Bilateral sinus lift with collagenous or heat-treated heterologous grafts
Today we bring you an interesting case report published in the journal Implant Tribune Italian Edition that showed the different regenerative capabilities of collagenated equine bone (Osteoxenon®) compared with those of anorganic bovine bone (ABB) in a patient undergoing bilateral sinus lift.
While Osteoxenon® is produced by the Zymo-Teck® enzymatic process that preserves collagen in its native form, ABB is produced by a high-temperature heat treatment that removes the collagen component and alters the mineral component.
Clinical, radiographic, and histologic results showed that Osteoxenon® allowed faster and more complete remodeling. In addition, volumetric maintenance at 11-year follow-up…
