Prevention and Treatment of Post-Operative Infections After Sinus Elevation Surgery

Description:
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.

fantastic and helpful lecture from a giant of dentistry. bravo

Great presentation Tiziano Tnx Omid

Dong thank you for your question, As long as the bone graft is maintained in the closed space, the infection rate is very low. But if you have a perforation into the sinus and the bone is floating inside the sinus that is mainly the cause of the infection. Thank you

Abtin Shahriari - (1/19/2016 9:40 PM)

Thank you Dr. Tiziano for your great lecture. I like to answer the questions that was presented by Federico and Arthur: 1) Regarding the post op instructions and medications: - Recommend 5-7 days of no strenuous activities, - Augmentin 875 twice a day, - Afrin nasal spray- alpha adrenergic agonist, only for three days - Sudafed ( not prescribed in hypertensive patients) - Usually do not prescribe Flonase. It is a corticosteroid - it will take few days for it to be effective and cannot use it in certain patients

Federico Villarruel - (1/17/2016 6:00 PM)

Dr. T. testori I would like to thank you for sharing such a huge lecture with us. I have two questions related with post-op indications: 1-What if the patient is an active sportman?.How many days of rest should be given before starting with his normal activity(such as running or weight-lifting?in order to avoid complications. 2-Which corticoids do you use as a norm?and how often? thank you again!Federico Villarruel

Arthur Lyford - (1/17/2016 4:15 PM)

Dr. Testori,
Thank you for a meaningful and valuable presentation. Is there a use for fluticasone proprionate(Flonase)or other inhalational anti-inflammatories in the case of a blocked ostium, in conjunction with antibiotic administration? Thank you Art Lyford

very good lecture !!

As long as bone graft is used in the sinus, complication can't be avoid. The best way to prevent complications is not to use bone grafts at all in the sinus.
Many studies on graftless sinus augmentation reveals 0% infection. Thank you. DS

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.

Crestal Sinus Approach: A Hammerless Solution to the Indirect Sinus Lift
Posterior maxillary dental implant reconstruction for advanced alveorlar ridge atrophy has become possible through bone grafting procedures involving the maxillary sinus. This procedure involves augmentation of either the internal or external aspects of the sinus, or both. Bone grafting of the external aspect is performed with guided bone regeneration, using allogenic, autogenous, cortical, or corticocancellous grafts, as well as growth factors such as PRF as onlays with immediate or delayed implant placement. With the advent of new surgical techniques and equipment, sinus augmentation has become a predictable and efficient treatment. This presentation will focus on the internal, hammerless approach.

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.

Site Preparation & Osseodensification in Bone Management Premium Member Content

Site Preparation & Osseodensification in Bone Management
Today's implant arena involves not only the understanding of procedures but also the science behind wound healing. Often new technologies and instrumentation evolves that have a significant impact on what we are able to do clinically. Piezosurgical devices, periotomes, osteotomes, hydraulic sinus devices, neurosurgical drills, and the "PET" (Partial Extraction Therapies) system are just a short list of those that have made surgery more efficient and less traumatic for our patients. Osseodensification is another concept that can be added to this long list. This lecture will speak about new age bone management concepts and how these technologies may be able to assist us. Potential issues and focus on use will be touched upon as well.

Sinus Floor Elevation Via the Maxillary Premolar Extraction Socket With Immediate Implant Placement: A Case Series

Sinus Floor Elevation Via the Maxillary Premolar Extraction Socket With Immediate Implant Placement: A Case Series
When immediate implant placement is considered for teeth with close proximity to the sinus floor, apical extension of the osteotomy is significantly limited, and often a staged approach is used. Implant placement into fresh extraction sockets and sinus floor manipulation using bone-added osteotome sinus floor elevation with implant placement are techniques most often used independently or sequentially. In this care report, immediate implant placement with simultaneous osteotome sinus floor elevation is an advantageous combination of two successfully used techniques. This combined approach can significantly reduce the treatment time for implant therapy in teeth with close sinus proximity and provide the operator with the ability to place implants of desired length.

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.
