Blood vessel transplantation to bone.
Hori Y, Tamai S, Okuda H, Sakamoto H, Takita T, Masuhara K.
In dogs an artery, a vein, and a vascular bundle were transplanted
into intact bone, isolated bone segments, necrotized bone, and
homografts of bone. Active proliferation of new blood vessels and
formation of new bone occurred in all instances where the vascular
bundle was used, when the vein was implanted into the intact bone and
isolated bone, and only when the artery was implanted into intact
bone. As a result of these experiments, vascular bundle
transplantation has been performed in patients with Kienboeck's
disease, and avascular necrosis of the scaphoid, the femoral head, the
talus, and other conditions.
