Maxillary sinus floor augmentation (MSFA) is an essential procedure for implant installation in the posterior maxillary area with vertical alveolar bone deficiency. For the past several decades, MSFA has been refined in terms of surgical methods along with technical progress, accumulation of clinical studies, and development of graft materials and surgical instruments. Although some complications in MSFA are inevitable in clinical situations, management of those complications in MSFA has been well established thanks to many clinicians and researchers. Nevertheless, some rare complications may arise and can result in fatal results. Therefore, clinicians should be well aware of such rare situations and complications associated with MSFA. In this review, the authors present several rare complications regarding MSFA, along with corresponding management strategies through a thorough review of the literature.
