Jokūbas Kezys1, Gintaras Janužis2
Background. During sinus floor elevation surgery some complications and individual body factors may influence long term treatment results. The purpose of this study is to assess the correlation between the long-term success of sinus floor elevation surgery and the early complications of surgery as well as individual factors of the body.
Material and methods. The review of the current literature was conducted according to the PRISMA guidelines by using NCBI PubMed database. Only new articles there selected. Articles were searched from 2010 to 2015.
Results. 15 publications related to sinus floor elevation complications have been included in the review. Total 3369 sinus floor elevation were performed.
Conclusion. Sinus membrane perforation during lateral sinus floor elevation has negative effect on the long-term outcomes of the treatment. However, in case of osteotome sinus floor elevation surgery this complication has no influence on the long-term outcomes. Smoking, advanced age, low bone volume, thin and hypertrophic sinus membrane could increase a risk of complications.
Key words: sinus lift, sinus augmentation, sinus floor elevation complications, sinus membrane perforation, sinusitis, bone infection.
