Here are all the images of the first surgery from one of my first yr postdocs......
#11. Draining sinus tract. CaOH for 1 month until she finally returned for surgery.
Obturation and surgery in same visit. Pt. returned today one week after surgery to have
her sutures removed. It took me some time to suture under the microscope
but it payed off. I am happy with the healing but the tissue adaptation could have
been a little bit better. I scheduled her to have a correct restoration placed and
also asked her about the temporary on #9 but she left it at home and didn't
want me to do anything... Benedict

Lovely documentation and execution. Couple of questions.
Why the decision to go to surgery after only a month of Ca(oh)2?
Would a longer period of Ca(oh)2 not have got the tract
Is there a path report from the lesion?
What material have you packed the crypt with? Are people still
using Telfa pads for this rather than cotton? - Bill
