Platelets play a critical role in haemostasis and healing process as they are a rich source of
growth factors. Several techniques have been used to collect platelet concentrate. CGF technique
is one of the most effective and simple to prepare, 1-step preparation of a fibrin matrix that is
larger, denser and richer in Growth factors. It is autologous, upgraded version of PRF and
boosted Growth Factors and CD34+ cells. CGF in regenerative surgery should therefore be
considered as a multifactorial stimulation system. The lecture highlighted on the versatility and
multiplicity of its application, which makes it stand out from other techniques proposed so far.
