Live Surgery: Lateral Window Sinus Floor Elevation

This three-part surgical video series shows a live surgery of a lateral window sinus floor elevation procedure. The case involved a, non-smoking, female patient that was 48 years old and in good systemic health. The patient was referred for replacement of 16 that was missing for many years. Analysis of the CBCT revealed a small reduction in the width of the alveolar ridge, but there was not much loss of the alveolar ridge. At the same time, there was a very extensive sinus pneumatization, with the sinus expanding to almost cover the possible height of the alveolar ridge. Based on this and other factors a sinus augmentation using the lateral technique was indicated.

Part I:
Introduction of the case and the first 15 minutes of the surgery, including: reflection of the flap, exposure of the sinus frontal wall and conducting the lateral window osteotomy.

Part II:
Includes detachment and elevation of the sinus membrane as well as control of its integrity.

Part III:

Includes the augmentation of the sinus cavity with Xenograft and the adaptation and closure of the flap.

Our Sinus Lift Kit allows maxillary bone can be drilled efficiently, and includes all the instruments you need for both the crestal and lateral approaches.
