Abstract

Tendons preserved by deep freezing, irradiation, storing in physiological saline solution at 4°C or in thiomersal were grafted into dogs and the recipient tendon stumps were analyzed by light, polarization and electron microscopy 1, 3 and 8 wk after transplantation. The best results were achieved with irradiated grafts preserved in physiological saline at 4°C. They recovered more quickly than the autologous grafts, and 8 wk after transplantation exhibited a tendon structure similar to the normal one. Reorganization of the grafts preserved in thiomersal was extremely slow, the decomposition of collagen fibres embedded in the degenerating ground substance retarded, with none or very rare fibrillar neogenesis. The functional capacity of the thiomersal grafts was inferior to the physiological saline grafts, probably because of cicatrization. Incorporation of deep frozen grafts was more enhanced than that of merthiolate treated ones, but significantly worse than that of irradiated tendons preserved in physiological saline at 4°C. The role of fibroblasts and of the ground substance in collagen fibre neoformation is also discussed.
