INTRODUCTION: The endodontic regenerative procedure (ERP), which is an alternative to calcium hydroxide-induced apexification, involves the use of a triple antibiotic paste (TAP) as a dressing material. The aim of this study was to evaluate the response of rat subcutaneous tissue to implanted polyethylene tubes that were filled with TAP or calcium hydroxide.
METHODS: Thirty rats received 2 individual implants of polyethylene tubes filled with TAP or calcium hydroxide paste (CHP) and another empty tube as a control. Thirty additional rats received 2 individual implants consisting of polyethylene tubes filled with dressing material carriers (macrogol and propylene glycol) and a sham procedure. After 7, 15, 30, 60, and 90 days, 12 animals were euthanized, and the tubes and surrounding tissue were removed and processed for histology by using glycol methacrylate and stained with hematoxylin and eosin. The histological score ranged from 0 to 3 depending on the content of inflammatory cells; the fibrous capsule was considered thin or thick, and necrosis and calcification were recorded as present or absent. The results were analyzed using the Kruskal-Wallis test.
RESULTS: Both dressing materials induced moderate reactions at 7 and 15 days. These reactions were similar to the control (P > .05) and reduced in intensity (to mild) from day 30 onward (P > .05). The carriers did not interfere with the reaction of the dressing materials.
CONCLUSIONS: TAP and CHP were biocompatible over the different experimental periods examined.
