"Our results suggest that the use of subcuticular absorbable staples for skin closure at the time of cesarean section may lead to less in-hospital analgesic use...the decreased use of [IV administered Toradol] associated with absorbable staples would result in a cost savings of approximately $200 per patient even after considering the higher cost of the absorbable staple device."
