Skin grafting of granulation tissue following eschar separation has been replaced by operative intervention within days of injury. Skin substitutes, dermal replacements, skin tissue culture, and bioengineering are exciting and rapidly expanding technologies that are already offering amazing results. This chapter deals with the pathophysiology of the burn wound, the scientific basis of wound excision, and the techniques and technologies now available to burn surgeons.
