Stem Cell Bone Allografts in Maxillary Sinus and Ridge Augmentation, Report of a Case
Introduction: The aim of this report is to illustrate the role of the Mesenchymal Stem Cell containing allograft in maxillary sinus and ridge augmentation.
Case Presentation: Maxillary sinus and ridge augmentations were performed using an allograft cellular matrix containing live stem cells. The results were evaluated via a postoperative CT scans and periepical radiographs. The sinus augmentation was evaluated in 10 weeks in which the radiographic bone tomography was similar to that of the native bone and the ridge augmentation resulted in a 3-4 mm vertical ridge augmentation.
Conclusion: Even though histological examination was lacking, the clinical and radiographic findings of the case were promising. This presentation will show the clinical and radiographic documentation in addition to discussing the potential benefits of stem cell bone matrix with its future promises.
