Abstract

In order to give answers to some questions in allograft surgery the clinical results of 14 patients after a long follow-up time were reviewed. The other objects of interest were: the incorporation and regeneration of the grafts, their metabolism, late radiological changes, and immunological aspects. Biochemical composition was studied in experiments on dogs.
