The growth of transplanted hepatocytes is required for the construction of tissue-engineered liver. In this study, cell-embedded hydrogel-filled polyurethane foam plates were subcutaneously transplanted into rat. A liver tissue-like structure was formed by transplanted fetal liver cells in 70% partial hepatectomy treated rat.
