Artificial Organs (Artificial Organ)

Devices intended to replace non-functioning organs. They may be temporary or permanent. Since they are intended always to function as the natural organs they are replacing, they should be differentiated from PROSTHESES AND IMPLANTS and specific types of prostheses which, though also replacements for body parts, are frequently cosmetic (EYE, ARTIFICIAL) as well as functional (ARTIFICIAL LIMBS).

12/01/2011 - "This entirely artificial organ is comparable in size to the maximum capacity of natural bladders and is a replacement for diseased bladders, such those damaged by cancer. "
06/01/2013 - "A promising direction is the introduction into clinical practice: minimally invasive technologies, the concept of hybrid navigation surgery, operations with the use of laser technology and robotics, advanced and extremely extensive interventions to cancer patients; technology reduces blood loss, use of cell therapy, transplantation techniques, the development of the concept of organ transplantation, lost in combat trauma, the creation of artificial organs and tissues, the creation of personal protective equipment, integrated with a system of combat, etc."
07/01/1997 - "The answers draw a homogeneous picture: Cancer and dementia research as well as the development of materials for implantation and artificial organs are-in context of the demographic changes-of enormous relevance, whereas basic research receives less attention. "
02/01/2009 - "My current interests and my visions for the future include the following: (1) mass production of mature eggs and spermatozoa in vitro, (2) permanent sperm preservation at ambient temperature, (3) development of safer and more efficient assisted fertilization (reproduction) technologies, (4) development of safe and efficient methods of cloning, (5) production of artificial organs such as an artificial uterus, (6) development of safe and effective male contraceptives, and (7) prevention of cancer through germ cell research."
