Complications After Maxillary Sinus Augmentation: A Case ReportMaksoud, Mohamed A. DMD*Implant Dentistry: September 2001 - Volume 10 - Issue 3 - p 168-171 Article Buy Abstract Author InformationAuthors The maxillary sinus grafting procedure has been routinely performed with predictable results. The procedure has proven to be an acceptable modality for bone augmentation to provide a base for endosseous implant placement. Several complications have been documented in the literature. They vary from sinus membrane perforation to formation of a mucocele inside the bony graft mass. This report describes a serious complication after a maxillary sinus augmentation that resulted in obliteration of the sinus. *Private Practice, Jacksonville, Florida.
