As the number of individuals awaiting organ transplant continues to increase, tissue engineering and regenerative medicine technologies present promising new options for addressing the critical tissue and organ shortages that currently exist. This chapter provides a comprehensive review of tissue engineering and regenerative medicine technologies related to lung, reproductive system, peripheral nerve, skeletal muscle, gastrointestinal system, and renal tissue engineering. It also provides an update on bone tissue engineering, vascular tissue engineering, cardiac tissue engineering, cartilage tissue engineering, skin tissue engineering, and urology tissue engineering. Currently, clinical trials are investigating both cellular and acellular solutions for a variety of regenerative treatments. Recent scientific advancements and clinical discoveries continue to inspire progress toward effective, clinically translatable therapies that will be amenable to commercialization in the near future, and thereby increase the availability of tissue-engineered products.
