Clinical Experience with Subcuticular Absorbable Staples for Wound Closure in Mulitple Surgical Specialties
Observations of Improved Outcomes With Decreased Complications, Reduced Overall Costs and Increased Patient Satisfaction
Knee Arthroplasty Wound Closure With Absorbable Subcuticular Staples - A Retrospective Review Of 104 Consecutive Procedures
Based on the results of our study, we conclude that absorbable subcuticular staples offer a secure, efficient, and effective method of skin closure. Our findings suggest that absorbable subcuticular staples are a preferred skin closure modality in knee arthroplasty due to improved wound healing with a remarkable lack of inflammation, time savings in surgery and in clinic, cosmetic advantages, and improved patient satisfaction compared to our experience with subcuticular suture and percutaneous metal staples.
Absorbable Subcuticular Staples Compared With Suture for Cesarean Closure: A Randomized Controlled Trial
The subcuticular staple group had significantly shorter skin closure time (2.6 versus 8.5 minutes]... the cost reduction with subcuticular staples [compared to suture] was $172 – $829 per case... One needlestick injury occurred with suture.
