Abstract

Perforation of the sinus membrane is the most common complication of sinus lift augmentation. A haemostatic nasal balloon can easily separate the sinus membrane without perforating it. The use of a haemostatic nasal balloon has three major advantages: a low risk of perforation of the sinus membrane even in anatomically complex conditions, a low incidence of infection and bleeding, and a shorter operating time.
