Aim: This study aims to evaluate the effects of platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) membrane on secondary healing after pleomorphic adenoma (PA) excision in the hard palate. Materials and Methods: PRF membranes were laid over mucosal defects which occurred following PA excision in the hard palate. The secondary healing process was monitored in the patients by follow-up examinations on postoperative days 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, and 40. Results: In this preliminary study, epithelialization was observed to have completed on the 30th day of follow-up in the first patient and on the 35th day in the second and third patients. No bleeding or infection was seen in any of the three patients. Conclusions: PRF membrane as a new method in the secondary healing after PA excision in the hard palate provided rapid healing and reduced complications such as bleeding and infection.
