Assessment of allograft particles and/or blocks in sinus augmentation with simultaneous implant placement


Sinus augmentation with allograft bone particulate and/or bone block is predictable:
Radiographic bone gain and histomorphometric new bone formation were achieved in all cases, and were similar between allograft particulate and allograft bone blocks.


Superior performance in implant survival and long-term follow-up:
All 90 implants inserted simultaneously with the allografts osseointegrated, and none were lost at final follow-up (range: 50 – 120 months).

Allograft bone block may be preferred when simultaneous implant insertion is imperative:
In 4 out of 21 cases using allograft particulate, second stage insertion (at 9 months) was required to achieve implant stability.
