This observation stimulated the idea that a cloth tube might also heal by being populated by the tissues of the body. Perhaps such a healing reaction in a tube could be used to replace an artery? His first experimental vascular grafts were sewn from a silk handkerchief and then parachute fabric (Vinyon N), using his wife’s sewing machine. The first human implant of a prosthetic vascular graft was in 1952. The patient lived many years after this procedure, inspiring many surgeons to copy the procedure.

Smith-Petersen, in 1925, explored the use of a glass hemisphere to fit over the ball of the hip joint. This failed Some “prehistory” of dental implants has been described above. In 1809, Maggiolo implanted a gold post anchor into fresh extraction sockets. After allowing this to heal, he affixed to it a tooth. This has remarkable similarity to modern dental implant procedures. In 1887, this procedure was used with a platinum post. Gold and platinum gave poor long-term results, and so this procedure A HISTORY OF BIOMATERIALS xlv FIGURE 3 Left: Sir John Charnley.
