  • These clinical results provide evidence that a tissue-engineering strategy including decellularisation of a [deceased donor] human trachea, autologous epithelial and stem-cell culture and differentiation, and cell-scaffold seeding with a bioreactor is safe and promising," the group wrote.

  • Hannah is the first child to receive a tissue-engineered trachea devoid of any donor cells, according to the Peoria, Ill.-based hospital. (go.com)
  • In July 2012, 13-year-old Ciaran Finn-Lynch became the first child to receive a donor trachea stripped of cells and re-seeded with his own . (go.com)
  • The initial case of a tissue-engineered trachea involved a 7-cm section of deceased donor tissue repeatedly washed in a solution to remove all the cells, leaving behind a scaffold on which the recipient's epithelial and stem cells were seeded. (medpagetoday.com)
  • transplant
  • Lung function and volumes and diffusion capacity remained normal until 44 months, when worsening cough and wheezing led to discovery of a sub-occlusive stenosis at the site of a subglottic resection done 4 years prior to the trachea transplant. (medpagetoday.com)
  • tissue
  • The trachea consists of a supporting layer of connective and muscular tissue in which are embedded from 16 to 20 U-shaped rings of hard cartilage that encircle the front of the tube. (factmonster.com)
  • LONDON -- Spanish doctors give a woman a new trachea with tissue grown from her own stem cells, which eliminates the need for anti-rejection drugs. (bio-medicine.org)

  • Doctors in Italy announced they have used patients' own stem cells to grow trachea tissue that led to seemingly successful transplanted windpipes in two patients diagnosed with trachea cancer. (go.com)
  • Doctors regenerated tissue from the patients' nose and bone marrow stem cells to create tracheas biologically identical to the patients' original organs. (go.com)
  • The connective tissue of the trachea, called adventitia, allows the trachea to change its position in the body. (healthmad.com)
  • The first tissue-engineered trachea implant has held up over 5 years without deterioration, immune reaction, or development of tumors, researchers reported. (medpagetoday.com)
  • This is a 5-year follow-up of a tissue-engineered trachea that was done to replace a main bronchus with malacia. (medpagetoday.com)
  • The tissue-engineered trachea remained open over its entire length, well vascularized, completely re-cellularized with respiratory epithelium, and had normal lung function. (medpagetoday.com)
  • The trachea recipient's scarring at the proximal anastomotic site wasn't surprising, especially as she already had a post-surgical stricture, but does point to the challenges of tissue engineering thin hollow organs, Russell added. (medpagetoday.com)
  • organ
  • Organ Trachea including diseases and disorders affecting the Trachea organ or body system. (bio-medicine.org)
  • According to Dr. Mark Iannettoni, head of the department of cardiothoracic surgery at University of Iowa, a trachea is a fragile organ because it is mostly cartilage, which has a poor blood supply. (go.com)
  • grown
  • The Museum plays a major role in encouraging children to pursue scientific careers - I was one of them, having grown up in London - and I hope that the engineering of a trachea will be an inspiration to future generations. (bristol.ac.uk)
