Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The use of non-transfusional hemocomponents represents a novelty in all surgical disciplines and aesthetic medicine. The advantages of their use range from the enhancement of tissue healing to the acceleration of repair processes; from more favorable post-operative courses to a lower incidence of infections. These encouraging results have paved the way for the clinical use of non-transfusional hemocomponents in oral surgery and implantology.

We invite authors to submit basic research and clinical articles about non-transfusional hemocomponents applied to the interconnected fields of oral implantology, periodontology, and oral surgery. Systematic reviews and meta-analyses are also welcome if they provide new sound scientific evidence in these fields.

Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:

  • Non-transfusional hemocomponents and bone regeneration;
  • Non-transfusional hemocomponents and soft tissue management;
  • Non-transfusional hemocomponents and patient-centered outcomes;
  • New technologies and protocols for the preparation of non-transfusional hemocomponents.

We hope that new ideas will promote a rapid development of these exciting topics, and we invite you to submit your best research activities to this Special Issue.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Applied Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1800 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
