Abstract

The genitourinary system is constantly exposed to different adverse conditions that can lead to various degrees of structural and functional damage. Recent advances in regenerative medicine and tissue engineering have provided new therapeutic options for many patients. While several therapies have been successfully applied in the clinic, the majority of technologies are still in the development stage. It is anticipated that more of these developments will mature into therapies over time. This chapter gives an overview of current and new therapeutic developments in the genitourinary system.
