In this experimental study cryopreserved arteries were used as autografts and as allografts with or without immunosuppression with cyclosporine A. METHODS In group A (three dogs, six bilateral grafts) cryopreserved carotid artery autografts were implanted. In groups B and C female mongrel dogs (three dogs and six bilateral grafts in each group) received cryopreserved male carotid artery allografts… CONTINUE READING
