Abstract: Heinz-Lewy type a priori estimates are derived for the absolute values of the second derivatives of solutions $ z(x,y) \in {C^{1,1}}(\Omega )$ of Monge-Ampère equations of the general form

$\displaystyle Ar + 2Bs + Ct + (rt - {s^2}) = E$

in the interior of the domain $ \Omega $. The coefficients $ A,B,C,E$ depend in particular on the gradient of $ z(x,y)$ and satisfy certain structural conditions.
