Abstract

It is widely believed that regenerative medicine, including stem cell-based technologies, will revolutionise healthcare in decades to come. Stem-cell treatments are already a reality and tissue engineering is moving deeper and deeper into the clinic. Various forms of stem cell and scaffold are in clinical trials and can be used alone, in combinations or supported by conventional treatments, such as drugs and free tissue transfer. It is likely that rhinology will also feel the winds of change very shortly. We review the present state-of-the art and a view of the future potential for regenerative medicine to influence care of patients with rhinologic disorders.
