Alveolar Bone Grafting Fri, Oct 9

The alveolar bone grafting procedure is a critical but often under-emphasized component of the care of patients with cleft lip and palate. The anatomy is oftentimes challenging to visualize and conceptualize, and the role of adjunctive products including bone morphogenic protein, demineralized bone matric and ADM is unclear. This panel course will review the anatomy, surgical techniques and role of adjunctive materials in maximizing outcomes in alveolar bone grafting.

At the end of this activity participants will be able to:

  1. Identify key indications for alveolar bone grafting;
  2. Outline pertinent anatomy for performing ABG;
  3. List the key steps in the procedure;
  4. Discuss the role of adjunctive materials in alveolar bone grafting;
  5. Define good outcomes in ABG surgery.
