Histomorphometric Analysis of Sinus Augmentation Using the ICB and MBCP
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the new bone formation of sinus augmentation with using ICB (Irradiated Cancellous Bone & Marrow; Rockey Mountain Tissue Bank, Denver, Co) and MBCP (Micro-Macroporous Biphasic Calcium Phosphate;Biomatlante, France). Study population consisted of 4 patients with maxillary posterior edentulous dentition and ridge heights were less than 5 mm. ICB (Rockey Mountain Tissue Bank, Denver, Co) and MBCP (Biomatlante, France) is mixed with 50: 50. After 6 months, the bone biopsies were done with 2mm trephine bur from lateral window opening. Mean new bone formations were 26.84 %, the residual grafts were 4.92 and soft tissues were 67.98 %. The small number of biopsies did not permit analysis of statistical significance. The variability of individual patient factors do not permit definitive conclusions. The mixtures of ICB & MBCP were superior or comparable to another various bone alternative materials in new bone formation of sinus floor elevation.
