ABSTRACT
The article presents tissue engineering as helpful mechanism to rule out esophageal disorders. Researchers argue that tissue engineering, which is the in vitro creation of functional replacement tissues, has been proposed as technique to replace lost or damaged tissues due to acute or chronic disease. In one study on engineering esophagus, the goal is restoration of protective stratified epithelium after endoscopic submucosal dissection using cultured sheets of cells from buccal mucosa.
