Subject: Fwd: Beginnings of an Infuse case
Augmentation of a narrow ridge using Infuse....
BMP material - Jeffrey
Upper left molar split and told by previous dentist should be
saved for bridge
Flaps to see the area and to clean the granulation tissue
Note extent of flaps because primary closure will be necessary
Infuse that has to be folded over and previously tried in Blood
is from the site
Closure with nonresorbable over the other membrane
Sutures out in 2 weeks........Silk and gut used
The excitement will be seeing the bone months down the road..

nice jeff. what amount of infuse did you use. that looked
like a 1.7cc or greater chunk. that equates to very expensive.
Very nice job !!
Did you use any titanium barrier to maintain the space to gain
volume? I saw some cases from Dr. Sasha and he put a titanium
mesh...... Here in Brasil we still don't have access to these
material (Infuse). Which membrane or base you use to infuse
the BMP? Regards Glen Carmo
when i did training....they said no barrier.....the test will
be 4 months and see bone ))) - C Hoos
Infuse can generate bone in situ. Has been placed in rabbit
muscle and generates bone. - gary
