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:

1/1/2008


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)

Zygomatic Implant Placement in Conjuction with Sinus Bone Grafting: The "Extended Sinus Elevation Technique." A Case-Cohort Study
The zygomatic implant in mainly indicated for the rehabilitation of extremely atrophied maxillae when bone augmentation should be avoided. One Drawback of zygomatic implants, which typically pass through the sinus, is initial or late bone resorption around the implant neck, which can result in oroantral communications followed by possible infection of the sinus. To decrease the risk of sinus infection, a modified technique was developed to preserve the integrity of the sinus membrane and to regenerate bone around zygomatic implants using an extended sinus grafting approach.

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.

Tissue Engineering and Platelet Derived Growth Factors: Evidence Based Therapy
Platelet derived growth factors are now routinely utilized in reconstructive therapy. This presentation describes very detailed and evidence based guidelines for clinicians interested in enhancing their abilities in tissue engineering, especially as it relates to bone augmentation. Specifically, while successful bone augmentation requires the standard surgical parameters of space maintenance, low pressure on the grafts and tension-free flap closure, optimization of this goal requires management and enhancement of the local biological conditions with growth factors. Towards that end, platelet concentrates through the constant release of growth factors are able to promote and enhance new vascularization, provide plasma protein, normal lipidemia, as well as increased collagen and fibrin activity.

Sinus Floor Elevation: A Clinical, Radiographic and Histologic Overview
This presentation and imbedded HD videos will highlight the important aspects of the Sinus Lift procedure and how to increase the success rate while minimizing complications. An overview of the procedure with detail radiographic planning and follow up outcomes will be displayed and histoligical results highlighted to gain an appreciation of the timing of bone fill and when you can place and load implants in the augmented sinus. Complications and their management will be equally covered with an impetus on case and patient management and follow up care. Common medications and techniques for each procedure will be noted.

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.
