Small pieces of PRF were soaked with blood, sequentially delivered into the root canal, and condensed beyond the apex using a sterile root canal plugger. When the build-up of PRF reached 2 mm below the cementoenamel junction (CEJ) level, a collagen membrane was inserted to cover the PRF at the coronal level of the root canal.
