Post-extraction bone resorption is a key issue to handle.5 Several techniques have been employed to combat the issue of bone resorption that eventually leads to bridge failure and leads to pain and morbidity.5 Though it is reported that alveolar ridge's height is affected during the first three months after extraction.6,7 However, the clinical examination revealed excellent healing with bone formation (Figure 2B).

Tumor spread through alveolar spaces is frequently seen in lung resection specimens containing primary and metastatic tumors, and the concept that STAS is a form of aerogenous tumor spread rather than a histologic artifact is supported by several studies showing a significant correlation between STAS presence and decreased overall survival and/or increased risk of tumor recurrence in patients undergoing lung resections for primary lung adenocarcinomas.
