Abstract

The aim of this pilot study was to present a novel technique for the management of the Schneiderian membrane during maxillary sinus lift surgery using plasma rich in growth factors (PRGF). Eight maxillary sinuses were augmented in 8 patients. Two small perforations of the Schneiderian membrane occurred during the lifting procedure, which were solved using the PRGF clot before grafting the site with PRGF and anorganic bovine bone. With the exception of 1 patient who experienced pain following an acute sinus infection after 3 days of uneventful healing, the patients' postoperative quality of life was generally good. The most common complication (50% of cases) was hematoma, which disappeared after 1 week. Despite the limitations of this study concerning the sample size and the study design, the use of PRGF may be helpful in reducing complications following sinus lift surgery. More well-designed studies, with larger sample size, are needed to validate this protocol.
