ZAGA Course


Throughout three days of an intensive course, a description of our experience of more than 25 years with zygomatic implants in the rehabilitation of the extremely resorbed maxilla will be shared. The participants will acquire knowledge regarding the use of zygomatic implants in different anatomic setups and their related prosthetic rehabilitation. We will discover different surgical techniques and their benefits and limitations including the classic intra-sinusal technique, the extra-sinusal technique up to the ZAGA philosophy. We will provide detailed insights into the latter in order to prevent surgical and prosthetic complications. Live surgery along with immediate prosthetic delivery will be performed and commented. Moreover, virtual zygomatic planning and hands-on training in customized artificial phantoms will be made available. Finally, individual surgical training on cryopreserved human heads will be offered.

Pendant trois jours d’un cours intensif, nous partagerons une description de notre expérience de plus de 25 ans avec des implants zygomatiques pour la réhabilitation du maxillaire atrophique. Les participants acquerront des connaissances sur l’utilisation des implants zygomatiques dans différentes configurations anatomiques et leur rééducation prothétique associée.

One of the most structured and well delivered courses i ve seen. Carlos Aparicio is an outstanding surgeon and an amazing educator. Evidence based ZAGA success code will definitely re-establish the role of the Zygomatic implants as a real alternative therapeutic option for the rehabilitation of the severely atrophic Maxilla.
I am looking forward to working closely with Dr Carlos Aparicio and his ZAGA team in the future. Thank you everyone and particulary David Pastorino for making this course possible.

Great course, well planned, well executed. The philosophy behind the course which makes the patient the main focus is really great and makes you wants to adopt it. Finally, lovely and enthusiastic community I want to be part of.

Dr Moustafa Taha

Each participant had the opportunity to pre-plan their case on a real CBCT from a cadaver specimen. A stereolitographic model was provided to do the hands on practice. The final day the same cadaver specimen was use to place zygomatic implants with the ZAGA technique. Well done ZAGA centres!
