Autogenous Bone Graft - Part 3: Contouring & Fixation

Description:
In part 3 of this series, Dr. Michael Pikos demonstrates the techniques for contouring and fixation of a cortical autogenous graft harvested from the ramus buccal shelf. In addition, specific techniques and guidelines are suggested in ensuring tension free closure of the flap over the graft. Membrane use and PRP are also discussed

Questions & Comments

I prefer doing the periosteal realeasing incision just prior to wound closure and final suturing when possible as it allows me to control graft positioning, contouring and membrane placement PRN as well as final stabilization of all of the above without having to manage bleeding and visibility at the same time.

Dr korner, I agree about the periosteal incision , but I think it was done because of "filming purposes"

Robert Körner - (1/21/2013 1:38 PM)

Is there nobody out there who asks himself: isn´t this a case that could (or should) have been treated without augmentation?(or at the outmost a little lateral augmentation in the most medial area) Three Implants of at least 10mm length and sufficent diameter shouldn´t have been a problem.By the way - where are the guidelines for the "crown-implant ratio".Actually we do not really know much about the apropriate legth and diameter of the implants we use. Further I think that is prefareable to do the periosteal incision much more prior to woundclosure, because bleeding will have stopped,when you start suturing, and you have less risk of haematoma.

Hi guys,

Sorry I haven’t been more punctual with regard to being part of this blog. Allow me to address some of the questions and concerns that have been posted already regarding flap management for the RBS bone harvest. First, generally speaking, contouring a block graft prior to fixation is always indicated. There are times however where post fixation contouring still needs to be done and when this occurs it can be done predictably with a slow speed burnishing concept that I have shown. Yes, this can put the block at risk but not if it’s done properly. I do utilize particulate mineralized allograft (MinerOss) for any morticing that is necessary with these block grafts and especially when overcontouring is indicated. For the past 4 years now I utilize PRGF as opposed to PRP as a bioactive modifier with all of my bone grafting including sinus grafting from autogenous block grafting, ridge splitting, etc.

The importance of flap relaxation prior to closure of any bone graft be it block bone, mesh particulate, ridge split, etc. cannot be emphasized enough. This technique that I show is of course specific to the mental neurovascular bundle area which not too coincidentally happens to be the area (posterior mandible) where most bone grafts fail – due to incision line opening and / or vestibular dehiscence. More often than not the clinician is too conservative with flap relaxation in and around the neurovascular bundle. Hopefully this helps. Also, it is never a good idea to place implants simultaneously with block grafting in that the remodeling that will occur will result in graft compromise as Dr. Salama pointed out. Always best to stage implant placement with block grafting. Again, hope this helps clarify some points.

Best regards,

Dr. Pikos

Would it be safer to use an electric motor?

Maurice Salama - (1/4/2010 12:10 PM)

Milind and Mohammed;
Thanks for the posts and questions. I do not believe leaving behind periosteum would have a negative effect on the healing but leaving soft tissue of any kind would be a negative. Denuding the bone as Dr. Pikos shows increases the bleeding of the recepient site allowing mesenchymal cells to emerge from the host bone allowing for better incorporation of the grafted bone.
As for placing implants simultaneously, I would avoid that as it increases the risk for a large failure of the grafted area. Better to graft and then come back 4-6 months later and place the implants when dealing with any kind of block graft autogenous, allograft or xenograft. As an additional comment, the biggest risk with these blocks is early flap dehiscence or fenestration. Always make sure to work in a thick tissue environment and gain tension free closure.
Hope this helps and welcome to the blog
Dr. Salama

could u have placed implants at the same time??

milind saudagar - (1/3/2010 7:11 AM)

just watched the surgery. it was very good procedure. my doubt was the bone part which was fixed appeared to be completely denuded of all periosteum & blood. if some amount of tissue would have been present, will it affect healing in any manner?

Rand Ollerton - (4/26/2009 4:30 PM)

Very nice description of buccal release in such a way as to not violate the inferior alveolar nerve.

The "Robin Hood" Approach to Tissue Engineering
Autogenous tissue is still a gold standard for augmentation procedures. There are great sources of patient’s own tissue, often in adjacent areas, that can be utilized. The soft tissue can be moved, flipped, rolled, pediculated - in order to take from the rich sites and give to the poor ones. A novel approach for the wound closure after ridge augmentation and/or implant placement in lateral maxilla will be presented.

Biologic Strategies to Enhance Clinical and Aesthetic Success in Oral Implantology
This webinar will discuss clinical strategies for treatment of the complex implant site involving bone grafting and implant placement. Our understanding of cellular pathways, and our ability to control the wound response, expands our capacity to effect better aesthetic outcomes and compress treatment time. The reduction of the inflammatory phase of tissue regeneration speeds up osseointegration, prevents crestal bone loss, maintains papillary form, increases the density of peri-implant bone and increases tissue biotype. This enhanced tissue response allows us to predictably treat even the most complex surgical cases, compress time to final reconstruction, and to maintain these favorable tissue outcomes over an extended period of time. The use of dental implants with advanced biologic features and the incorporation autologous growth factors will be demonstrated.

Complete Management of the Implant Site: From Simple Cases to Complex Situations
The health and the structure of the peri-implant tissue is vital for a long term prognosis of aesthetic and functional dental treatments. The prevalence of peri-implant diseases and recessions is a problem that must be overcome by a perfect treatment planning, along with a step-by-step design of the future restorations. When the clinician places an implant, he must consider the 3D positioning regarding the hard and soft tissue. When one decide to restore an implant, he must be aware of the gingival volume and it’s position. In this presentation, we want to show fully documented cases, from bone grafting, soft tissue enhancement, to final restorations.

Peridontal Osseous Surgery and Root Resective Therapy
Historically, osseous surgery was performed to eliminate infected bone. Early in the 20th century clinicians realized that periodontally affected bone was not actually infected. Instead of an invasive bacterial infection, chronic inflammation was responsible for bone destruction. This finding changed the rationale for periodontal therapy and led to modern concepts of osseous surgery. Currently accepted approaches are based on guidelines, parameters, and definitions published by many highly respected…
