Abstract

Abstract A review of 24 patients reconstructed with calvarial bone grafts and 93 Branemark implants (Nobelpharma, Chicago, IL) revealed an overall success rate of 91.4%. Two grafting techniques were used. A vertical grafting technique with delayed implant placement had an 86% success rate in 13 patients who had 50 implants placed. The average follow-up for this group was 31 months. A horizontal grafting technique with immediate implant placement had a success rate of 98%. This group included 13 patients who had 43 implants placed at the time of their bone grafting procedure. Two patients had a combination of grafting techniques. The average follow-up for this group was 18 months. A patient questionnaire revealed a high percentage and degree of satisfaction.
