The Classic Sinus Lift Window Technique: Shape, Size, Location and Trends

Description:
Since the 1980's articles of Boyne & James descriptive technique, we have been treating the atrophic posterior maxilla almost in the same way. The piezoelectric surgery changed the manner and safety of accessing the schniderian membrane, but in order to establish a predictable result we have to be precise in the three important parameters: the shape, size and location of the lateral access. This is the basis of the procedure, and we introduce here the "Wet Gauge Technique", that makes access safer and cleaner. This method for Schneiderian membrane lift, as well as a new Incision design based on maximizing maxillary vascularity will be introduced . Also, the use of the Clinicae Template for precise implant placement is highlighted as well as the myth of the use of the lateral window wall to be utilized as a new sinus´ floor will be discussed.

Interesting concepts.

After watching the video I performed the wet gauze technique as described here and it worked wonderfully. Great instructional video. thank you so much!

Yes, the new incision design places exactly over the sinus window! But don´t worry, the old designs and ideas where developed many years ago, when PRF and microsutures where not available. When we suture mucosa, we get a tight and hermetic closure, that is completely safe. Sinus lift surgery has changed because we understand better Schneiderian bone formation potentiality and biologic cementum like PRF and PRGF help us to seal better incision wounds. Suture materials are better than old silk, and lens magnification also help us to have a better primary healing of our sinus lift procedure.

thanks for the presentation. with the new incision design doesn't this place the incision line very close to the sinus window? in that case u risk loosing your graft in case the incision line opens up for any reason. just a thought. thank u

Congratulations Dr Campos the Gauge Technic is great and that kind of flap...God enlighten you always......

The Clinicae Template is sold in US by Dental Xp, ask Eddie Salama, also in the PRODUCTs tag you can find it.

where can we buy metal template

Very nice and useful presentation, thanks for sharing. Easy, cost effective and fast. what else do we, and ours patients, need?. Felicidades, y gracias compañero, por regalarnos un pedazo de ciencia.

Prevention and Treatment of Post-Operative Infections After Sinus Elevation Surgery
Maxillary sinus surgery is a reliable and predictable treatment option for the prosthetic rehabilitation of the atrophic maxilla. Nevertheless, these interventions are not risk-less of postoperative complications with respect to implant positioning in pristine bone. The aim of this lecture is to report the results of a clinical consensus of experts (periodontists, implantologists, maxillofacial surgeons, ENT, and microbiology specialists) on several clinical questions and to give clinical recommendations on how to prevent, diagnose, and treat postoperative infections.

Tissue Engineering and Platelet Derived Growth Factors: Evidence Based Therapy Premium Member Content

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.

Transcrestal Sinus Floor Elevation: Most Frequently Asked Questions Premium Member Content

Transcrestal Sinus Floor Elevation: Most Frequently Asked Questions
Over 20 years of clinical application and research on transcrestal sinus floor elevation (TSFE) procedures using a variety of implants, graft materials and instrumentation has proven its reliability, and versatility. 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.

Sinus Floor Augmentation With Simultaneous Implant Placement Using Choukroun’s Platelet-Rich Fibrin as the Sole Grafting Material: A Radiologic and Histologic Study at 6 Months
Sinus augmentation with simultaneous implant placement without bone graft material is a hotly debated technique. This technique could be improved and secured by the use of an autologous leukocyte-and platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) (Choukroun’s technique) concentrate. The objectives of this study were to assess the relevance of PRF clots and membranes as the sole filling material during a lateral sinus lift with immediate implantation using radiologic and histologic analyses in a case series.

Alternative Applications of Guided Surgery: Precise Outlining of the Lateral Window in Antral Sinus Bone Grafting

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.
