Controlling Systematic Perioperative Anaerobic Contamination During Sinus-Lift Procedures by Using Metronidazole: An Innovative Approach
Analysis of tomodensitometric controls following sinus grafts clearly demonstrates a quite systematic lack of homogeneity. Sinus contamination by anaerobic bacteria seems almost unavoidable during bone graft surgery, and this problem may jeopardize the healing process.The aim of this study was to characterize in a systematic way the nonhomogeneities observed at 1,2,or 3 months post surgery within allogenous sinus grafts,and to assess the possible influence of a 0.5% sterile solution of metronidazole in corporated in the sinus bonegraft.
Bone-to-Implant Apposition with Machined and MTX Microtextured Implant Surfaces in Human Sinus Grafts
The goal of this study was to histologically document the effect of two different
implant surfaces on the percentage of bone-to-implant apposition achieved with
implants placed in human sinus grafts.
Alternative Applications of Guided Surgery: Precise Outlining of the Lateral Window in Antral Sinus Bone Grafting
Computed tomography (CT) and the application of CT-based guided implant surgery allow clinicians to
provide enhanced precision and accuracy in implant surgery. Because of the difficulty in transferring a
patient’s often complex anatomic sinus configurations, as viewed on a preoperative CT scan, into precise
osteotomy cuts at antral bone graft surgery, a prototype cutting guide was developed. The surgical guide
was developed through the use of CT imaging and the stereolithographic process to precisely position the lateral window, facilitating schneiderian membrane elevation. This report demonstrates the step-by-step method to
perform precise guided sinus window preparation using computer software and a stereolithographically
generated surgical guide.
The "Slit Lift" Minimally Invasive Crestal Sinus Lift Approach
Typically, in the crestal approach sinus procedure, it is expected that the elevated Schneiderian membrane will become extended. The rate of extension can be expressed by dividing the dome-shaped elevated membrane by the total base area.
The higher the extension rate, the more extended the Schneider membrane becomes, increasing the risk of perforation.
