Boneharvesting: compromised donor Site
Todays Bone-rebuilding case:
The patient underwent orthodontic surgery (dorsal impaction of the mandible) 35 years ago, so we had nearly no linea obliqua to harvest a cortical bone block. The mobilization of the block was quite difficult without fracturing the very thin mandibula.
The augmentation followed the principles of Khoury's Technique.
To reconstruct the retromolar area i put one slice of the block back in the donor site to allow perfect regeneration.
How do you reconstruct the donor site?
