regeneration

 [re-jen″er-a´shun]
the natural renewal of a structure, as of a lost tissue or part.

re·gen·er·a·tion

(rē'jen-ĕr-ā'shŭn),
1. Reproduction or reconstitution of a lost or injured part. Synonym(s): neogenesis
2. A form of asexual reproduction; for example, when a worm is divided into two or more parts, each segment regenerates into a new individual.

regeneration

the replacement of tissues (for example, the growth of hair or nails) or repair of tissues or organs lost through damage. In animals, the degree of regeneration varies from group to group but is generally more extensive in the lower phyla. In plants, regeneration is common and used extensively in VEGETATIVE PROPAGATION.

regeneration (rējen´ərā´shən),

n the renewal or repair of lost tissue or parts.
regeneration, guided bone (GBR),
n a technique in which a membrane is placed over a bone defect site to encourage new bone growth and direct its formation while preventing other tissues from interfering with osteogenesis.
regeneration, muscle,
n repair of muscle tissue. When surgical intervention or inflammatory disease of dental structures injures the facial and masticatory muscles, two types of repair take place: repair by budding and repair by proliferation.
regeneration, muscle, by budding,
n regeneration that takes place in destructive lesions of muscle, traumatic necrosis, hemorrhage, infarction, and suppurative myositis. The buds consist of undifferentiated plasmodial masses and certain sarcolemma nuclei. The rebuilt architecture is not classic and has bizarre and sometimes fibrous extensions that look like scarred defects.
regeneration, muscle, by proliferation,
n regeneration in degenerating muscles by proliferation of bands of sarcoplasm in which the sarcolemma and its nuclei are preserved.
