Two Dimensional Clinical Tissue Engineering

Skin Tissue Engineering

The earliest clinical applications of tissue engineering revolved around the use of essentially flat materials designed to stimulate wound care. Tissue-engineered skin substitutes dominated the market for almost a decade. Another small and slim tissue that found a clinical application was cartilage. Later in the 1990s thin sheets of cells were produced in culture and then applied to patients using a powerful cell-sheet technology. In both the applications, engineered tissue equivalent is...
