Objectives: Outlining clinical recommendations of a Consensus Conference about postoperative complications of maxillary sinus surgery. Materials and methods: A Consensus Conference of experts (oral surgeons, maxillofacial surgeons, ENT and microbiology specialists) was put together with the aim of outlining clinical recommendations on how to prevent, diagnose and treat post-operative complications. Results and conclusions: Maxillary sinus surgery is a reliable and predictable treatment option for the prosthetic rehabilitation of the atrophic maxilla. Nevertheless, these interventions are not riskless of intra-operative and post-operative complications with respect to implant positioning in pristine bone. Post-operative complications can be serious for the involvement of adjacent anatomical structures.
