (DBBM) on bone regeneration in maxillary sinus augmentation. Thirteen patients (nine males and four females, mean age ± SD; 49.92 ± 10.37) were enrolled to the study. 26 maxillary sinus augmentation procedures were randomly performed using DBBM and L-PRF mixture (test) or DBBM alone (control) in a split-mouth design. The same surgical procedures were performed in both groups, and bone biopsies were harvested from the implant sites 6 months postoperatively for histological and histomorphometric evaluations as the primary outcome of the study. Implants were placed and then loaded in the augmented sites after 6 months. The secondary outcomes included clinical and radiographic data and were obtained pre- and postoperatively. There was no qualitative difference in histological analyses among the groups. In all samples, a newly formed bone was in direct contact with the residual material. The percentages of newly formed bone (test; 21.38 ± 8.78% and control; 21.25 ± 5.59%), residual bone graft (test; 25.95 ± 9.54% and control; 32.79 ± 5.89%), bone graft in contact with the newly formed bone (test; 47.33 ± 12.33% and control; 54.04 ± 8.36%), and soft tissue (test; 52.67 ± 12.53% and control; 45.96 ± 8.36%) were similar among the groups (p < .05). Similar radiographic bone height in the augmented area was observed, and implant survival rate was 100% for both groups. Both techniques were effective for maxillary sinus augmentation, and after 6 months of healing, the addition of L-PRF in DBBM did not improve the amount of regenerated bone or the amount of the graft integrated into the newly formed bone under histological and histomorphometric evaluation.
