The incorporation of Solcograft was studied experimentally and clinically. The graft was found to facilitate the formation of continuous endothelium which starts at the vessel graft boundary and from newly formed capillaries. Transmission and scanning microscopic investigations revealed neointima, neomedia and neoadventitia formation in 3 - 4 months. Complications such as obliteration were infrequent. Aneurysm formation did not occur and the patency rate was satisfactory. Experience in 20 clinical cases is reported in detail. As to its usefulness in reconstructive vascular surgery, Solcograft comes next to the saphenous graft. The graft is particularly suitable for patch plasties.
