How would you approach this case? Lateral window? Crestal? Densa / Osseodensification? Combination?
Let’s get a discussion going here. I will follow up later with post op images!

Tough case to choose. I did one recently vertically on a sloped ridge but it was very challenging. For a robust graft to the medial wall I'm thinking lateral.

This was my thought exactly. I debated a crestal approach but ultimately felt that a lateral window would be more predictable given the sloped sinus floor. I also used Densa burs / osseodensification for increased implant stability.
