Abstract

RAISER, Alceu Gaspar et al. ORTHOTOPIC HOMOLOGOUS COMMON CALCANEOUS TENDON GRAFT IN DOGS: CONSERVATION, ASEPSIS AND IMPLANTATION. Cienc. Rural [online]. 2001, vol.31, n.1, pp. 89-94. ISSN 0103-8478.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0103-84782001000100014.

An experimental model of conservation, asepsis and implantation of homologous glycerine 98%-stored tendon graft is presented in order to evaluate the tissue reaction to implantation in 48 dogs. Grafts were preverved in sterile glycerin from 45 days to six months period. Before implantation grafts were placed in isotônic saline with iodine, during 24h period for rehydration and asepsis. Clinical evaluation and histopathologic analisis of biopsies were made at 11st , 22nd, 44th and 132nd post-operative day. There was not evidence of infection or graft rejection. Orthotopic homologous glycerine-stored tendon graft are indicated in reconstructive tendon surgery.

Keywords : surgery; trauma; graft; transplantation.
