Hi DR salama
This is a 30 years old male patient that I did horizontal bone augmentation with particulated autogenous bone and xenograft 50/50 utilizing screws 1.6mm as a tent and titanium reinforced membranes with tack fixation and simultaneously 2 open sinus grafting in both side.I closed the flap tension free with PTFE sutures but after 2 weeks an exposured area created in anterior area and I put my effort to close the wound 3 times.Unfortunately,I could not succeed in closing the flap and the flap began to open widely as it is illustrated so I decided to remove the membranes.My question is about what decision should I make to manage my graft material after removing the membranes???If the graft material was sufficient yet,should I place another membrane such as low resorbing collagen membrane which remain in the region for upcoming 6 months or not???
