Lift the veil on sinus augmentation! This exhilarating session will not only provide an overview of sinus floor elevation indications and techniques but will plunge into those uncomfortable, complicated experiences that we all share. Since the introduction in the early ‘80s, the popularity of these surgical techniques has increased exponentially and unfortunately, so have the associated complication rates. Based on personal experience and literature review, complications can occur preoperatively, intraoperatively, and postoperatively. In the spirit of the adage: “It is far easier to avoid/prevent complications than to manage complications,” this presentation will identify avoidable complications in each treatment stage.
• Review key case selection criteria for successful sinus augmentation outcomes.
• Understand the importance of proper presurgical records acquisition and analysis.
• Identify suitable surgical treatment options for the high-risk sinus graft patient.
• Appropriately manage intraoperative and post-operative sinus augmentation complications.
