Tissue Engineering, Bioprinting and The “Reconstructive Ladder”

The ultimate purpose of nearly all tissue engineering and Bioprinting is the clinical translation thereof. However, the actual clinical needs and specific parameters required are not always clearly defined. As such, this talk provides an overview (from a surgeon’s perspective) of the clinical scenarios in which tissue engineering and bioprinting might have their greatest impact with a particular focus on the current clinical strategies utilized in reconstruction including the use of grafts (non-vascularized) and flaps (vascularized). The discussion will also include an overview of the shortcomings of currently available tissue engineered products as well as highlight strategies for achieving the “Holy Grail” of tissue engineering—constructs with their own inherent hierarchical vascularity.
