Post-traumatical malformations of bone are often reconstructed with the use of preserved bone allografts. At the Institute of Traumatology, Orthopaedics and Neurosurgery 495 patients were treated with use of preserved (frozen and radiation-sterilized) bone allografts. following trauma. between 1981 and 1995. Non union of bone and osteomyelitis were main reasons for allotransplantation of bone. Remodelling of bone allografts has been observed during 2-8 years after surgery. Substitution of allografts and good result of treatment were found in 80% of all cases. In paper the analysis of results of treatment is presented.
