Large skin wounds such as in burns lead to significant losses of fluid, electrolytes, and energy and also porvide a portal of entry for infections. Therefore cutaneous wound healing and epithelial coversage is a critical issue in these patients and has led to a number of developments in the field of skin transplantation and skin replacement.
