Fence Technique for Localized Three-Dimensional Bone Augmentation: A Technical Description and Case Reports
Mauro Merli, MD, DDS/Giorgia Mariotti, DDS/Marco Moscatelli, DDS/Alessandro Motroni, MS/Annalisa Mazzoni, DDS, PhD/Simona Mazzoni, MD, DDS, PhD/Michele Nieri, DDS

This article presents a novel technique for three-dimensional bone augmentation utilizing microplates to stabilize particulate bone graft. The goal of vertical augmentation often is challenged by complications of the titanium mesh or nonresorbable membranes. Merli et al present a technique using microplates as an additional scaffold to stabilize particulate—made up of a 50:50 combination of xenograft and autogenous bone. The graft/scaffold was protected by a resorbable collagen membrane. Six cases were enrolled in the study with all patients achieving successful augmentation. Volumetric analysis and histologic results are presented.
