Role of decalcified (0.6 N HC1) homo-grafts preserved in 0.5 per cent formalin at room temperature in bridging large osteoperiosteal gaps in the rabbit’s ulna is presented. The successful results with clinical, radiological and histological evidence of neo-osteogenesis across the host graft junction and reincorporation of the graft was seen in 28.57 per cent of animals only. However, partial success with histological evidence of neo-osteogenesis and reincorporation of the graft with or without clinico-radiological evidence of neo-osteogenesis of one of the host graft junction was seen in 64.28 per cent of animals, 7.14 per cent of animals were considered failures. Further studies to improve the osteogenic potential of this material are warranted.
