Large antral pseudocysts of the maxillary sinus (APCs) may hamper the elevation of the Schneiderian membrane during sinus grafting and may impair osteo-meatal complex patency after sinus augmentation. Therefore, these should be removed prior to or at the time of sinus grafting. This study presents a new technique that combines enucleation of large APCs during sinus grafting via a lateral approach with preservation of the Schneiderian membrane periosteal layer. Twelve patients underwent a sinus graft via lateral approach during the years 2004-2012. Simultaneous APC removal was achieved through a small additional bony access, preserving the integrity of the periosteal layer of the Schneiderian membrane. Nineteen implants were inserted at the time of sinus augmentation or during a second stage. Prosthetic rehabilitation was started at 4-6 months after implant placement. No patient developed surgical complications or APC recurrence. The survival rate of implants and related prostheses was 100% over a mean follow-up of 50 months (range 12-96 months) after completion of the prosthetic restorations. This technique may represent an effective procedure to achieve APC removal at the time of sinus grafting, preserving the integrity of the Schneiderian membrane periosteal layer.
