A Special 2-Part Addition to the Pikos Institute Surgical Video Series.
Video 8: Titanium Mesh Placement and Video 9: Titanium Mesh Removal with Implant Placement.
Video 8: Titanium Mesh / rhBMP-2 Bone Graft for Mandibular Anterior Horizontal Deficiency
This video will feature the use of rhBMP-2/ACS with titanium mesh to augment a horizontal alveolar ridge deficiency associated with two remaining mandibular incisors. Incision design, flap reflection and release, site preparation, along with step by step description of the application of rhBMP-2 and partial allograft / xenograft will be covered in detail. Soft tissue closure with specific suture techniques will also be shown.
Video 9: Titanium Mesh Removal and Implant Placement: Status Post Horizontal Augmentation of the Anterior Mandible
This video will feature a step by step protocol for titanium mesh removal with implant placement of the anterior mandible. A previous video showcased the use of titanium mesh with rhBMP-2 and particulate allograft/xenograft for horizontal alveolar ridge augmentation of the mandibular incisor region. A sequential approach will be described for flap management, titanium mesh retrieval, implant placement and soft tissue closure.
