Abstract

Some graft materials such as a heterologous porcine cortical lamina have an excellent capacity in creating recipient sites that can be filled with cortico-spongious collagenated bone paste that reabsorbs, allowing for the reformation of good-quality bone. In this work a technique is proposed which makes use of resorbable cortical lamina in order to create a new sinus floor that can be filled with cortico-spongious bone paste. The adequate vascularisation of the graft combined with the integration of the lamina, which does not need to be removed, makes it possible to propose this technique as a potential alternative to those used so far.
