STUDY: Significantly higher volume stability of maxresorb® compared to pure beta-TCP

Jelusic et al.
Monophasic ß-TCP vs. biphasic HA/ß-TCP in two-stage sinus floor augmentation procedures – a prospective randomized clinical trial. Clin. Oral Impl. Res. 0, 2016 / 1–9.

The study compared of monophasic β-TCP (MBS) and biphasic β-TCP (maxresorb®) in maxillary sinus floor elevations using the lateral window technique. Biocompatibility, osteoconductivity and implant stability were analyzed histologically, radiologically and by resonance frequency analysis. Overall 60 patients were treated and 67 sinus lifts were performed.


Both monophasic and biphasic materials show good biocompatibility and osteoconductivity with satisfactory support on implant stability. Six months after sinus lift surgery the radiological volume of maxresorb® was significantly more stable than that of ß-TCP (6.66% vs. 22.2%). In addition, resonance frequency analysis endorsed a higher implant stability quotient for maxresorb® after six months.
