In nasal surgery, cartilage or bone transplants are required for support or correction of cosmetic deformities. When autogenous material is readily available, it should be used in preference to homogenous or heterogenous material. Sometimes this means, however, an iliac bone or rib cartilage graft. These procedures have a certain morbidity and the grafts are not always readily accepted by the patient. For this reason, there is a place for heterografts, especially when their antigenicity is reduced. Embryo calf bone and cartilage can be specially treated by lyophilisation and surface active agents to reduce its antigenicity (Dingwall and Millonig, 1964) and this material has been used in the present clinical study.
