The author discusses academic fraud and unethical behavior in oral implantology clinical trials. He focuses on a 2007-2008 randomised controlled trial (RCT) of the use of short dental implants in patients with augmented sinuses, noting his discovery that the trial had not been approved by an ethical committee. He states that the "European Journal of Oral Implantology" will not publish manuscripts from questionable trials.
