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

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.
Human Histologic Evaluation of Anorganic Bovine Bone Mineral Combined with Recombinant Human Platelet-Derived Growth Factor BB in Maxillary Sinus Augmentation: Case Series Study
The objective of this study was to examine the potential for improved bone regenerative outcomes in maxillary sinus augmentation procedures using platelet-derived growth factor BB and anorganic bovine bone mineral.
Schneiderian Membrane Perforation Rate During Sinus Elevation Using Piezosurgery - Clinical Results of 100 Consecutive Cases
This article presents an alternative approach that uses a piezoelectric instrument for the sinus elevation procedure.
Maxillary Molar Extraction and Immediate Implant Placement with Crestal Sinus Lift
Atraumatic maxillary molar extraction via root sectioning followed by hydraulic crestal sinus lift and immediate implant placement. Sinus lift performed at interradicular area with sinus membrane elevated approximately 3 mm with specialized kit using saline injected through osteotomy. Hydraulic pressure gently raises the sinus membrane without risk of perforation.
Minimally Invasive Sinus Augmentation Using Ultrasonic Piezoelectric Vibration & Hydraulic Pressure
This video demonstrates hydrodynamic piezoelectric internal sinus elevation (HPISE) which was reported in 2008. Unlike conventional crestal approaches, HPISE is free from postoperative positional vertigo because ultrasonic piezoelectric vibration is used to break sinus floor directly, not using osteotome.
The MIAMBE Balloon Crestal Sinus Elevation Technique
Dr. Mazor displays in detail the utilization of the MIAMBE (Minimally Invasive Antal Membrane Balloon Elevation) Balloon for grafting of the Maxillary Sinus utilizing a crestal approach.
Transcrestal Sinus Floor Elevation: The MFAQs (Most Frequently Asked Questions)
As a less invasive alternative to the lateral window osteotomy, many clinicians are anxious to expand its clinical utilization, but are reluctant to do so, based on perceived limitations and confusion generated by the myriad of reported modifications, all proclaiming simplicity with more sinus elevation at reduced risk. While improving upon the original osteotome technique they have not yet eliminated the need for a more invasive lateral approach, especially at sites with very limited (1-2 mm) sub-antral bone. Extensive analysis of the existing research and long-term clinical experience will provide the answers to the most pertinent questions surrounding the transcrestal approach including but not limited to: patient selection, clinical limitations, instrumentation, graft selection/necessity and management of membrane perforations.
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.
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.
