Abstract Synopsis


Prof. Dr. Ioannis Georgakopoulos


A new, pioneering minimal invasive regenerative technique of immediate implant
placement and bone grafting in the sinus without the need for sinus floor elevation
(SFE). The IPG-DET technique uses the autologous biomaterial “CGF-CD34+ Matrix”, a
complex of fibrin, concentrated growth factors and stem cells with simultaneous
intentional perforation of the Schneider’s membrane.
These two characteristics, the use of CD34+ stem cells from the same patient and the
perforation of the sinus membrane, constitute the main differences of the IPG-DET
technique as compared to all the other techniques and methods of sinus floor elevation.
Clinical research so far shows that this is a solution to the difficulties that the dentist
faces when he/she plans to place implants in the posterior region of the maxilla, an area
presented with the highest needs for implant therapy. These areas are usually present
with extensive bone resorption and with bone mass of low quality and density.
The need for a technique that gives the dentist the ability to place implants in these
regions of the maxilla, in a simple manner, avoiding time-consuming regenerative
operations of high cost, was imperative.
The “restriction” of the sinus was obliging all the present worldwide known techniques
to operate between the bone ridge and the base of the sinus membrane with great
care, in order to avoid membrane rupture. Consecutive to this fact, the use of shorter
implants was also employed.
IPG-DET technique overcomes this obligation with the intentional perforation of the
Schneider’s membrane and the insertion of the pure autologous biomaterial “CGFCD34+
Matrix” into the pit, towards the sinus cavity. This way we can place implants at
least 10 mm in length
