Postoperative Metal Staple Removal Eliminated with Preloaded Subcuticular Skin Stapler

The INSORB|20 Subcuticular Skin Stapler is a sterile, single patient use device that is preloaded with 20 absorbable staples, sufficient to close an incision up to 17 cm in length. The skin closure modality is designed to combine the cosmesis of absorbable suture with the rapid closure times associated with metal skin staplers, while eliminating the need for metal staple removal postoperatively.
The device may reduce operative and anesthesia time associated with suture closure and eliminate the risk of inadvertent needlesticks.
