IN THE TREATMENT OF THE ATROPHIC POSTERIOR MANDIBLE
The first day of the course consists in a lecture on the interpositional bone block technique focusing on indications, surgical technique (incision, osteotomy lines, vertical bone segment raising, bone block positioning, fixation and sutures). Advantages, disadvantages and comparisons with other augmentation techniques will be taken into consideration together with the current scientific evidence coming from the literature. Surgical videos will be shown to better explain the technique.
During the second day of the course, participants will have the chance to assist to an interactive step-by-step live surgery on patient and to participate to a hands-on session on porcine mandible model to become familiar with the technique.
