Cartilage and bone tissue engineering for reconstructive head and neck surgery
The loss of cartilage and bone because of congential defects, trauma and after tumor resection is a major clinical problem in head and neck surgery. The most prevalent methods of tissue repair areExpand
Tissue engineering in otorhinolaryngology.
Tissue engineering is a field of research with interdisciplinary cooperation between clinicians, cell biologists, and materials research scientists. Many medical specialties apply tissue engineeringExpand
Cartilage tissue engineering using resorbable scaffolds
Cartilage tissue engineering holds considerable promise for orthopaedic and reconstructive head and neck surgery. With an increasingly ageing population, the number of patients affected by arthritisExpand
Adenosine Triphosphatase Expression Correlates with Ciliary Activity of Respiratory Epithelium in vitro
In vitro culture of respiratory epithelium is of great utility for pharmacological investigations and tissue engineering. Up to now, the degree of differentiation of respiratory cells cultured inExpand
Regenerative medicine/cellular engineering for diseases of the head and neck.
547 REGENERATIVE MEDICINE has the objective to enhance regenerative capabilities in humans, and promises to play a key role in the practice of medicine in the 21st century. There is an obvious wideExpand
Tissue Engineering of Human Salivary Gland Organoids
Radiation therapy for malignant head and neck tumours is mainly responsible for inadvertent damage of the salivary glands. Xerostomia is the major symptom of this condition, with consequentExpand

[Cell-based strategies for salivary gland regeneration].
Xerostomia as a side effect of radiotherapy or due to Sjögren's disease leads to considerable impairment of the quality of life of the affected patients. Preventive treatment approaches such asExpand
[Growth of human respiratory epithelium on collagen foil].
BACKGROUND Clinical application of bioartificial tracheal prosthesis must still be regarded as an experimental concept because restoration of a functional respiratory epithelium outlining theExpand
Tissue-Engineering von respiratorischem Epithel
ZusammenfassungFunktionsfähiges Trachealepithel lässt sich chirurgisch bisher nicht wiederherstellen. Daher ist die Züchtung von respiratorischem Epithel (rE) mittels Tissue-Engineering vonExpand
