From: Management of Schneiderian membrane perforations during maxillary sinus floor augmentation with lateral approach in relation to subsequent implant survival rates: a systematic review and meta-analysis

Focused question (PECO) How are Schneiderian membrane perforations that occur during maxillary sinus floor augmentation (MSFA) with lateral approach managed, and does perforation influence subsequent implant survival rates?
P (Population) Adult human patients requiring maxillary sinus floor augmentation with lateral approach for subsequent placement of dental implants. 1# (maxillary sinus floor augmentation OR membrane perforation) AND (dental implant)
E (Exposure) Repairing sinus membrane perforations during maxillary sinus floor augmentation. 2# (sinus lift surgery OR membrane perforation OR management of Schneiderian membrane perforations OR repair system for sinus membrane perforations) AND (dental implant)
C (Comparison) Maxillary sinus floor augmentation without membrane perforation. 3# (maxillary sinus floor augmentation OR sinus lift surgery) AND (dental implant)
O (Outcome) Schneiderian membrane perforation rate during MSFA with lateral approach; available therapeutic procedures for repairing these perforations; associated complications of Schneiderian membrane perforations; survival rates of implants in perforated vs. non-perforated membranes. 4# (implant survival rate OR complication OR outcome)
