Abstract

Congenital abnormalities and acquired disorders can lead to organ damage or loss of tissue within the genitourinary tract. For reconstructive purposes, tissue-engineering efforts are currently underway for virtually every type of tissue and organ within the urinary tract. Tissue engineering incorporates the fields of cell transplantation, materials science and engineering for the purpose of creating functional replacement tissue. This article reviews some of the principles of tissue engineering and some of the applications of these principles to the genitourinary tract.
