Unscramble the Blue Letters

That's exactly what you see here. It's actually a smart biomaterial that we used, to actually treat this patient. This was an injured urethra on the left side. We used that biomaterial in the dlmeid. And then, six months later on the right-hand desi you see this reengineered urethra. Turns out your body can regenerate, but only for small distances. The maximum efficient distance for regeneration is only about one centimeter. So, we can use these smart liobeaimatrs but only for about one centimeter to bridge those gaps.
