Reconstruction Strategies of the Ureter and Urinary Diversion Using Tissue Engineering Approaches.
It is indicated that regeneration of ureteral tissue and the formation of a urinary diversion using TE approaches are possible, although it is currently very time-consuming and complex to achieve well-developed neotissue. Expand
Onlay Repair Technique for the Management of Ureteral Strictures: A Comprehensive Review
Tissue engineering-based Ureteroplasty through the implantation of patched scaffolds, such as the small intestine submucosa, with or without cell seeding, has induced successful ureteral regeneration structurally close to that of the native ureters and has resulted in good functional outcomes in animal models. Expand
Electrospinning: Application and Prospects for Urologic Tissue Engineering
The current status of tissue engineering in each organ is presented, electrospun scaffolds from the simplest to the most intricate designs are presented, and the outcomes of preclinical (animal) studies in this area are summarized. Expand


Tissue Engineering and Ureter Regeneration: Is it Possible?
This review presents tissue engineering achievements in the field of Ureter regeneration focusing on the scaffold, the cells, and ureter healing. Expand
Ureteral tissue engineering: where are we and how to proceed?
It is concluded that the available literature is inconclusive since the superiority of a specific scaffold has not been demonstrated and the latest developments of regenerative medicine have not been evaluated in ureteral tissue engineering yet. Expand
Ureteral Reconstruction Using Autologous Tubular Grafts for the Management of Ureteral Strictures and Defects: An Experimental Study
Results show that autologous tubular tissue grown within the recipients’ peritoneal cavity can be used for ureteral reconstruction in the beagle model. Expand
Tubular Constructs as Artificial Urinary Conduits.
This work introduces a straightforward 2-step procedure to create artificial urinary conduits in a large animal model and results resulted in a vascularized autologous tube, which may potentially replace bowel in standard urinary diversions. Expand
Ureteral injuries: external and iatrogenic.
The urologist should be familiar with several methods for identifying ureteral injuries and should make evaluations tailored to the clinical situation. Expand
Principles of ureteric reconstruction
The principles of ureteric reconstruction are not different from those of reconstructive urology in the rest of the urinary system. The importance of ensuring good vascular supply, complete excisionExpand
Clinical protocol levels are required in laboratory animal surgery when using medical devices: experiences with ureteral replacement surgery in goats
The use of a ureteral J-stent for the evaluation of biodegradable tubular constructs for tissue reconstruction, and the regeneration of ureters in Saanen goats indicates that blind stent placement was not possible in goats. Expand
Organ-specific tubular and collagen-based composite scaffolds.
This study explored several methodologies for the construction of collagenous tubular scaffolds and films with defined (ultra)structure, length, diameter, orientation, and molecular composition and found handling and suturability were found adequate for tissue engineering applications. Expand
Construction of ureteral grafts by seeding bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells and smooth muscle cells into bladder acellular matrix.
BACKGROUND Congenital or acquired abnormalities may cause an ureteral injury or defect. The main methods to reconstruct a long ureter often cause serious complications. In this study, we sought toExpand
Bladder Regeneration Using a Smart Acellular Collagen Scaffold with Growth Factors VEGF, FGF2 and HB-EGF.
Whether smart acellular collagen-heparin scaffolds with growth factors VEGF, FGF2, and HB-EGF enhance bladder tissue regeneration and bladder capacity in a large animal model of diseased bladder is investigated. Expand
