Clinical applications of the musculoskeletal system tissue bank are currently enlarging in areas such as tumour surgery, spine surgery and arthrodesis, reconstructive procedures of the hip joint and ligament repair. We report our experience about the use of more than 1,000 grafts utilize from 1987 to 1992.
We concluded that a bone bank or a musculoskeletal system tissue bank has a great usefulness in different reconstructive surgery technics and arthrodesis. They are used more frequently in orthopaedic and traumatology surgery improving the development of this surgery.
