An extensive number of bioengineered tissues have been studied and published in the medical literature. Due to the number of released data for these biologics, the purpose and utility often becomes ambiguous. Despite this difficulty, the therapeutic options continue to be advantageous for the practicing clinicians and can regularly provide manageable outcomes for acute, chronic and difficult-to-heal wounds. The purpose of this article is to review the many biologics that have been studied or released over the past decade and comment on data supporting or refuting their use.
