Bioengineered alternative tissues (BATs) are heterogeneous processed materials used to aid in wound closure of diabetic foot ulcers. There has been significant progress in the development and clinical use of BATs in the last decade. BATs may be derived from an autograft, allograft, or xenograft source. They may be a single-layer material and consist of only an epidermal or dermal component or they may be bilayer, consisting of both epidermal and dermal components. The holy grail of tissue replacement has yet to be discovered. Nevertheless, if researchers and bioengineers can flip the switch to return cells to their prenatal period, this can be a breakthrough in cellular regeneration.
