Abstract

Repair and reconstruction of damaged tissues and organs has been a major issue in the medical field. Regenerative medicine and tissue engineering, as rapid evolving technologies, may offer alternative treatments and hope for patients with serious defects and end-stage diseases. Most urologic diseases could benefit from the development of regenerative medicine and tissue engineering. This article discusses the role of cells and materials in regenerative medicine, as well as the status of current role of regenerative medicine for the generation of specific urologic organs.
