Compared to Percutaneous Metal Staples INSORB Absorbable Subcuticular Staples "may lead to less in-hospital analgesic use" resulting in "a cost savings of approximately $200 per patient even after considering the higher cost of the device."
Compared to Absorbable Subcuticular Suture
"For cesarean delivery, the INSORB Staple is faster and more cost-effective than subcuticular suture... One needlestick injury occurred with suture."
