11 years follow up of a Cortical plate and sinus lift for posterior maxillary atrophy

Posted on By oscar maldonado In Bone Grafting

Female, no medical conditions, upper bicuspids missing, narrow ridge, need for sinus elevation.
tx plan: sinus lift lateral window for vertical augmentation, cortical plate from ramus with autogenous bonegraft for horizontal augmentation.

Nice work. Why did you choose Ramus Block over GBR here? Regards Dr. Salama

From experience, I prefer to use Khoury's technique over GBR, if patient accepts donor site surgery. Had few complications and exposures are easy to treat, just trim the bone exposed (no need to raise a flap) with a bur and problem solved. with GBR if a PTFE membrane got exposed I have to remove the whole membrane and bonegraft is compromise. So I can tell is just based on my personal preference. Both techniques are excellent options, but in my hands I will go for the donor site and get some autogenous bone. Besides the defect was mainly horizontal, favors a cortical plate from ramus with autogenous bone. most of the vertical gain is from sinus lift.

We all know we should be doing it. It’s good for the heart, good for energy levels, and blah blah blah. But “exercise” remains a word most people dread to hear.While it’s true that nutrition will get you most of your results, exercise plays an important role in achieving good health. Whether you want to lose body fat, or gain some muscle, look amazing, or get your cholesterol under control, exercise will play a critical role in getting you to your goals.[url= https://www.doihealthy.com] My Health Calculator [=/url]
