  • Abstract A method for closure of oroantral fistulas is presented that uses an osteoperiosteal flap with a posteriorly located pedicle that is rotated downward beneath the usual vestibular mucoperiosteal flap. With this method, reconstruction of the bone fistula is obtained, the degree of postoperative alveolar bone atrophy is reduced, and the success rate of the repair is further increased.
