  • donor organs
  • In the coming years, due to the aging of the population and the low availability of donor organs there will be urgent need for bioengineering solutions to assist, mimic or replace failing patient organs. (utwente.nl)
  • In order to avoid removal of recipient organs when donor organs are not viable, it is standard procedure that the patient is not operated on until the donor organs arrive and are judged suitable, despite the time delay this involves. (wikipedia.org)
  • Once suitable donor organs are present, the surgeon makes an incision starting above and finishing below the sternum, cutting all the way to the bone. (wikipedia.org)
  • As the donor organs warm up to body temperature, the lungs begin to inflate. (wikipedia.org)
  • Once the donor organs are functioning normally, the heart-lung machine is withdrawn, and the chest is closed. (wikipedia.org)
  • sexes
  • The external sex organs - the genitals or genitalia , visible at birth in both sexes, and the internal sex organs are called the secondary sex organs. (wikipedia.org)
  • In typical prenatal development , sex organs originate from a common primordium during early gestation and differentiate into male or female sexes . (wikipedia.org)
  • mimic
  • Organ on chip technology aims at creating imitation active organs that mimic the complex and biological reactions of actual organs, keeping in mind the goal to examine drugs' action by exactly manipulating the cells and their microenvironments. (researchandmarkets.com)
  • Artificial: based on new biomaterials and novel designs, to assist or mimic a patient organ. (utwente.nl)
  • shortage
  • Atala believes this study will lead to much grander uses for regenerative medicine, a field that one day may be the solution to the nation's organ shortage . (popularmechanics.com)
  • artificial
  • To accomplish this, the artificial organs ought to be micro fabricated with an extracellular matrix (ECM) and different sorts of cells, and recapitulate morphogenesis, cell differentiation, and functions corresponding the local organ. (researchandmarkets.com)
  • This chair has the ambition, to take-on the challenge of helping the patients by developing (bio) artificial organs. (utwente.nl)
  • The complexity increases from artificial to bioartificial organs, and the engineering and regulatory demands increase further if these organs would be extracorporeal or implantable. (utwente.nl)
  • The chair of (bio) artificial organs addresses several of these challenges by developing an innovative research program, which combines a wide spectrum of disciplines: from molecule to organ. (utwente.nl)
  • Illustration of the disciplines within the chair of (Bio)artificial organs. (utwente.nl)
  • kidneys
  • Scientists have taken what may be a key step toward creating human organs such as livers and kidneys. (scientificamerican.com)
  • The problem, explains M.I.T.'s Mohammad Kaazempur-Mofrad, is that although conventional tissue engineering methods provide a scaffold for the cells of the tissue, they do not offer the vascular support necessary to nourish organs such as livers and kidneys. (scientificamerican.com)
  • vascular
  • Taking their cue from the body's own vascular system, researchers from M.I.T. and Harvard Medical School constructed a microscopic device capable of supplying oxygen and nutrients to organ cells. (scientificamerican.com)
  • The sensory organs include the area postrema (AP), the subfornical organ (SFO) and the vascular organ of lamina terminalis. (wikipedia.org)
  • Classified as a sensory circumventricular organ (along with the SFO and AP), the vascular organ of lamina terminalis (VOLT) is situated in the anterior wall of the third ventricle. (wikipedia.org)
  • Conversely, the vascular organ of the lamina terminalis maintains efferent projections to the stria medullaris and basal ganglia. (wikipedia.org)
  • As previously mentioned, the vascular organ of lamina terminalis features neurons responsible for the homeostatic conservation of osmolarity. (wikipedia.org)
  • inherent
  • In New York, where monkeys were commonly used by organ grinders, mayor Fiorello La Guardia banned the instruments from the streets in 1935, citing traffic congestion , the "begging" inherent in the profession, and organized crime 's role in renting out the machines. (wikipedia.org)
  • Advancement
  • Advancement in technology of organ on chip is capable of accelerating the speed of drug testing, producing more reliable data, and dropping the financial and ethical drawbacks of preclinical research will boost the market of organ on chip. (researchandmarkets.com)
  • Seven years later, according to a report in the British medical journal The Lancet, the implants were a success -paving the way for further advancement in laboratory-grown organs. (popularmechanics.com)
  • biological
  • Two or more organs working together in the execution of a specific body function form an organ system, also called a biological system or body system. (wikipedia.org)
  • Bioartificial: combining biomaterials and biological cells to fully replace failing patient organs. (utwente.nl)
  • Whereas
  • Whereas some organ grinders were very likely itinerants or vagabonds, many, certainly in New York, were Italian immigrants who chose to be street performers in order to support their families. (wikipedia.org)
  • include
  • The secretory organs include the subcommissural organ (SCO), the posterior pituitary, the pineal gland, the median eminence and the intermediate lobe of the pituitary gland. (wikipedia.org)
  • instrument
  • Die Orgel (griechisch ὄργανον órganon „Werkzeug, Instrument, Organ") ist ein über Tasten spielbares Musikinstrument. (wikimedia.org)
  • Two manufacturer plates can be confirmed : one is "Hammond Organ Mechanism Model BA" by Hammond Instrument Co., and the other is "Aeolian-Hammond Player model BA" by Aeolian-Skinner organ Co. Vail 2002, p. 69. (wikipedia.org)
