Innovation: Combining Zygomatic implants with soft tissue flaps
Part of Saturday afternoon’s Innovation section chaired by Dr Greg Boyes-Varley
Saturday March 2: 4:15pm-4:30pm
The maxillary ZIP flap technique has been developed in the merseyside head and neck cancer unit at Aintree Hospital, Liverpool and combines the use of zygomatic implants to support an early loaded fixed dental prosthesis in conjunction with soft tissue reconstruction of the low-level maxillary defect. Chris will present a brief overview of the technique and a summary of the outcomes available from his growing patient cohort.
