The aim of the study was to determine the level of leukocytes activation after the implantation of vascular graft. As an experimental model we used 20 dogs. The aorto-iliac unilateral graft (dacron 6 mm) was implanted to all animals. The adhesion and migration of the leukocytes was estimated postoperatively by scintigraphy using Tc99 labeled leukocytes. The increased migration and adhesion was found in both proximal and distal anastomoses till the 30th postoperative day and it was more intensive in the distal anastomosis.
