PMID: 10453674

A surgical procedure for the rehabilitation of severely resorbed maxillae is described. Twenty-five patients, made up of a development group of 5 and a routine group of 20, were treated with Le Fort I osteotomy using interpositional bone grafts from the iliac crest and, in a second stage, titanium implants. Altogether, 181 Brånemark implants were placed, and the patients were followed for up to 5 years. The implant survival rate for the development group was 60.0% after 5 years. Life table analysis for the routine group showed a 5-year survival rate of 85.6%. Twenty-two patients received fixed prostheses and 2 received overdentures. One patient lost all implants and was rehabilitated with a prong denture. (Int J Oral Maxillofac Implants 1999;14:571–578) Key words: bone graft, implants, maxillary osteotomy, two-stage procedure
