First Synthetic Larynx Part Transplanted



I recall seeing the original news article some time ago when this team of doctors and scientists transplanted the first synthetic windpipe that was also infused with stem cells. Original stem cell embedded grafts used the underlying structure from a cadaver. This team however achieved the same success with a completely synthetic graft.

Now the team has their sights set higher - a full larynx, which the team estimates to be 10 years away.
