Complications associated with Sinus Lifts


This symposium will review the spectrum of complications associated with sinus bone graft augmentation.

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this symposium, participants will be able to:

  1. Discuss bacterial vs. fungal sinus infections and how that may affect bone graft outcome whether involving maxillary or other pansinuses.
  2. Describe mechanical physical dysfunction such as disruption of the normal respiratory epithelium, perforations, and rhinosinus toilet.
  3. Explain how to deal with and treat graft sequela such as bone necrosis, bone migration, or induce sinus infection.
