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

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.

Tissue Engineering and Platelet Derived Growth Factors: Evidence Based Therapy
Platelet derived growth factors are now routinely utilized in reconstructive therapy. This presentation describes very detailed and evidence based guidelines for clinicians interested in enhancing their abilities in tissue engineering, especially as it relates to bone augmentation. Specifically, while successful bone augmentation requires the standard surgical parameters of space maintenance, low pressure on the grafts and tension-free flap closure, optimization of this goal requires management and enhancement of the local biological conditions with growth factors. Towards that end, platelet concentrates through the constant release of growth factors are able to promote and enhance new vascularization, provide plasma protein, normal lipidemia, as well as increased collagen and fibrin activity.

Site Preparation & Osseodensification in Bone Management
Today's implant arena involves not only the understanding of procedures but also the science behind wound healing. Often new technologies and instrumentation evolves that have a significant impact on what we are able to do clinically. Piezosurgical devices, periotomes, osteotomes, hydraulic sinus devices, neurosurgical drills, and the "PET" (Partial Extraction Therapies) system are just a short list of those that have made surgery more efficient and less traumatic for our patients. Osseodensification is another concept that can be added to this long list. This lecture will speak about new age bone management concepts and how these technologies may be able to assist us. Potential issues and focus on use will be touched upon as well.

Sinus Floor Augmentation With Simultaneous Implant Placement Using Choukroun’s Platelet-Rich Fibrin as the Sole Grafting Material: A Radiologic and Histologic Study at 6 Months
Sinus augmentation with simultaneous implant placement without bone graft material is a hotly debated technique. This technique could be improved and secured by the use of an autologous leukocyte-and platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) (Choukroun’s technique) concentrate. The objectives of this study were to assess the relevance of PRF clots and membranes as the sole filling material during a lateral sinus lift with immediate implantation using radiologic and histologic analyses in a case series.

Maxillary Sinus Membrane Repair: Update on Technique for Large and Complete Perforations

Maxillary Sinus Membrane Repair: Update on Technique for Large and Complete Perforations
Maxillary sinus membrane perforation is the most common complication that occurs with sinus elevation augmentation surgery. A technique using a slow resorbing type I collagen membrane for repair of large and complete sinus membrane perforations is described. The biocompatibility and semirigid structural integrity of this membrane, along with external tack fixation, allows for optimal membrane stabilization and maintenance. (Implant Dent 2008;17:24–31)
