I've held a few strange body parts in my hands over the years - all I should stress, in the line of work. They have ranged from mechanical heart pumps to hi-etch prosthetic limbs. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-14068012

This is fascinating news. This will eliminate all rejection problems faced by patients in the past (including the anti-rejection meds force fed to them who might have been just as dangerous as the operation itself), and prolly lead the way the other body parts replacement.

This will be a nice adjunct to the continuance of medical marijuana, I think.

This technique is only good for body parts that have simple structures composed from tissue with abundant adult stem cells and no complicated bloodflow patterns. A cartillege windpipe is a simple segmented tube with almost no vasculature, and you can scrape up some cartillage and grow it over a nice scaffold easily enough. More complicated structures are still largely a bust.
