Predictability of Simultaneous Implant Placement in the Severely Atrophic Posterior Maxilla: A 9-Year Longitudinal Experience Study of 2,132 Implants Placed into 731 Human Sinus Grafts
Simultaneous implant placement into sinus floor grafts can be a predictable treatment option for patients with at least 1 to 2 mm of vertical residual bone height when
careful case planning and meticulous surgical techniques are used.
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.
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.
Maxillary Sinus Augmentation: Complications, Prevention and Future
Sinus augmentation using variable bone substitutes has been known as predictable method to reconstruct the pneumatized sinus cavity for several decades. However various complications such as bacterial and fungal infection, oroantral fistula and failure of bone regeneration have been reported after bone graft was done in the sinus.
Sinus Augmentation - Current and Future Trends - Part 1
Dr. Ziv Mazor reviews present techniques as well as detailing the latest innovations in sinus augmentation.
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.
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.
Increase Surgical Implant and Regenerative Success by Going 3D and Using Innovative Products
Detailed videos using 3D planning software as well as innovative products by a speaker with an extensive background in implant and regenerative surgical procedures.
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.
