British American Medica – BAMedica.com Artificial Organs: We’re Entering an Era Where Transplants Are Obsolete
Creating brand-new organs for patients so organ donation will become a thing of the past – British American Medica – BAMedica.com
Did you know that you no longer need to wait for a donor?
The Artificial Human Organs Technology Is Available – You Can Get Your Synthetic Human Organ
Today you can ask for and get a new organ such as the implantable artificial urinary bladder – complete replacement, the artificial heart – cardiovascular-related artificial organs implanted in cases where the heart, its valves, or another part of the circulatory system is in disorder, the implantable artificial kidney to allow blood filtrate continuously, that would help reduce kidney disease illness and increase the quality of life of patients or the artificial liver designed to serve as a supportive device allowing the liver to regenerate upon failure, within weeks after the evaluation.
No need to wait for years!
Implantable artificial urinary bladder – complete replacement.
Artificial heart – cardiovascular-related artificial organs implanted in cases where the heart, its valves, or another part of the circulatory system is in disorder. The artificial heart is typically used to permanently replace the heart in case heart transplantation is impossible.
Implantable artificial kidney to allow blood filtrate continuously, that would help reduce kidney disease illness and increase the quality of life of patients.
Artificial liver designed to serve as a supportive device allowing the liver to regenerate upon failure.

Synthetic organs, livers, kidneys and bones.
BAMedica labs are working to make better cells that could work the way natural organs do.
Generating replacement livers and kidneys to fill the gap that donor organs can’t address.
An artificial organ is a human made organ device or tissue that is implanted or integrated into a human — interfacing with living tissue — to replace a natural organ, to duplicate or augment a specific function or functions so the patient may return to a normal life as soon as possible.
The replaced function does not have to be related to life support, but it often is. For example, replacement bones and joints, such as those found in hip replacements, could also be considered artificial organs.
Evaluation is required to decide if you are a good candidate for a transplant. However, at every center, you can expect to have:
A medical and surgical history. The team will review your medical history carefully. You will be asked about any illnesses, surgeries, and treatments you’ve had in the past. You will also be asked about your family’s history. If any problems are found, they will be looked at further.
A physical exam. The team will need to make sure you are healthy enough for transplant surgery, and that a transplant is the best choice for you. They will examine all your major organs and body parts.
A psycho-social exam. Getting a new organ has many benefits – but it also has some risks. One purpose of the psychosocial exam is to make sure you are emotionally prepared for the surgery, post-transplant care, and for living with a new organ. You and your family may have some unexpected feelings during this journey. The psychosocial exam helps make sure you will be able to cope with the physical and emotional aspects of your transplant.
Compatibility tests. The center will need to know your blood and tissue type in order to match you to a suitable organ. A sample of your blood will be taken, and the following tests will be done:
Blood typing. There are four main blood types: A, B, AB, and O. Everyone fits into one of these types.
Tissue typing. This test compares the tissue within your body to the organ.
Cross-matching. Throughout your life, your body makes substances called antibodies that attack and destroy any foreign substances that invade your body, like germs or viruses. Your body makes antibodies every time you have an infection, become pregnant, have a blood transfusion, or undergo a transplant. If you have antibodies to the organ, your body will try to destroy it. For this reason, you will need this blood test to make sure that you do not already have antibodies. There are special treatments to remove antibodies if needed.
Other medical tests are needed and will depend on your specific health condition, including but not limited to:
Blood tests. Blood tests are used to check the function of your heart, kidneys, liver, thyroid, and immune system. You will also be checked for problems with blood sugar control and electrolyte balance. Special tests that look for certain viruses (CMU, EBV, hepatitis and HIV/AIDS) will also be done.
Chest X-ray. This is done to check your lungs for infection, lung disease, or other abnormalities. It is also used to see the size of your heart.
Echo-cardiogram. This is an ultrasound of your heart. It is done to check your heart’s chambers, valves, and pumping function for any signs of problems.
Electrocardiogram. This test looks at your heart’s rhythm and will show if there are any abnormalities.
Cardiac stress test. This measures your heart’s ability to respond to stress in a controlled environment. It can show if your heart is strong enough for a transplant surgery.
Cancer screening. You must be cancer-free before undergoing A transplant. You will have some cancer screening tests, which may include a colonoscopy, skin cancer screening, prostate exam (men), and mammography (women). If you have had cancer in the past, you will be checked carefully to make sure it has not returned.
Colonoscopy. A flexible camera is used to check the colon for polyps, tumors, and any unusual growths that might indicate cancer or other medical problems. If you are over age 50 or have a personal or family history of colon cancer, this test will be included.
Gynecological examination. Women will need a pap smear, mammography, and checked for pregnancy (if appropriate).
Prostate exam. Men may need a prostate exam.
Dental evaluation. This is done to make sure you do not have infections, cavities, or gum disease. If you have any of these dental problems, it is best to have them corrected before transplant because they can cause problems after transplant.
