The "Slit Lift" Minimally Invasive Crestal Sinus Lift Approach

Description:
Typically, in the crestal approach sinus procedure, it is expected that the elevated Schneiderian membrane will become extended. The rate of extension can be expressed by dividing the dome-shaped elevated membrane by the total base area. The higher the extension rate, the more extended the Schneider membrane becomes, increasing the risk of perforation. In order to minimize the extension rate, it is essential to have a wide base area. To that end, it is more effective, not only to detach the Schneiderian membrane from the maxillary sinus floor using pressure, but also to simultaneously use an instrument to ensure detachment. In addition, rather than working through a small hole, it is easier to widen the base area by creating a longer slit. By doing so, a surgical procedure called the “slit lift” was developed. By means of the “slit lift” procedure, the success rate of surgeries increased significantly. The commentary of this technique will be presented in a detailed format through diagrams and a surgical video.

Dr. Yuanding Huang Yes,I do. This technique doesn't need the special instrument .I recommend someφ3.0mm osteotome.

Yuanding Huang - (11/4/2014 10:35 AM)

Dr. Mizuguchi, I appriaciate your technique. But I don't have the specific pusher which has a stander to mantain the puser. Do you think the minor size osteotome can also work?

mizuguchi toshiyuki - (9/3/2014 1:06 AM)

Dr.Fells Koerniadi,I achieved the primary stability by two point. First, the slit width is about 3mm and the implant is 4mm in diameter. Second,I use a large size cap for the primary stability.

Felix Koerniadi - (8/31/2014 11:33 PM)

Great technique Dr Mizuguchi..but I wondering about the primary stability. How do you achived that, since the exsisting bone only 1mm and the sinus full of graft material

mizuguchi toshiyuki - (8/30/2014 4:07 AM)

Dr. Salama,Thank you for giving me this opportunity ! I really appreciate your kindness !

mizuguchi toshiyuki - (8/30/2014 3:58 AM)

Maharajah Muthusamy, I don't use membrane to cover the graft ,I suture very carefully .Thank you for your question !

NAGARAJAN MUTHUSAMY - (8/28/2014 5:01 AM)

Nice technique.Do you use membrane to cover the graft or not.

Maurice Salama - (8/27/2014 4:40 AM)

Toshiyuki Mizuguchi, Very clever technique. Thanks for all the detail and animations. Dr. Salama

Minimally Invasive Transcrestal Sinus Augmentation(MITSA)
In this video Dr Kher discusses a method of transitioning from the lateral window sinus elevation procedure to a less invasive transcrestal sinus elevation in cases with alveolar ridge height between 3-5mm. The technique is based on using an ossteotome mediated lift combined with a novel delivery system of injecting the calcium phosphosilicate putty graft material. Dr Kher presents a case series wherein lifts in excess of 10mm were consistently achieved using this technique. A study comparing the increase in alveolar ridge height with the novel transalveolar technique and the conventional lateral window lift is also a part of the presentation.

Transcrestal Sinus Floor Elevation: Most Frequently Asked Questions
Over 20 years of clinical application and research on transcrestal sinus floor elevation (TSFE) procedures using a variety of implants, graft materials and instrumentation has proven its reliability, and versatility. While improving upon the original osteotome technique they have not yet eliminated the need for a more invasive lateral approach, especially at sites with very limited (1-2 mm) sub-antral bone. Extensive analysis of the existing research and long-term clinical experience will provide the answers to the most pertinent questions surrounding the transcrestal approach including but not limited to: patient selection, clinical limitations, instrumentation, graft selection/necessity and management of membrane perforations.

The Anatomical Foundation of Implant Surgery Premium Member Content

The Anatomical Foundation of Implant Surgery
Knowledge of Surgical Anatomy is a critical foundation for any clinician involved in implant dentistry. In order for dentists to perform safe and successful bone grafting, implant surgery as well as effectively manage complications, they must first be well versed in the fundamentals of Surgical Anatomy of the head region with emphasis on the Maxilla, Mandible, as well as the roof and floor of the mouth. This Dentalxp presentation, in part, describes the objectives of one component of a comprehensive hands-on surgical Anatomy course being offered live in partnership with Dentalxp. This section emphasizes the Surgical Anatomy of the Maxilla and Maxillary Sinus as an example of what is covered in one section of the course lectures.

Alternative Applications of Guided Surgery: Precise Outlining of the Lateral Window in Antral Sinus Bone Grafting
Computed tomography (CT) and the application of CT-based guided implant surgery allow clinicians to provide enhanced precision and accuracy in implant surgery. Because of the difficulty in transferring a patient’s often complex anatomic sinus configurations, as viewed on a preoperative CT scan, into precise osteotomy cuts at antral bone graft surgery, a prototype cutting guide was developed. The surgical guide was developed through the use of CT imaging and the stereolithographic process to precisely position the lateral window, facilitating schneiderian membrane elevation. This report demonstrates the step-by-step method to perform precise guided sinus window preparation using computer software and a stereolithographically generated surgical guide.

Healing in Smokers Versus Nonsmokers: Survival Rates for Sinus Floor Augmentation with Simultaneous Implant Placement

Healing in Smokers Versus Nonsmokers: Survival Rates for Sinus Floor Augmentation with Simultaneous Implant Placement
Evidence suggests that smoking is detrimental to the survival of dental implants placed in grafted maxillary sinuses. Studies have shown that improving bone quantity and quality, using rough- surfaced implants, and practicing good oral hygiene may improve outcomes. In this prospective study, the long-term survival rates of implants placed simultaneously with sinus grafting in smokers and non- smokers were compared.
