A study was carried out to investigate the biological fate of spongy polyurethane aortic prostheses after a period of implantation of 7 to 10 years in dogs. The present findings indicate that this material is in a sense accepted by the organism (not only tolerated) because almost complete reorganization of the arterial elastic structures inside the prostheses and the formation of arterial branches from the prostheses were observed.
