Knitted Dacron arterial prostheses were occluded by Perspex rods and allowed to become organized by connective tissue while embedded in the tissues of rabbits and dogs. In dogs one organized prosthesis was grafted into the aorta with its blood supply intact while another was left undisturbed as a control. Later the linings of these tubes were examined by light microscopy and electron microscopy. During their sojourn in large arteries the connective tissue linings of the grafts developed a… CONTINUE READING
