Abstract

Regenerative medicine has opened new avenues for treating patients with severe reproductive system disorders, such as congenital abnormalities, cancer, trauma, infection, inflammation and iatrogenic injuries. Over the past two decades, scientists have advanced the field of reproductive tissue engineering to restore normal sexual function and preserve fertility in both female and male patients. In this review, we summarize recent advances in the use of cell, tissue, and organ-based regenerative medicine strategies for clinical application in reproductive system disorders.
