Tissue engineering is an emerging field that has the potential to revolutionize the field of reconstructive surgery by providing off-the-shelf replacement products. The literature has become replete with tissue engineering studies, and the aim of this article is to review the contemporary application of tissue-engineered products. The use of tissue-engineered cartilage, bone and nerve in head and neck reconstruction is discussed.
