Core Tip This article reviews the current status of the stem cell based therapies in the field of treating urinary tract pathologies. We provide a particular focus on bladder reconstruction models that were based on stem cellular therapies. Stress incontinence and voiding dysfunction represent common clinical problems that could benefit from advancing the stem cell field. A brief highlight is given to bladder cancer stem cells and therapeutic value that could arise from controlling their behavior. We also note the pressing need for more robust regulations and quality guidelines to prevent the transfer of research findings prematurely into routine clinical practice.
