How to rehabilitate the maxillary arch?
I am considering as my primary treatment plan doing bilateral sinus lifts with bone grafts and installing 3 implants on each side or All on 4.

Authors: Lee JS, Ha SW, Yu S, Lee GJ, Park YJ Abstract PURPOSE: To evaluate the efficacy and safety of pterygium excision using a large conjunctival autograft for the treatment of recurrent pterygium. METHODS: The medical records of 120 patients (126 eyes) with recurrent pterygium were reviewed. For each affected eye, pterygium excision with a large conjunctival autograft was performed. The graft was harvested from the superior bulbar area and measured more than 8 × 10 mm in size. Only patients who completed at least six months of follow-up were included. Postoperative clinical outcomes, recurrence rate, ...
There is an article which describes using sintered xenograft (bovine) over an allograft for Ridge Augmentation. Any thoughts on this technique?
Conclusion: Based on experimental evidence and some relevant clinical observations, metformin seems to be a promising drug in the treatment of progressive renal damage. RCT studies are the next essential step.Nephron
Conclusion: All the investigated implant materials had a potential for having the same effective stiffness as the native skull bone. All the materials also had the potential to be as strong as the native bone. To match inherent properties, the best choice of material and thickness is thus patient specific, depending on the quality of the patient’s native bone.
Medtronic‘s (NYSE:MDT) spinal devices division has agreed to pay $12 million to settle allegations that the medtech giant made false claims to doctors and patients about its Infuse bone-growth protein, according to a Star Tribune report. States joining in the settlement include California, Massachusetts, Illinois, Washington and Oregon, according to the report.

Conclusion. Patients with pseudarthrosis detected 1 year postoperatively may be observed without any intervention because approximately 70% of them will eventually fuse by the 2-year point. Early revision could, however, be considered if the pseudarthrosis is associated with considerable neck pain after multilevel ACDF. Level of Evidence: 3
The aim of this study was to evaluate skull replacement options after decompressive craniectomy by systematically investigating which combination of geometrical properties and material selection would result in a mechanical response comparable in stiffness to that of native skull bone and a strength as high or higher than the same. Materials and methods: The study was conducted using a Finite Element Model of the top part of a human skull. Native skull bone, autografts and commercial implants made of PEEK, solid titanium, two titanium meshes and a titanium-ceramic composite were modeled under a set load to evaluate deforma...
Irradiated allografts and autografts are commonly used for anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction. The outcomes between these two grafts are controversial. This meta-analysis and systematic review of prospective comparative studies was performed to compare the clinical outcomes, including knee functionality, stability, subjective evaluation, complications, and failure, of irradiated allografts and autografts in primary ACL reconstruction.
