Stem Cell Tracheal Implant

Cancer patient gets a new trachea grown from his own stem cells | DVICE:
"Doctors created the trachea by first building a scaffold in the shape of his own diseased trachea, based on measurements taken from CAT scan images. Then they put the completed form in device called an InBreath Bioreactor, and bathed it in a solution that included stem cells taken from the patient's own bone marrow. Two weeks later, the cells had multiplied and the trachea was fully formed, ready for implantation."
