homologous graft a graft of tissue obtained from the body of another animal of the same species but with a genotype differing from that of the recipient; called also allograft and homograft.
inlay graft a skin graft or mucosal graft applied by spreading the graft over a stent and suturing the graft and mold into a prepared pocket.
isogeneic graft (isologous graft) (isoplastic graft) syngraft.
lamellar graft replacement of the superficial layers of an opaque cornea by a thin layer of clear cornea from a donor eye.
mesh graft a type of split-thickness graft in which many tiny splits have been made in the skin to allow it to be stretched to cover a larger area.
Mesh skin graft applied to the leg. From McQuillan et al., 2002.
Ollier-Thiersch graft a very thin skin graft in which long, broad strips of skin, consisting of the epidermis, rete, and part of the corium, are used.
omental graft a segment of omentum and its supplying vasculature, transplanted as a free flap to another area and revascularized by anastomosis of arteries and veins.
pedicle graft pedicle flap.
penetrating graft a full-thickness corneal transplant.
periosteal graft a piece of periosteum to cover a denuded bone.
Phemister graft a bone graft of cortical bone with cancellous bone chips to enhance callus formation.
pinch graft a small piece of skin graft, partial or full thickness, obtained by elevating the skin with a needle and slicing it off with a knife.
porcine graft a split-thickness graft of skin from a pig, applied to a denuded area on a human as a temporary dressing for treatment of a severe burn.
sieve graft a skin graft from which tiny circular islands of skin are removed so that a larger denuded area can be covered, the sievelike portion being placed over one area, and the individual islands over surrounding or other denuded areas.
skin graft a piece of skin transplanted to replace a lost portion of skin; see also skin grafting.
split-skin graft (split-thickness graft) a skin graft consisting of the epidermis and a portion of dermis.
Diagram of a cross-section of the skin, demonstrating split thickness and full thickness skin grafts. From Roberts and Hedges, 1991.
syngeneic graft syngraft.
thick-split graft a skin graft consisting of the epidermis and about two thirds of the dermis.

1. The transfer of an organ or other tissue (skin, bone, muscle, tendon, nerve, arterial or venous segments) as grafts or vascularized (by pedicle or microanastomosis) structures from one location to another in the same person (for example, a kidney moved from its original position to the pelvis, where the iliac vessels provide vascular supply).
2. The performance of an autograft.
Synonym(s): autografting

However, it has limitations as the root of the donor tooth has to be two thirds to three quarters formed, besides of anatomic concerns once about 60% of autotransplanted teeth were dissimilar in appearance with regard to an asymmetric gingival width or a color mismatch (26, 28).
When parathyroid glands could not be preserved in situ, they were sliced and autotransplanted into the sternocleidomastoid muscle.
In addition, we found that autotransplanted women had ovarian volumes similar to those observed in women after a corresponding interval from the physiological menopause, whereas the ovarian volumes of allo-HSCT were lower, suggesting greater damage to the ovarian tissue (Figure 1) 11].
(1990) carried out a long-term study of 370 autotransplanted premolar teeth to determine a standardised surgical procedure which op-timised pulpal and periodontal healing.15,16,17 Although there is published variations for the surgical technique of auto-transplantation the consistent message is one of a careful atrau- matic surgical technique to maximally preserve an intact periodontal ligament.
They were divided into two groups; 97 patients in Group A had parathyroid glands preserved in situ, while 291 patients in Group B had at least one parathyroid gland autotransplanted in ipsilateral sternocleidomastoid muscle.
After 24 hours of perfusion preservation, kidneys were removed from the pump and autotransplanted into the original donor animal as previously described [4].

In another study, it was also shown that MSCs are unable to avoid detection by the innate immune system and that cell culture conditions alone may impart a change in MSCs that allows innate recognition of autotransplanted MSCs [52].
Teeth were excluded from the study if: they had not been replanted; were lost to follow-up; had been followed for less than a year; had sustained a root or crown fracture; had been autotransplanted; or had sustained subsequent trauma after replantation.
