The present study was, therefore designed to investigate the effect of acellular matrix of swim bladder for cervical oesophagoplasty in rabbits.
Initiation of shrinkage of the graft and congestion surrounding the graft was observed in oesophagoplasty with fresh swim bladder graft on this day.

Amarpal, Singh B and Kumar A Gastric seromuscular autogenous graft for oesophagoplasty in dogs: Mechanical and histological study.
Balagopalan T P and Nayar M K N Efficacy of chrome processed aortic allograft for cervical oesophagoplasty in dogs.
Experimental cervical oesophagoplasty with chrome processed aortic allograft was performed in 12 dogs under general anaesthesia using triflupromazine hydrochloride and thiopentone sodium combination.
The present study was undertaken to evaluate the acceptability and functional efficacy of chrome processed aortic allograft following cervical oesophagoplasty in dogs.
The dilatation capacity (%) at the site of oesophagoplasty was assessed by filling it with water under pressure for maximum dilatation.
Healing at the oesophagoplasty site was evaluated based on (a) color and appearance of the grafted site (b) degree of epithelialization (c) degree of absorption of suture material and (d) complications on healing if any.
Amarpal et al (7) reported the occurrence of adhesion between graft and neighbouring muscles as early as 7th postoperative day following cervical oesophagoplasty using gastric seromuscular autogenous grafts in dogs.
Mean values of biomechanical properties of normal oesophagus and the site of oesophagoplasty are given in table I.
