This study examines the effect of sinus lift surgery using bovine hydroxyapatite on the bone anchorage of titanium plasma flame-spray-coated cylindrical implants. A total of 54 implants were placed in the lateral bony antral walls of 27 mountain sheep. Host site augmentation was done simultaneously using bovine hydroxyapatite and autogenous cancellous bone from the iliac crest in 18 sinuses each. The bone walls of the remaining 18 sinuses received no augmentation. Pull-out tests were carried… CONTINUE READING
