Dental implant associated rehabilitation of the posterior maxilla poses unique challenge owing to the presence of pneumatized sinuses and atrophied alveolar bone. Sinus augmentation procedure to manage expanded sinuses frequently results in membrane tear resulting in unfavorable stabilization of the graft and associated bone regeneration. Simultaneous implant placement during sinus augmentation procedures frequently requires a minimal alveolar bone height, which when not present forces clinician to defer implant placement resulting in extended treatment duration and multiple surgical appointments. The present case report is about a piezosurgery assisted lateral wall osteotomy approach for sinus augmentation associated with membrane repair with simultaneous implant placement in the posterior maxilla.

Parry-Romberg syndrome(PRS) or progressive hemifacial atrophy is rare, poorly understood condition with an unclear aetiology and characterized by slow and progressive atrophy affecting one side of the face. PRS is a syndrome with diverse presentation and the most common early sign is a painless cleft, the “coup de sabre” near the midline of the face which marks the boundary between the normal and atrophic tissues. Characteristically, the atrophy starts in the first decade of life and progresses slowly for several years before it becomes quiescent. This article describes a case of PRS in a 19-year old female patient affecting the right side of the face which is unique in the fact that it had a late onset with rapid progression. © 2014,Journal of Clinical and Diagnostic Research All Rights Reserved.
