Authors underscore the importance of research in vascular surgery progress and approach some basic aspects on the correct conduction of an experimental research in vascular surgery fields and in particular on synthetic prosthesis of different diameter. Some important aspects of the current Italian law on animal experimentation are shown because they could cause new changes either on methodology or animal selection. Finally some experimental models adopted in the department of experimental surgery of the Rizzoli Orthopaedic Institutes on vascular prosthesis are described.
