Abstract

The availability of bovine tendon material makes it potentially desirable for use in the repair of damaged tendons and ligaments in man. The use of bovine tendon, however, is limited by the immune response evoked by any xenograft and the problems of handling, sterility, and the initial and eventual mechanical strength of the graft. This paper describes the development of a bovine tendon xenograft which has been subjected to a chemical extraction procedure. This procedure selectively fractionates and removes cellular material and ground substance while leaving the collagen fibers of the graft relatively intact.
