Double-layered closure of oroantral fistula using buccal fat pad and buccal advancement flap



Double-layered closure of oroantral fistula using buccal fat pad and buccal advancement flap



Journal of Natural Science Biology and Medicine 3(2): 203-205



Some of the traditional methods that are being employed in the repair of oroantral communication can be broadly divided into local and distant flaps. Recently, because of various advantages, buccal fat pad is increasingly being employed in the repair of oroantral fistula and other oral defects worldwide. However, there are some problems that can be encountered while harvesting BFP which has to be taken care of. In this paper, we present a case with one of such problems, its management, and review of literature on the same.
