The technique of deep-freezing in liquid nitrogen of stripped saphenous veins permitted their long-term preservation, and the subsequent creation of a "bank" of venous allografts, used for arteriovenous internal shunts for hemodialysis. Histological, histochemical and immunological tests, and first clinical results have been favorable.
