The objective of the study was to determine the osteoconductive potential of bovine-derived porous hydroxyapatite (HA) in combination with demineralized freeze-dried bone allograft (DFDBA) as an alternative to autogenous grafting in the maxillary sinus. The study involved 5 patients treated with 2-stage sinus elevation procedures using a combination of DFDBA and Osteograf/N 300 and 700. The healing time before implant placement ranged from 6 to 13 months. At the time of reentry, a bone core was… CONTINUE READING
