Cardiovascular Tissue Engineering & Cell Therapy

Applications of the growing techniques and technologies in tissue engineering and cell therapy span virtually all clinical fields, but the major applications have emerged in the following:

  • Cardiovascular and Vascular
  • Neurological
  • Orthopedic
  • Urological
  • Skin/Integumentary
  • Dental
  • Organ Transplantation
  • Ophthalmology
  • Gastrointestinal
  • Ear, Nose and Throat/Respiratory/Cardiopulmonary
  • Cancer

One of the most promising fields, given the acute nature of the associated diseases, is cardiovascular medicine.  Below is a distribution of the applicable procedures by annual worldwide incidence for cardiovascular tissue engineering and cell therapy:
