Evaluation of a new product for sutureless skin closure.

By S. Westaby

Abstract

Op-Site skin closures, a new product for sutureless skin closure, were used on 100 patients undergoing a wide variety of major surgical procedures. The results showed that, provided that the underlying fat and muscle layers were closed meticulously to eliminate dead space, these skin closures maintained wound-edge apposition satisfactorily to produce an excellent cosmetic appearance to the final scar with the added advantages of a low incidence of infection, quicker application, and improved patient acceptability compared with conventional suturing techniques
