Extra empty paragraphs are appeared after inserting one document into another using .NET

I have a problem when I try to replace placeholders in a word document with the content of other word documents.
After the placeholder is a line break, when I replace the placeholder, I have a second line break in the main document.
I think the second linebreak comes from the other document. But until now I have no idea to delete the second line break.

I uploaded threefiles.
The main documnet is “Verfahrensstammdaten.doc” with the placeholder
“{@10008; Textbaustein:Fallzustaendig_Detail@}”. This placeholder should be replaced with the content from the file “Fallzustaendig_Detail.doc”. The file “Ergebnis.doc” is the result.file.zip (17.3 KB)

For the replacement I use this peace of code:
document.Range.Replace(new Regex(platzhalterwert.Platzhalterinfo.Definition), string.Empty, new FindReplaceOptions(replaceHandler));

Please help.

There is one paragraph break in the subdoc and two paragraph breaks in the main document. Paragraph break from the subdoc is removed in the code, two empty paragraphs are left. To get the desired result please add paragraph break to the regex ("&p") as shown below.

doc.Range.Replace(new Regex("{@10008; Textbaustein:Fallzustaendig_Detail@}&p"), string.Empty, new FindReplaceOptions(replaceHandler));
