Possibility of Lateral sinus lift for implant placement?

Last Updated January 18, 2019

I was told that severe mucosal thickening occupying nearly 80% of the volume of the right maxillary sinus and a failed implant in the maxillary sinus make the sinus graft augmentation (lateral approach) impossible. But, I don’t think the failed implant has anything to do with sinusitis, because the mucosa was like this from the beginning as you can find it in her initial PA. I am pretty sure that it is an old chronic condition. Besides, she shows none of sinusitis symptoms or abnormal signs related to a failed implant that was done more than 1 year ago. Thus I am wondering if a lateral sinus lift is a possibility in this case? Thoughts?
