Autogenous bone definitely still the gold standard Histology to show the success
We hear many people on the podium talking about the fact that autogenous bone is not the gold standard any more and that synthetics are the answer to all our problems. This case IMHO is one I am preparing for a lecture on the Khoury Technique for the DentalXP Mastership program. The histology that I have done specially for the lecture again shows why autoigenous bone and especially the Khoury technique is and remains the GOLD STADARD in Bone AUGMENTATION. This case shows a vertical and horizontal bone augmentation using the Khoury plates with autogenous bone chip ONLY to replace the missing bone. one can see how beautifully the cortical bone is created with the plates and the bleeding new bmedullary bone created in between. The histology shows excellent vital bone with lacunae filled with osteocytes and mature bone formation after 4 months.
