Transplantation refers to the transfer of tissues or whole organs.

  1. autotransplantation – transfer from the same individual; the greatest probability of permanent graft attachment
  2. alotransplantation (homotransplantation) – transfer from another individual of the same species
  3. xenotransplantation (heterotransplantation) – transfer from an individual of another species (e.g. pig skin)
  4. isotransplantation – transfer from a monozygotic, immunobiologically identical twin (equivalent to autotransplantation)

If we use a foreign material for the replacement, then it is alloplasty.
