This study was conducted for evaluation of the efficacy of osteoplant flex sheets (Xenogenic bone substitute) in sinus lifting procedures.
A total of 8 patients were included in this study. All patients were subjected to unilateral maxillary sinus lifting procedure through lateral maxillary wall approach. Osteoplant flex sheet was the grafting material applied in all cases. Osteoplant flex sheets were used as a tinting mean to elevate and retain the elevated sinus lining (Schniderian) membrane and also as a bone filling grafting material. All patients were subjected to preoperative clinical and radiographic examination using cone beam computerized tomography (CBCT) scans. Patient follow up postoperatively was performed at 1week, 1 month, and finally 6 months postoperatively when all patients were subjected to CBCT scan. CBCT scan generated bone height and bone density measurements were collected, tabulated, and subjected to statistical analysis.
