Maxillary Sinus Membrane Repair: Update on Technique for Large and Complete Perforations Maxillary Sinus Membrane Repair: Update on Technique for Large and Complete Perforations

Author(s):

Michael A Pikos, DDS

Date Added:

Summary:

Maxillary sinus membrane perforation is the most common complication that occurs with sinus elevation augmentation surgery. A technique using a slow resorbing type I collagen membrane for repair of large and complete sinus membrane perforations is described. The biocompatibility and semirigid structural integrity of this membrane, along with external tack fixation, allows for optimal membrane stabilization and maintenance. (Implant Dent 2008;17:24–31)

Sinus Floor Elevation Via the Maxillary Premolar Extraction Socket With Immediate Implant Placement: A Case Series
When immediate implant placement is considered for teeth with close proximity to the sinus floor, apical extension of the osteotomy is significantly limited, and often a staged approach is used. Implant placement into fresh extraction sockets and sinus floor manipulation using bone-added osteotome sinus floor elevation with implant placement are techniques most often used independently or sequentially. In this care report, immediate implant placement with simultaneous osteotome sinus floor elevation is an advantageous combination of two successfully used techniques. This combined approach can significantly reduce the treatment time for implant therapy in teeth with close sinus proximity and provide the operator with the ability to place implants of desired length.

Healing in Smokers Versus Nonsmokers: Survival Rates for Sinus Floor Augmentation with Simultaneous Implant Placement
Evidence suggests that smoking is detrimental to the survival of dental implants placed in grafted maxillary sinuses. Studies have shown that improving bone quantity and quality, using rough- surfaced implants, and practicing good oral hygiene may improve outcomes. In this prospective study, the long-term survival rates of implants placed simultaneously with sinus grafting in smokers and non- smokers were compared.

Minimally Invasive Transcrestal Sinus Augmentation(MITSA)
In this video Dr Kher discusses a method of transitioning from the lateral window sinus elevation procedure to a less invasive transcrestal sinus elevation in cases with alveolar ridge height between 3-5mm. The technique is based on using an ossteotome mediated lift combined with a novel delivery system of injecting the calcium phosphosilicate putty graft material. Dr Kher presents a case series wherein lifts in excess of 10mm were consistently achieved using this technique. A study comparing the increase in alveolar ridge height with the novel transalveolar technique and the conventional lateral window lift is also a part of the presentation.

Crestal Approach Sinus Augmentation with Osteotome Technique and Cartridge Delivery System Premium Member Content

Crestal Approach Sinus Augmentation with Osteotome Technique and Cartridge Delivery System
There are several ways to elevate the sinus membrane when accessed through the crest of the ridge and deliver graft into the sinus. Summers’ osteotome technique is one of the most widely used surgical procedures to achieve sinus elevation. One of the biggest challenges is instrumentation and grafting through the prepared osteotomy site. In this video, Dr. Kher will demonstrate the new cartridge delivery system from NovaBone that considerably reduces site preparation and facilitates elevation of the sinus membrane with the hydraulic pressure of Putty as it is delivered into the sinus.

Emerging Concepts in Sinus Augmentation; Atraumatic and Efficient Crestal and Lateral Access Techniques
This presentation will highlight through in depth clinical case documentation, the new and evolving role of instrumentation for access to the Sinus for Bone Augmentation. Efficiency and minimally invasive approaches which increase success and minimize complications will be highlighted. Posterior Maxillary reconstruction often involves Sinus Augmentation and Implants then inserted into the grafted site. A knowledge of useful and clinically manageable techniques that provide access but minimize large surgical flaps and sinus membrane perforations are keys to success.
