This chapter aims to provide a short summary of the use of biological and
engineering principles in wound healing applications to achieve tissue repair and
regeneration. We also aim at providing the readers with a review of biomaterials,
polymer-based dressing; films, hydrogels, current scaffolds, etc. used in wound healing
application. Finally, the chapter aims to give information about functional dressings,
bioactive matrices for wound healing and finally the chapter ends by giving
information about some clinical trials and upcoming future trends.
