Abstract:

Tissue engineering of the small intestine offers a novel treatment for patients with short bowel syndrome. Its anatomical and functional complexity make this particularly challenging. Current techniques are based on use of synthetic or biological scaffolds with guided tissue regeneration or tissue engineering or both of these. This chapter covers the approaches to tissue engineering of the small intestine, scaffold types and selection, guided tissue regeneration of the small intestine, the different cell seeding sources and the process of combining cells and scaffolds. Finally different ...
