Clinical classification of complications in guided bone regeneration procedures by means of a nonresorbable membrane

Int J Periodontics Restorative Dent. 2011 Jun;31(3):265-73.


The goal of classifying complications in guided bone regeneration procedures with nonresorbable membranes is to provide the clinician with an instrument for easier identification of both the problem and treatment modality. A standardized terminology represents a key point for proper communication among clinicians and provides guidelines for managing these drawbacks.
