Stem Cell Seeded Artificial Trachea and Bronchi

First Successful Transplantation of a Synthetic Tissue Engineered Windpipe (trachea)

  • An international team designed and built the nanocomposite tracheal scaffold and produced a specifically designed bioreactor used to seed the scaffold with the patient´s own stem cells. The cells were grown on the scaffold inside the bioreactor for two days before transplantation to the patient. Because the cells used to regenerate the trachea were the patient's own, there has been no rejection of the transplant and the patient is not taking immunosuppressive drugs.
