Bladder tissue regeneration

F. Wezel and J. Southgate,    University of York, UK

Abstract:

This chapter reviews recent developments for novel regenerative medicine approaches for urinary bladder reconstruction. The chapter introduces clinical requirements for functional tissue replacement and discusses the use of synthetic and natural matrices for bladder reconstruction. It then describes the application of cell-seeded bio-matrices using adult progenitor and stem cells and provides an outlook for future directions in bladder tissue engineering, such as the use of multi- or pluri-potent stem cell sources.
