Abstract

Pathologic penile conditions often require reconstructive surgery. Due to the limited amount of autologous tissues available for reconstruction, other tissue substitutes have been used. Phallic reconstruction using engineered autologous genital tissue, i.e., tissue derived from the patient's own cells, may be preferable. In this article we describe tissue-engineering approaches that may be applicable to genital reconstruction.
