Parenchyma is functional tissue, i. e. tissue that has a specific function. Organs are built from functional tissue and connective/structural tissue (stroma). In the kidney this is e. g. Gerota's fascia (stroma) vs. the tissue producing urine (glomerula etc.).
You can look up more combinations of what parts of organs are parenchyma and which are stroma at e. ...
They’re fastened together by blood vessels, nerves and most importantly, connective tissue, muscles and bones.

The same holds true for other organs in the body, although the skin and the brain are slightly different cases.
The brain does float around, albeit in the cerebrospinal fluid, and very ...
The number you are looking for is basically the energy the body needs in a resting state.
When resting, we assume that no energy is used for any actions but vital ones, as the body is not exactly doing anything.
Measuring that energy
Measuring that energy is slightly more complicated. Here is my solution to it:
With any machine, we are ...
Whilst the Science Museum of London points out that we seem to be close to developing complete human organs, there appears to be a few more years before we are able to grow the first complete usable organ.
For example, Lytal (2018) points out that so far, scientists haven’t been able to create complete adult human kidneys because they’re too complex, but ...
I would say consult a doctor to confirm the problem. Removal of the Uterus usually doesn't cause to much of a shift, but I am sure there are a very few instances when it does.
The uterus typically takes up a very small space in the abdomen or
pelvis. After a hysterectomy, the other abdominal organs shift
slightly to fill the space. During the surgery,...

The authors explicitly mention to have found a component of tissues, not an organ.
The authors make no mention of an 'organ'. Here's an excerpt from the Discussion section of the linked paper:
In sum, while typical descriptions of the interstitium suggest spaces between cells, we describe macroscopically visible spaces within ...
It sounds like what you are looking for is the basal metabolic rate, which is the rate that you expend energy at rest, which roughly translates to the minimum rate that you need to consume energy in order to survive long term.
It varies significantly from person to person based on a large number of factors. A number of formulas to estimate it for a given ...
Liver donation - an act of great honor - should only be done once.
Liver regeneration occurs via Compensatory hyperplasia.
Regeneration of the liver can be more correctly defined as compensatory hyperplasia where in the remaining liver tissue expands to meet the metabolic needs of the organism. Unlike anatomic true regeneration, the expanding liver does not ...
According to the standard blood compatibility chart:
(image from Owlcation: The Basics of Blood and Blood Typing - Wikipedia file)
AB blood types can only donate to other AB blood types, but AB blood types can receive from other blood types, so what is the point of being an AB donor.
Well, the chart says that they are the only blood type that can do a ...
