This thesis includes a short history of experimental and clinical bone transplantation. Two hundred and fourteen animal experiments are described in which autogenous, homogenous, heterogenous and preserved bone transplantations were made into bone, muscle and the anterior chamber of the eye and the specimens removed at intervals varying from ten days to six months. X-Rays were taken of the transplants in situ and of the specimens on removal and histological examination of prepared sections was carried out and recorded. The results are discussed under the headings of survival capacity, repopulation of transplants, and osteogenesis. Conclusions are stated based on the findings.
