Reoperations of the middle ear enable histological and morphometrical examination of explanted autogenetic or allogenetic ossicles. Histological and morphometric study of such ossicles showed a different osteogenesis. In autogenetic ossicles, angiogenetic and appositional osteogenesis could be seen; in allogenetic ones, angiogenesis was predominant.(More)
