Stanford University places Dr. Eduardo Anitua in its ranking as the most influential Spanish researcher in the world of Dentistry

This list identifies the top 2% of the most cited and influential researchers in the world according to their scientific career.

Vitoria, 10th of March, 2021.. Doctor Eduardo Anitua, scientific director of the BTI Biotechnology Institute company, came out top of the list of Spanish researchers in the dental sector who feature in the ranking of the most relevant scientists in the world (Ranking of the World Scientists: World’s Top 2% Scientists), one of the most prestigious rankings of researchers at an international level, recognising these scientists as the most influential and cited in the world.

The ranking, put together recently by the University of Stanford and published in the Plos Biology journal, is based on several parameters that include the number of publications indexed in Elsevier’s Scopus database, citations received, h-index, works co-authored and a composite indicator (Score). As a result, a database of over 150,000 top scientists across various fields of knowledge has been created, representing 2% of the most important researchers out of a total of almost 7 million active scientists all around the world.

Specifically, in the area of Dentistry, it identifies 1,237 researchers in the world. Topping the Spanish list is Dr. Eduardo Anitua, who also figures prominently in the world ranking, in position number 62.

For doctor Eduardo Anitua, founder and scientific director at BTI, "featuring among the most cited researchers in the world is a significant international acknowledgement of the scientific quality of our work and encourages us to continue moving forward on the path that we embarked upon over 30 years ago”.

Article by Eduardo Anitua in the March issue of “Dentista Moderno”

Dr. Eduardo Anitua signs the article “Influencia de la proporción corona-implante en la carga inmediata unitaria en implantes extra-cortos de 6,5 mm de longitud. Serie de casos”, published in number 57 (March) of the journal El Dentista Moderno.

The article explains how the immediate loading of short and extra-short implants is being included in the therapeutic protocols in oral implantology, giving way to a new range of possibilities when it comes to restoring the atrophic maxilla. The problem of the unfavorable crown-implant ratio has been studied in different works on short and extra-short implants because they are used to rehabilitate large vertical atrophies and this generally generates large crowns on short implants. This disproportion may be more critical in protocols such as immediate loading and for this reason this topic is investigated in the present work. This study, in which several clinical cases were analyzed, concludes that the immediate unit load in implants of 6.5 mm in length by means of unit transepithelial and the use of interfaces is not a risk factor for generating greater bone loss or implant failure, even in cases of unfavorable crown-implant ratio or increased CHS.

New article by Eduardo Anitua in the March issue of Maxillaris

The article shows how short (≤ 8 mm) and extra-short (≤ 5.5 mm) implants have reached dentistry to provide a solution to vertical atrophies in a minimally invasive way with higher predictability rates than bone augmentation techniques and to insertion of implants of “conventional” length. Even so, there are some occasions where residual bone volume is so limited that extra-short implants cannot be inserted directly. In these cases, these implants must be used with other accessory techniques (vertical growth, union to bone graft, sinus lift), which increases the invasiveness and morbidity of the cases, losing part of the advantages attributed to short implants. and extra short. As a result of this need to achieve a minimally invasive approach in cases of greater bone resorption, extra-short implants of less than 5 mm are born. Within this group of implants we can also find implants smaller than 5 mm that make up the group of extra-short implants, opening the range of possibilities for the treatment of severe atrophies in height, generating a new approach when facing the more complex cases. These implants can even be placed supracrestally, becoming an option for cases of atrophy up to 3 mm in height.

In the present work, a clinical case treated with implants of 4.5 mm in length is shown, describing the technique for their insertion and rehabilitation in a predictable way.

Eduardo Anitua in Silvia Leal’s “Trends” podcast

Dr. Anitua has participated in the podcast series “Trends”, a project by Silvia Leal together with BCC Digital. These are several programs on future trends and technology that will address issues related to digital transformation, science, culture and employment.

Experts from different fields participate in each of the podcasts that make up the series who, with their testimony, will help us understand how technology is changing (and will change even more) our way of being, living and doing business.

The project will be presented this Thursday, February 18 at 6:00 p.m. in tendenciasconsilvialeal.com

Article by Eduardo Anitua in the January issue of Gaceta Dental

Dr. Eduardo Anitua signs the article “4.5 mm long implants for the direct rehabilitation of extreme vertical atrophies”, published in the Science and Clinic section of the January issue of Gaceta Dental magazine.

The article shows how short implants are already one more of the atrophic maxilla rehabilitation techniques that can be considered “routine”, being a minimally invasive option and with survival figures of around 99%. With these implants it is possible to rehabilitate posterior sectors with vertical atrophy in both the maxilla and the mandible.

Even so, there are cases with extreme atrophy, where the residual bone volume does not allow the direct insertion of extra-short implants, nor those of shorter length (5.5 mm). For these situations, the best option described in the literature is bone augmentation using different regeneration techniques (block grafts, distraction, and mainly guided bone regeneration).

To solve these situations in a minimally invasive way, implants of 4 and 4.5 mm in length are born. With this new length, new challenges can be faced in the mandible and maxilla with a residual bone height of less than 5 mm without the need to apply accessory techniques. In the present clinical case, a minimally invasive approach to a posterior mandibular sector with 5.5 and 4.5 mm implants is shown.
