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 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.
