Zafiropoulos et al. Changes of the peri‑implant soft tissue thickness after grafting with a collagen matrix. J Indian Soc Periodontol. 2016 Jul-Aug;20(4):441-445. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/28298828 Study aim and design: The study determined the treatment outcome of the use of mucoderm® to increase soft tissue volume as a part of implant site development. 27 patients were randomly assigned to one of two groups: mucoderm® (test) versus no biomaterial (control). The soft tissue thickness was measured at two different points at surgery and after 6 months. Results: The results showed a significant increase of the soft tissue thickness (STTh 1 = 1.06 mm, 117%; STTh 2 = 0.89 mm, 81%) in the test group. Biopsy results showed angiogenesis and mature connective tissue covered by keratinized epithelium. It was concluded that mucoderm® leads to a significant increase of peri-implant soft-tissue thickness, with good histological integration and replacement by soft tissue and may serve as an alternative to connective tissue grafting....

Vincent-Bugnas et al. Treatment of multiple maxillary adjacent class I and II gingival recessions with modified coronally advanced tunnel and a new xenogeneic acellular dermal matrix. J Esthet Restor Dent. 2017 Sep 13. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/28901687 Study aim and design: The study aimed to evaluate the treatment of maxillary Miller Class I and II multiple adjacent gingival recessions using the modified coronally advanced tunnel technique (MCAT) combined with muocderm®. 12 patients exhibiting at least 6 adjacent recessions were treated. Results: At 12 months, complete root coverage was obtained in 43% of the 100 gingival recessions, while the mean root coverage measured 84.35%. All patients were satisfied with the aesthetic appearance and would undergo the same surgery again. The authors concluded that treatment of Miller Class I and II multiple gingival recessions using mucoderm® in conjunction with the MCAT could be successfully used as an alternative to connective tissue grafts, with the advantage of avoiding the discomfort and morbidity of...

Fujioka-Kobayashi et al. In vitro evaluation of an injectable biphasic calcium phosphate (BCP) carrier system combined with recombinant human bone morphogenetic protein (rhBMP)-9. Bio-Medical Materials and Engineering 28 (2017) 293–304. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/28527192 Study aim and design: The study evaluated the possibility of combining maxresorb® inject with growth factors by analyzing adsorption of rhBMP9 as well as adhesion, proliferation, viability and differentiation of stromal cells. Results: The results demonstrated that maxresorb inject serves as an excellent carrier for the growthfactors. The bone paste showed very good adsorption/retention potential of rhBMP9 with a slow and steady release over a 10 day period. The combination of maxresorb® inject and rhBMP9 demonstrated a good osteoinductive potential by positively influencing the osteoblastic differentiation of stromal cells....

The debate predominantly focused on the clinical indications of cerabone® and its handling. The goal of the meeting was to develop an indication-based guideline for the clinical use of cerabone®, i.e. which basic principles should be followed when using cerabone® for different bone augmentation procedures. Experts invited were Assoc. Prof. Dr. Ziv Mazor (Raanana, Israel), Dr. Alessandro Rossi (University of Milan, Italy), Dr. Pedro Lázaro Calvo (Madrid, Spain), PD Dr. mult.

Of all cases, 75% are associated with osseous defects of the alveolus. Bone grafting of the alveolar cleft is often indispensable to allow a descent of the canine adjacent to the cleft or an orthodontic closure of the tooth row. The patient with a cleft alveolus with a continuous bony gap reaching from the alveolar crest (in region 22) into the piriform rim and nasal floor chose an...

A new study about a sinus floor elevation method has recently been published in the International Journal of Oral & Maxillofacial Implants, where cerabone® has been used as the unique grafting material: Tawil G, Tawil P, Khairallah A. Sinus Floor Elevation Using the Lateral Approach and Bone Window Repositioning I: Clinical and Radiographic Results in 102 Consecutively Treated Patients Followed from 1 to 5 Years. Int J Oral Maxillofac Implants. 2016 Jul-Aug;31(4):827-34.) Objectives: The goal of this study was to determine the clinical outcome of the lateral sinus floor elevation technique with the repositioning of the bone window. 109 sinus lifts were performed on 102 patients. Following lateral window preparation and lifting of the sinus mucosa, the sinus was grafted with small cerabone® granules. 205 implants were placed (160 simultaneously with grafting; 45 six months after grafting) and the patients were followed up for 12 to 60 months. Conclusions: The lateral sinus elevation with window...
