Vertical Ridge Augmentation Around Implants Using e-PTFE Titanium-Reinforced Membrane and Deproteinized Bovine Bone Mineral (Bio-Oss): A case Report
Canullo, Luigi / Trisi, Paolo / Simion, Massimo
The aim of this case report was to evaluate the ability of Bio-Oss used together with an expanded polytetrafluoroethylene, titanium-reinforced membrane to restore a vertical bone defect. Bio-Oss served as a filler material. After the membrane was removed, screw-type implants were placed. During this phase, cylindric bone samples were retrieved from the augmented area for histologic examination. The biopsy samples were composed of low-density trabecular bone with numerous interspersed graft particles. Clinical and histologic results demonstrated that this surgical technique could be a successful and predictable procedure for rebuilding a resorbed ridge to place implants.
