A tissue engineered skin service was developed to describe how cultured epithelial autograft (CEA) has evolved into an integral component of burn wound healing in Western Australia. CEA is epithelium and the performance long terms is influenced greatly by the dermal reconstruction. Methods of introducing dermis vary based on the nature and extent of the injury, and the use of meshed grafts with CEA gives cover with optimum scar quality with current technology. The ultimate aim of tissue engineered skin is the manufacture of site specific skin, compatible, rapidly available, and affordable.
