BACKGROUND Patients with end-stage bladder disease can be treated with cystoplasty using gastrointestinal segments. The presence of such segments in the urinary tract has been associated with many complications. We explored an alternative approach using autologous engineered bladder tissues for reconstruction. METHODS Seven patients with myelomeningocele, aged 4-19 years, with high-pressure or poorly compliant bladders, were identified as candidates for cystoplasty. A bladder biopsy was… Expand
Tissue engineered cystoplasty augmentation for treatment of neurogenic bladder using small intestinal submucosa: an exploratory study.
TLDR
Tissue engineering technology provides a potentially viable option for genitourinary reconstruction in patients with neurogenic bladder and small intestinal submucosa can be used as a scaffold for rebuilding a functional bladder. Expand
Tissue-engineered autologous urethras for patients who need reconstruction: an observational study
TLDR
Tissue-engineered tubularised urethras can be engineered and remain functional in a clinical setting for up to 6 years and showed that the engineered grafts had developed a normal appearing architecture by 3 months after implantation. Expand
Local and systemic effects of a tissue engineered neobladder in a canine cystoplasty model.
TLDR
Implantation of polymer molds seeded with autologous bladder cells did not show significant local or systemic toxicity in a canine model, suggesting that such engineered neobladders are safe and effective for reconstructive surgery. Expand
Urinary bladder augmentation with acellular biologic scaffold-A preclinical study in a large animal model.
TLDR
BAM seems to be a promising biomaterial for reconstruction of large urinary bladder wall defects in a long-term porcine model and further research on cell-seeded BAM to enhance urinary bladder regeneration is required. Expand
Augmentation cystoplasty in the patient with neurogenic bladder
TLDR
Enterocystoplasty remains the gold standard for AC, though more research is needed to better evaluate the morbidity of different surgical techniques and the indications for concomitant surgeries. Expand
Tissue-engineered tubular graft for urinary diversion after radical cystectomy in rabbits.
TLDR
It was feasible that TETG constructed using bladder epithelial cells and BAM for urinary diversion after radical cystectomy in rabbits and intravenous urography showed that there were no obstructions in TETGs. Expand
Bladder Bioengineering: Our Experience
TLDR
Bladder regeneration is feasible by tissue engineering techniques in animal models and in humans, but functional and histological results are not as with normal bladder wall. Expand
Bladder tissue engineering: a literature review.
TLDR
This review of recently published articles allows us to forecast the characteristics of efficient and safe bladder biomaterials and suggests bladder tissue engineering is a promising approach to bladder reconstruction. Expand
Alloplastic bladder substitution: are we making progress?
TLDR
A comprehensive review of the literature was performed using the Medline National Library of Medicine database and Google Scholar to provide a summary of the evolution of alloplastic bladder substitution. Expand
Transplantation of Autologous Differentiated Urothelium in an Experimental Model of Composite Cystoplasty
TLDR
The study endorses the potential for composite cystoplasty by successfully developing reliable techniques for transplanting urothelium onto a prepared, vascularised, smooth muscle segment and creating a functional u rothelium-lined augmentation to overcome the complications of conventional enterocystoplasta.

Bladder augmentation using allogenic bladder submucosa seeded with cells.
TLDR
Results show that allogenic bladder submucosa seeded with cells appears to be an excellent option as a biomaterial for bladder augmentation. Expand
Bladder reconstruction—from cells to materials
TLDR
If tissue-engineered products are to have therapeutic application in bladder reconstruction, a number of issues remain to be addressed; these issues are discussed briefly below. Expand
Alloplastic replacement of the urinary bladder.
TLDR
The positive outcome of these animal experiments suggests this prosthesis would be useful for human bladder substitution, and standardized industrial production of the prostheses will be needed prior to implantation in humans. Expand
Reproduction of functional smooth muscle tissue and partial bladder replacement.
TLDR
The bladder acellular matrix graft (BAMG) appears to serve, without rejection, as a framework of collagen and elastin for the ingrowth of all bladder wall components. Expand
Bladder reconstruction using a prevascularized capsular tissue seeded with urothelial cells.
TLDR
Vascularized prefabricated flaps lined with culture derived urothelial cells were successfully used for bladder reconstruction in a rat model and may provide a method for future reconstruction of the genitourinary systems. Expand
Transitional cell carcinoma of the bladder following augmentation cystoplasty for the neuropathic bladder.
TLDR
This study supports the hypothesis that bladder augmentation appears to be an independent risk factor for TCC, with a lag time of less than 20 years. Expand
Tissue Engineering in the Genitourinary System
In general, genitourinary tissue has traditionally been replaced with autologous tissues harvested from other sites of the body (Atala and Retik, 1994). However, these approaches rarely replace theExpand
Gastrocystoplasty: long-term complications in 22 patients.
TLDR
Long-term results differ from those of others in the number of late complications (36 versus 21.8%) and cast serious doubt on the long-term advantages of using stomach for bladder augmentation. Expand
A rabbit model to tissue engineer the bladder.
TLDR
A rabbit model was used for the evaluation of a collagen-based biomatrix of small intestinal submucosa (SIS, COOK) in comparison to a biochemically reconstructed biom atrix for bladder tissue regeneration, which shows considerable encrustation. Expand
Reversed seromuscular flaps in the urinary tract in dogs.
TLDR
The results demonstrate that the use of reversed seromuscular flaps in the urinary tract in dogs results in good re-epithelialization of the serosal surface with transitional cells but also flap contraction, largely due to the trauma of mucosal stripping and not urine contact. Expand
