 Most organs present inside a recom'​s torso can be replaced with artificial organs. ​ As a general rule, this is done as a temporary basis while the recipient is awaiting autologous cloned organ replacement. ​ Rather than list which organs are available, the following is a list of organs that cannot be permanently replaced: Most organs present inside a recom'​s torso can be replaced with artificial organs. ​ As a general rule, this is done as a temporary basis while the recipient is awaiting autologous cloned organ replacement. ​ Rather than list which organs are available, the following is a list of organs that cannot be permanently replaced:
    
-  * Sexual organs - Ovaries and testicles that produce functional gametes for reproductive purposes have not been successfully produced. ​ While it is possible to create permanent artificial structures resembling external genitalia, they generally do not function in the same manner as either original organs or autologous cloned replacements (unless the required underlying organic structures are still intact). ​ The less-tactful will point out that artificial sex organs essentially fill the same niche as artificial breast implants.+  * Sexual organs - Ovaries and testicles that produce functional gametes for reproductive purposes have not been successfully produced. ​ While it is possible to create permanent artificial structures resembling external genitalia, they generally do not function in the same manner as either original organs or autologous cloned replacements (unless the required underlying organic structures, glands, etc... ​are still intact). ​ The less-tactful will point out that artificial sex organs essentially fill the same niche as artificial breast implants.
   * Digestive tract - the stomach and small and large intestines have no permanent artificial substitutes. ​ Generally a patient awaiting replacement for these tissues remains in intensive care in a hospital until autologous replacements can be grown. ​ In the rare instance that a patient is given digestive tract implants, they must be monitored against failure, due to the chemical and mechanical processes involved in digestion.   * Digestive tract - the stomach and small and large intestines have no permanent artificial substitutes. ​ Generally a patient awaiting replacement for these tissues remains in intensive care in a hospital until autologous replacements can be grown. ​ In the rare instance that a patient is given digestive tract implants, they must be monitored against failure, due to the chemical and mechanical processes involved in digestion.
