Subject: [roots] Failing retreatment followed by surgery
I thought this was an interesting case to share with you. This lady was referred
for retx of 25 because of history of AAA. I removed the existing root filling,
thoroughly cleaned & disinfected the canal and obturated with GP (warm vertical)
I could not achieve patency though. 6 months later she developed another abces
on that tooth an it was decided to surgerize it.
A large lesion was curetted, I resected quite some root because I wanted to go
past the lateral canal. US retroprep and MTA retrofill. Let's see if this will
solve the problem...
