 Synonyms & Historicals
Artificial Organs .
Artificial Organ .
Organ, Artificial .
Organs, Artificial .
Devices intended to replace non-functioning organs. They may be temporary or permanent. Since they are intended always to function as the natural organs they are replacing, they should be differentiated from PROSTHESES AND IMPLANTS and specific types of prostheses which, though also replacements for body parts, are frequently cosmetic (EYE, ARTIFICIAL) as well as functional (ARTIFICIAL LIMBS). .
Artificial Cells .
Artificial Cell .
Artificial Organelles .
Protocells .

Protocell .
Synthetic Cell .
Synthetic Organelle .
Chemically synthesized structures which functionally resemble natural cells. .
Bioartificial Organs .
Bioartificial Organ .
Organ, Bioartificial .
Organs, Bioartificial .
Artificial organs that are composites of biomaterials and cells. The biomaterial can act as a membrane (container) as in BIOARTIFICIAL LIVER or a scaffold as in bioartificial skin. .
