DIEGO RODRIGUEZ, E. de et al. Current state of the tissue engineering in urology: Revision of the literature. Actas Urol Esp [online]. 2004, vol.28, n.9, pp.636-645. ISSN 0210-4806.

In the eighties a new field of the medicine appears wich applies the principles of cellular cultivation to synthetic biodegradable polymers scaffolds with the purpose of creating autologous biological substitutes that could improve, maintain or restore the function of organs or damaged tissues.  The Tissue Engineering constitutes a new discipline in full phase of development especially in USA, with multiple potential applications in several medical specialities.  Our speciality can’t remain indifferent to interest and encouraging future originated by this new science. In this work we have made a wide bibliographical revision in the Medline to know the antecedents, current state and the possible future applications of Tissue Engineering in Urology.

Keywords : In vitro culture; Cell culture; Urothelium; Tissue engineering.
