The loss or failure of an organ or tissue is one of the most frequent, devastating, and costly problems in human health care. A new field, tissue engineering, applies the principles of biology and engineering to the development of functional substitutes for damaged tissue. This article discusses the foundations and challenges of this interdisciplinary field and its attempts to provide solutions to tissue creation and repair.

Concepts of tissue engineering

Tissue Engineering and Its Potential Impact on Surgery

TLDR
This review outlines the opportunities and challenges of this emerging interdisciplinary field of tissue engineering and its attempts to provide solutions to tissue creation and repair and discusses the necessity of finding new strategies to achieve vascularization of complex tissues for transplant.

Biomaterials for tissue engineering applications.

TLDR
The pediatric community, therefore, provides a distinct challenge for the tissue engineering community and biomaterials are a fundamental component of tissue engineering, which aims to replace diseased, damaged, or missing tissue with reconstructed functional tissue.

Tissue engineering applied to reconstructive surgery

TLDR
A review of a small fraction of the areas in reconstructive surgery that can benefit from tissue engineering illustrates the abilities and knowledge of each to obtain results that could not be accomplished independently.

A decade of progress in tissue engineering

TLDR
Several major challenges laid down 10 years ago, have been studied, including renewable cell sources, biomaterials with tunable properties, mitigation of host responses, and vascularization.

Prospects for organ and tissue replacement.

TLDR
Advances in mechanical artificial organs and organ transplantation have improved the treatment of organ failure, and advances in molecular immunology, tissue engineering, and stem cell biology offer the promise of even better therapeutic modalities for treating organ failure in the future.

Bone Tissue Engineering

Tissue engineering's impact on dentistry.

TLDR
Three major tissue engineering strategies are described that aim to re-create functional, healthy tissues and organs in order to replace diseased, dying, or dead tissues.
