Bioabsorbable staples for skin closure

The INSORB/25 skin stapler offers the speed of metal staplers with the cosmetic results and comfort of absorbable sutures, according to Incisive Surgical, Inc. (Minneapolis, MN). The device uses bioabsorbable staples that are placed under the skin and dissolve in the body within a few months. Made of the same material as leading bioabsorbable sutures, the staples break down naturally, so there's no need for postop removal. This product also eliminates the potential for needlesticks to the OR staff. For more information, contact info@insorb.com
