Grafting of the maxillary sinus floor with autogenous marrow and bone. Boyne PJ, James RA.
Graft properties An ideal bone-graft substitute must provide scaffolding for osteoconduction, growth factors for osteoinduction, and progenitor cells for osteogenesis. Furthermore, the bone graft must be able to integrate with the host. Autogenous bone.
Particularly in the maxilla, loss of alveolar bone height and buccolabial bone width, often combined with a reduction in bone density, severely compromises its retention capacity. This book reports the authors? 15-year experiences with autogenous onlay bone grafting and simultaneous endosseous implant placement in the reconstruction of the edentulous atrophic maxilla. With an overall survival rate of 95% after 5 years and 93% after 10 years, this approach offers a highly predictable treatment option for patients who previously could not benefit from implant treatment.
