Abstract

Several skin substitutes are available that can be used in the management of hand burns; some are intended as temporary covers to expedite healing of shallow burns and others are intended to be used in the surgical management of deep burns. An understanding of skin biology and the relative benefits of each product are needed to determine the optimal role of these products in hand burn management.
