IVANKOVIC, Mariana et al. Multidisciplinary management of Acute Bacterial Rhinosinusitis after Maxillary Sinus Lift. Three years follow-up: case report. Int. j interdiscip. dent. [online]. 2020, vol.13, n.1, pp.35-39. ISSN 2452-5596.

Maxillary sinus lift surgery is considered the most predictable bone augmentation technique. However, this procedure is not without complications, which must be handled properly.

We present a rehabilitated clinical case, with a 3-year follow-up, in which a multidisciplinary and resolutive management of complications associated with the surgical technique of sinus lift procedure, using lateral window approach, was performed.

In case of postoperative infection, such as the one presented in this report, it is necessary to consider starting an antibiotic treatment at the adequate moment to prevent the aggravation of the illness or change the pharmacological treatment in case of antimicrobial resistance.

Keywords : Rhinosinusitis; Sinus Lift; Dental implants.
