Microsurgery in Sinus Lifting

Course Title:

Microscope-Guided External Sinus Lift (MGES) according to Behnam Shakibaie

Course Description:
The Microscope-Guided External Sinus Lift (MGES) method enables the surgeon to reduce the accidental perforation rate of sinus membrane significantly. It also helps reduce the size of the external bony window of an open sinus lift to approximately ¼ of conventional measure. Therefore, the stability of the ridge after an open sinus lift procedure rises, which increases the possibility for implant placement in the case of highly atrophic ridges while decreasing treatment time of the procedure itself. A brief theoretical introduction of MGES technique and it`s comparison to a conventional open sinus lift technique using video sessions, specially developed microsurgical external sinus lift instruments, and description of their differences to conventional external sinus lift instruments will be presented.

During the hands-on workshop, offered separately from the main podium presentation, the participants will be trained in the recently published and new technique of MGES, demonstrated practically step-by-step on animal cadaver maxilla. Please see further description and details under Workshops.

Learning objectives for this lecture:

  • Learning how to decrease the membrane perforation rate during open sinus lift significantly
  • Learning how to minimize the bony window size in open sinus lift significantly
  • Learning how to increase safety and predictably of sinus lifting while minimizing the trauma of the procedure
