Scope note: Procedimiento en el que se estimula al organismo para que produzca tejido blando extra mediante la aplicación de fuerzas de estiramiento que promueven el nuevo crecimiento de tejido, lo que causa una expansión bidimensional del mismo. El procedimiento se usa en cirugía reparadora de lesiones derivadas de traumatismos, quemaduras o cirugía ablativa. Se han desarrollado diversos tipos de DISPOSITIVOS DE EXPANSIÓN TISULAR que ejercen fuerzas de estiramiento.
