The results of clinical and experimental morphological studies of regenerates forming after replacement of large defects of the abdominal wall and tibia with implants from different materials (polytetrafluoroethylene, reperene, prolene, titanium, and titanium nickelide) are analyzed. Study of the regenerate histology and fibroarchitectonics has shown good prospects of mesh constructions from titanium nickelide for effective surgical repair of these defects. The use of this implant seems to be theoretically well-based and promising, particularly under conditions of suppurative infection and low individual reparative regenerative potential.
