BACKGROUND: After sinus floor augmentation, a thickening of the sinus mucosa has been described. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the involvement of the maxillary sinus ostium in the edematous processes after a sinus floor augmentation procedure. METHODS: Seventy-two cone-beam computerized tomographies (CBSTs) were taken before sinus floor augmentation and after 1 week and 9 months from surgery and analyses. Sinus mucosa thickness and area, ostium diameter and patency, and extension of the post-surgical transient mucosal thickening in relation to the ostium were evaluated on the CBCTs for all three periods...

The present study aimed to report: i) the sequela of sinus floor elevation (SFE) in the posterior maxilla with severe sinus membrane thickening and an undiagnosed fungal colonization but a patent ostium; and ii) a treatment course without implant removal. A 73-year-old woman underwent dental implant placement in the left posterior maxillary area. Although the patient was asymptomatic, severe sinus membrane thickening with Haller cells was observed on a radiographic examination, but the ostium was patent. After SFE and simultaneous implant placement, the patient developed acute sinusitis and was referred to an otolaryngologist...

A novel minimally invasive technique, osseodensification, is proposed to facilitate maxillary sinus bone graft augmentation. The Osseodensified Crestal Window overcomes the previous limitations of traditional crestal approaches with respect to residual bone height (RBH) of ≤ 1.5 mm as well as vertical height of augmentation (> 10 mm). Three patients, healthy and non-smoking, with three distinct and difficult clinical situations requiring sinus augmentation and having a maximum of 1.5 mm RBH (0.4 mm - 1...

The perforation of the Schneiderian membrane (SM) is a common surgical complication during the sinus floor augmentation procedure (SFA). Different approaches have been proposed to close completely the SM perforation and to avoid graft contamination or migration and postoperative sinus infection. In this context, the leukocyte and platelet-rich fibrin (L-PRF) membranes have been proposed to SM perforation treatment due to its natural adhesive property and resistance. Thus, these case series aim to evaluate the effectiveness of platelet rich fibrin (L-PRF) in the treatment of SM large perforations during SFA...

BACKGROUND: Mesenchymal stem cell (MSC)-based bone tissue engineering is a promising treatment option for maxillary sinus augmentation. Rapid vascularization is necessary to enhance the osteoinductive efficacy and prevent necrosis of the tissue-engineered bone. This study investigated whether the co-autotransplantation of endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs) could significantly enhance the in vivo osteogenic efficacy of MSCs and prevent necrosis of the tissue-engineered bone in a maxillary sinus augmentation model in dogs...

OBJECTIVES: Conventional dental implants inserted in the molar region of the maxilla will reach into the sinus maxillaris when alveolar ridge height is limited. When surgery is performed without prior augmentation of the sinus floor, primary stability of the implant is important for successful osseointegration. This study aimed at identifying the impact of bone quality and quantity at the implantation site on primary implant stability of a simulated bicortical placement. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In our in vitro measurements, bone mineral density, total bone thickness and overall cortical bone thickness were assessed by micro-computed tomography (μCT) of pig scapulae, which resembled well the bicortical situation found in human patients...

BACKGROUND: We performed maxillary sinus floor augmentation using the crestal approach and beta-tricalcium phosphate (β-TCP) and a long-term evaluation using cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT). METHODS: Twenty-three patients (30 implants) underwent sinus floor augmentation using the osteotome technique. Subjects underwent CBCT imaging before surgery, immediately after surgery, and at follow-up (≥ 3 years after surgery). We measured the changes in height of the augmented sinus floor (SL), the augmented bone above apex of the implant (BH), and the implant length that projected into the sinus (IL)...

Various bone substitutes have been applied in sinus augmentation (SA) to overcome insufficient bone height at the posterior maxilla region caused by pneumatized sinus and severe alveolar bone resorption after teeth loss. However, their effectiveness in SA needs to be further elucidated. In this study, strontium-doped brushite (Sr-DCPD), a new bone substitute, together with bovine-derived hydroxyapatite (bHA) and synthetic hydroxyapatite (sHA) was used in rabbit maxillary SA with simultaneous implant installation...

BACKGROUND: Beta-tricalcium phosphate (β-TCP) has been employed successfully as a synthetic graft material in maxillary sinus floor augmentation (MSFA) for placing dental implants. However, the lack of osteogenic and osteoinductive properties of this substitute invariably results in bone regeneration of low quality and quantity. The purpose of this study was to determine whether loading dentin matrix protein-1 (DMP1) gene-modified bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells (BMSCs) onto β-TCP promoted bone regeneration and osteointegration of dental implants in MSFA of dogs...

This case series demonstrates internal maxillary sinus elevation and placement of 37 posterior implants in 34 private practice patients using sequential motorized expander burs exclusively to infracture the sinus border and embed bone graft material (allograft or xenograft) for vertical augmentation. With this technique, manual osteotome/malleting was completely avoided, improving surgical control and the patient experience. Sinus borders were lifted by a mean of 3.92 mm in ridges that had an average residual height of 7...
