dr. pikos. very nice closure. do you prefer blunt dissection for release of flap in this area? what is the success rate of vertical growth and how much height was regenerated? thanks for the video.

Thanks Maurice,

Have taken a biopsy specimen lets see. Will keep you posted.
As regards the sterility breakdown that should not be the cause as it was done in the OT under strict asepsis.

Dr. Gandhi;
A very rare case failure. Very difficult to assess the reason. Did you take a culture or biopsy of the fibrous tissues and black bone? It would be needed to see what type of bacteria was present. Did the patient have a significant medical history or did the patient have any post surgerical illness? Without this information it would be a guess as to why this may have occured. Without flap breakdown or significant medical issues, I see no reason for the failure other than sterility breakdown. The resorption of the bone, especially the Bio-Oss is almost impossible at 4 1/2 months? Do a oral gingival culture and a blood test on this individual and have an ENT to evaluate the health of their Sinus before performing any other surgical procedures.

Dr.Pikos and Dr.Maurice,

Would like to know the reason for the failure of a case.
Did a Corticocancellous block graft fixation in the maxilla (iliac bone) in a case of Ectodermal Dysplasia. B/L sinus grafts were done using Autogenous & BIOSS 50:50 with biomend extend membrane. No perforations were there in the membrane which was tough n fibrous.
4 n 1/2 mths later the maxilla displayed fibrosis and upon reentry the graft had almost totally disappeared n left behind soft black bone as appears in aseptic necrosis. Almost all of the sinus graft has resorbed whichn has never happened with me till date and the membranes B/L are thinned out and perforated. All this despite there being no infective foci around.
Please comment on the possible causes.
Thanx

Leonardo;
Difficult situation. If there is exudate the block is probably not going to do well and should be removed, irrigated and sutured before coming back to regraft at a later date. Would prefer grafting soft tissue prior to 2nd surgery to make sure you have good quality tissue to cover the bone graft. If the block was secure with no exudate, I prefer to grind the exposed bone down until I see a bleeding surface and see if we get epithelialization over the top. Normally, we lose the exposed portion at the least.
Good luck
Dr. Salama

Leonardo Diaz - (8/10/2009 7:37 PM)

would like to know what colud I do with a patient with a deshicence in anterior maxilla after bone grafting.

I sutured tension free with dermis membrane alloderm the right site bone block is ok, but the left site is open with a little exudate after 15 days Post-op.

I take off partially the alloderm because a half was loose and the oter half fixed and sensitive pain.

i need to take a defenitive treatment, so could i do the flap again and a new alloderm leaving the bone block or taking this out.

Nice and smooth surgery.
I’m looking forward to see some videos about complication management during surgery, such as soft tissue bleeding, intra bony bleeding and sinus membrane perforation. I know it’s hard to collect that kind of video, but it makes Dentalxp different from other similar website. I think we should be able to manage complications comfortably before becoming a good surgeon.

“The Transition Zone”: The Critical Esthetic Triad of Bone, Tissue & Restoration
The achievement of an aesthetic implant-supported restoration is a constant challenge to the restorative dentist. Due to the circular shape of the implant and its smaller diameter, when compared to the root of a natural tooth, a dilemma inevitably occurs of how to construct an artificial crown that will imitate the natural tooth crown form. The appearance of the surrounding soft tissue “the transition zone” is of major importance, and various techniques have been developed to guide its topography. The lecture will show key factors and parameters through clinical procedures in order to achieve a sound aesthetic outcome in different treatment scenarios.

Modern Flap Management in Bone Augmentation Premium Member Content

Modern Flap Management in Bone Augmentation
What does it mean “Modern”? Less traumatic? More predictable? More biology? Less incisions? Let’s see what modern means from a biological and from a surgical standpoint. How can we achieve a full passive closure from the flaps without damaging the blood supply? Can we take care of the oxidative stress? Can PRF help us in these matters? Surgically, the management of anatomical elements such as the mylo-hyoid muscle and the mental foramen will be discussed and a simplification protocol will also be presented. No doubt, “modern” flap management raises a lot of questions!

Brånemarket al1 originally described autologous bone grafts used with dental implants,and they are now a well-accepted procedure in oral and maxillofacial rehabilitation. Placement of an end osseous implant requires sufficient bone volume for complete bone coverage.Further-more,the patter no fridge resorption ,which contributes to a nun favorable maxillo mandibular relationship,requires angulation of the implant and/or angled abutment,and affects the proximity of adjacent facial concavities (maxillary sinus,nasal cavity)and vital structures(mandibular nerve).

A Novel Strategy for Bone Integration and Regeneration: Case Studies

A Novel Strategy for Bone Integration and Regeneration: Case Studies
Ultraviolet light treatment of dental implants immediately prior to placement, or photofunctionalization, is a novel clinical tool with the potential to improve implant therapy. Photofunctionalization improves the surface properties of titanium surfaces by removing hydrocarbons, regenerating hydrophilicity, and optimizing electrostatic properties. We photofunctionalizated dental implants and titanium mesh (Ti mesh) in two complex clinical cases requiring simultaneous guided bone regeneration, sinus elevation, immediate implant placement into the extraction socket, and esthetic consideration

Long Term Follow-Up of Dental Implants Placed in Autologous Onlay Bone Graft

Long Term Follow-Up of Dental Implants Placed in Autologous Onlay Bone Graft
The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of autologous intraoral onlay bone grafting (OBG) in correlation with long-term survival rates of dental implants placed in the augmented bone. A retrospective study was conducted on 214 patients who received a total of 633 dental implants placed in 224 autologous intraoral block OBG augmentations, combined with Bio-Oss – mixed with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and covered by platelet-poor plasma (PPP) – as scaffold, with a follow-up time up to 137 months. We suggest that augmentation of severely atrophied jaw bone through the placement of horizontal and/or vertical intraoral OBGs in combination with Bio-Oss saturated with PRP and covered by PPP should be considered a reliable, safe, and very effective surgical technique for obtaining high bone graft survival rate and high long-term implant survival rate.
