BACKGROUND: The duration to close an incision is an important consideration in plastic surgery. The placement of Insorb absorbable subcuticular staples (Insorb, Incisive Surgical, Plymouth, MN) may allow for a decreased closure time compared with other modalities. OBJECTIVES: The authors evaluated the utility of Insorb staples for the closure of mammaplasty and abdominoplasty incisions. METHODS: Sixty patients who underwent anterior abdominal dermatolipectomy, total circular abdominal dermatolipectomy, bilateral breast reduction, or bilateral mastopexy were evaluated in a prospective study...

The authors report the results of a multicenter prospective study evaluating a novel technology: dermal suture using absorbable staples composed of polylactic and polyglycolic acids. From January to June 2009, 59 dermal sutures were performed with Insorb absorbable staples and 41 with absorbable thread. All patients in the study underwent abdominal dermolipectomy (N = 65) or surgery for breast hypertrophy (N = 35). The purpose of the study was to compare the closure time and healing quality obtained with the 2 methods...

During the last four decades, there have been revolutionary advances in the development of skin staples as well as tissue adhesives. One of the purposes of this collective review is to provide an overview of recent advances in the development of metal and absorbable skin staples and tissue adhesives. In addition, we will provide technical considerations in the use of metal and absorbable skin staples and tissue adhesives during surgery. On the basis of extensive experimental studies, we would recommend the Autosuture™ Multifire Premium™ metal skin stapler...

BACKGROUND: Closure with dermal sutures is time consuming, may increase the risks of inflammation and infection secondary to foreign body reaction, exposes the surgeon to possible needlestick injuries, and has variable cosmetic outcomes depending on each surgeon's technique. The absorbable INSORB dermal stapler is hypothesized to be faster and more cost effective than sutures for dermal layer closures and provides a safer and more consistent result. METHODS: This is a prospective, randomized, controlled study...

Six pigs were used to evaluate the influence of three separate modalities on contaminated wounds. Full-thickness skin wounds on the abdomen were contaminated with 10(4) or 10(5) Staphylococcus aureus and then closed with one of three methods. The three closure modalities included (1) a new absorbable staple (Insorb) placed in the subcuticular tissue, (2) a braided Vicryl suture, and (3) percutaneous metal staples. Any foreign body material implanted in tissue increases the risk of infection at that site. Wound closure always involves the use of a foreign body...
