Regenerating lost pulp tissue as a result of trauma or disease is very interesting and an exciting concept and revascularization via blood clotting is considered to be a feasible and practical approach in this direction. This method has been practiced since long with promising results reported by studies but so far consensus on treatment protocols as well as the nature of tissues formed inside the root canal space is lacking. The objective of this review is to appraise root canal revascularization via blood clotting procedures strived in endodontic practice and the contemporary recommendations for their successful outcome.
