Fifteen pelvic extremities from adult dogs were used to perform 60 cross tunnelization of tibial diaphysis with a wire having a pointed groove, 1.8-mm in diameter, at 1,500 rpm. Thirty five leg X-ray films in the lateral projection, which show changes on days 30, 60, 90, 120, 520 after the experiment, were studied. Bony diaphysis tunnelization was found to give rise to a regeneration focus wherein an area of tissue element degradation and an area of introduction of bony fragments into soft tissues were detectable. Changes in the regeneration focus were determined by a response to osseous fragments, which involved the formation of an bony regenerate during a month and to the resorption of the bony matter of an osseous regenerate and osseous fragments in future. Healing of diaphysis defects began with the resorption of a damaged cortical layer. Osteogenesis prevailed at month 2 and ensured healing of cortical layer defects following 4-6 months.
