Abstract : Experimental surgery was performed on dogs to unite the completely amputated leg after artificial perfusion. It was found that the incidence of successful reunion decreased as the amputated period was prolonged. No reunion was possible if the amputated period exceeded 2 hours. Histological changes in muscle fibers developed 2 hours after amputation. Oxygen consumption was kept at nearly control level in legs without circulation for 4 hours. (Author)
