It seems both ti-reinforced membrane and ti mesh users like to cover with another membrane (resorbable) to prevent exposure. Nice to know.

mansour mirzaie - (9/20/2011 2:49 PM)

thank you for the nice presentation dear Dr.ishikawa.titanium mesh is a nice membrane ,easy to place but hard to remove.how do you remove the membrane ?

Milo Garcia Tempone - (3/7/2010 3:08 PM)

Thank you for sharing this nice technique. Where and how can we purchase these titanium membranes.

Mark Neale - (12/3/2009 8:15 PM)

Great results. Thanks for sharing. How were the mesh and membranes stablized?

Tomohiro Ishikawa - (6/16/2009 5:54 AM)

James, yes it is a little difficult to remove the Titanium mesh.I now always use cross-linked collagen membrane to cover the mesh in compliance with the accepted theory of GBR. Sometimes the mesh is covered with newly formed bone, in this case we have to use burs or chisels to remove the bone, before removing the mesh. On occasion, there is a thin soft tissue layer under the membrane. In this case, I use a blade to separate the tissue from the titanium mesh. In answer to your other question,I feel that it shouldn't be necessary to ever remove regenerated tissue.

Tomohiro Ishikawa - (6/16/2009 5:21 AM)

Maurice, I agree that PRGF,BMP or PDGF would have a positive influence on new bone formation. In addition, PRGF and PDGF would enhance soft tissue healing; which in turn, would reduce the chance of post-operative complications.

Paul, Thank you for your comment. I agree with you, a more stable video would be easier to watch.

How difficult is it to remove the titanium mesh at the uncovering stage?

Does it leave a somewhat bumpy ridge that you'll have to smooth down with a bur?

Maurice Salama - (5/17/2009 7:16 AM)

Amazing. Great surgical technique. Fitting the titanium membrane today can be done presurgically on a stereolithographic 3D model. Perhaps this would be a good indication for a bioactive modifier incorporated into the bone graft like PRGF or rhBMP?

Titanium Mesh and rhBMP-2 in Ridge Augmentation: Options and Limitations Premium Member Content

Titanium Mesh and rhBMP-2 in Ridge Augmentation: Options and Limitations
Titanium mesh has been used in reconstructive surgery and ridge augmentation for several years. The traditional technique involves using cancellous autogenous bone under the mesh scaffold. More recently growth factors and bone substitutes have been utilized as autograft replacements. There are several advantages to using titanium mesh for space maintenance including strength, ease of use, low cost and biocompatibility. However, the difficulty in removing the mesh has led to a search for other space maintenance scaffolds including tenting screws, dense preshaped collagen and porous high-density polyethylene. This webinar will discuss the use of rhBMP-2 for managing horizontal and vertical bone deficiencies with various scaffolds.

Advanced Bone Grafting Techniques: Part 2 - Autogenous Bone Blocks in the Reconstruction of the Atrophic Maxillary Ridge
This lecture will describe the use of autologous onlay block bone grafting for reconstruction of moderate to severe atrophic maxillary alveolar ridge. This will include a discussion of the various options to this form of grafting, such as short implants, maxillary sinus augmentation, sub-nasal elevation procedure, connective tissue grafting and soft tissue manipulation, Le-Fort I down fracture/osteotomy and the use of progenitor cells: bone marrow aspirating concentrated. A description of surgical donor harvest sites in the mandible will also be performed as well as post-op healing of these sites. Additional time will be spent reviewing causes of failure with bone blocks and implants placed into these sites.

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.

Combination Therapies in the Esthetic Zone: Steps for Success Premium Member Content

Combination Therapies in the Esthetic Zone: Steps for Success
This presentation will cover the critical aspects to consider for deciding the sequence and implementation of combination therapies. Successful esthetic zone treatment must begin with a well thought-out space management plan. This plan involves a three dimensional adjustment of the periodontal attachment, with a possibility of root submergence and partial extraction technique. Following this, a decision is made concerning the timing and position of implant placement, and an adequate hard tissue foundation can be restored using GBR with titanium mesh and collagen membrane. On top of this base a more efficient soft tissue augmentation and adjustment completes the requirements for success in the esthetic zone.

Guided Bone Regeneration Using a Titanium Membrane at Implant Placement: A Case Report and Literature Discussion
Reconstruction of the oral supporting tissues lost by disease or trauma is essential to tooth replacement with dental implant therapy. This treatment requires evidence based augmentative procedures combined with up-to-date and current techniques. Guided bone regeneration (GBR) aims to initialize this process of alveolar ridge reconstruction by utilizing biologically active and supportive materials best coupled to the body’s healing processes. The use of nonresorbable, titanium membranes can achieve GBR by ensuring graft stability and space maintenance so as to ensure optimal neovascularization. Hereafter is a case report of a ridge defect reconstructed at implant placement, with the rationale and current, evidence-based literature discussed.
