Why INSORB

?

Benefits of INSORB vs. Suture

The INSORB skin stapler is designed to create uniform, symmetric dermis-to-dermis closures.

  • Increases skin eversion, which may improve healing and cosmesis
  • May reduce operative time²
  • May result in reduced hand fatigue
  • Eliminates risk of needlestick injuries at the time of closure

Benefits of INSORB vs. Metal Staples

The INSORB skin stapler eliminates the percutaneous insult created by metal skin staples.

  • Eliminates the pain and discomfort of percutaneous metal skin staples and potential “railroad track” scars
  • Evidence of reduced wound complications vs. metal staples³
  • Eliminates cost, patient inconvenience, anxiety and discomfort associated with percutaneous metal staple removal

The INSORB absorbable skin staple is composed of a co-polymer of polylactide-polyglycolide with a well-established history in wound closure.

The INSORB Subcuticular Skin Stapler places an absorbable staple horizontally in the dermis to achieve an everted skin closure.
