Abstract: 【Abstract】 Severe dermal defects caused by burns, trauma, scars, tumor resection and so on are liable to form scar deformities. Dermal substitutes can reduce the formation of abnormal scars during wound healing, and effectively decrease the incidence of pathological scars after scar resection and repair. This review introduces some commonly used dermal substitutes and their clinical application in wound healing and skin repair after scar resection.
