Condition sinus floor augmentation
Treatments alpha-bio graft natural bovine bone, natural bone substitute
Sponsor Alpha - Bio Tec Ltd.
Start date May 2014
End date December 2017
Trial size 44 participants
Trial identifier NCT02384291, ABT-BG-01


This clinical study is designed to compare the regenerative outcome of using separately two different Xenografts during sinus floor augmentation.

Aim of this prospective randomized-controlled clinical trial is to compare the regenerative results of Alpha-Bio's GRAFT Natural Bovine Bone versus commercially available bone graft after two-step sinus floor elevations by clinical and histological analysis.

Clinical Parameters are wound healing parameters, radiological volume stability and implant survival rates. Histological parameters are based on a histomorphometrical analysis of trephine cores harvested in progress of implant bed preparation.
