Sinus lift referral protocol

from Dental Tribune

Researchers at the New York University College of Dentistry recently surveyed otolaryngologists from New York state to help establish a referral protocol before performing a maxillary sinus lift. The study, "New York state ear, nose, and throat specialists' views on pre-sinus lift referral," appeared in the February 2011 issue of the Journal of Periodontology. The study, by M. T. Cote, S.L. Segelnick, A. Rastogi and R. Schoor, assessed the need to consult an ear, nose and throat specialist in the pretreatment work-up. Results showed that the majority of ENT specialists recommended a CT scan be done before sinus elevation surgery, even in the absence of symptoms. The greatest concerns of the ENT specialist that would warrant a referral were prior sinus surgery, severe sinus inflammation, nasal/sinus obstruction and oral-antral fistulation. more
