Great to see you online Alexandros!

I don't think it's perfed, just ledged; but we'll see where this goes.  
I'm a great fan of showing the oddest things I can with the most unusual 
treatment considerations.   Please don't ever consider what I suggest
to be a cardinal rule.    I break rules when I see fit.   I found this 
case to be an interesting opportunity to discuss the appropriate time 
to judge failure.

Here are some good follow-up questions for this puzzle case:

1.  How soon do you determine a case as failed?  1 week, 1 month, 
    2 months, 3 months, 6 months, 1 year or longer?
2   Do you extend the period of healing/failure if it is your case? :)
3.  What demarcates a failue? .....are you more liberal about 
    condemning a treatment if it is yours?
