Lateral sinus augmentation by using natural bovine bone substitute with hyaluronate




sinus lift, bone augmentation, bovine, bone substitute, hyaluronate


Bovine bone substitutes are among the most commonly used biomaterials for sinus grafting application. The aim of this work was to verify the clinical use and performance of a novel natural bovine bone substitute with hyaluronate in a sinus lifting procedure. Therefore, a lateral sinus lift approach was used, and a very strong hard tissue formation of residual xenograft granules embedded into newly formed bone was observed after eight months, as two implants were finally installed. In conclusion, the bovine bone substitute with hyaluronate supported efficient defect grafting and achieved successful sinus augmentation.
