Staplers, Skin

Definition : Staplers designed to deliver staples one at a time across cut skin edges to close the incision. These staplers usually deliver U-shaped staples that approximate and evert the edges of the tissue as the staples are driven through the skin and conformed into a rectangular shape. The rectangular configuration of the staples resist rotation while avoiding compression of the skin, resulting in easy removal with good cosmetic results. Skin staplers are intended to close the skin after surgical or traumatic wounds with less pain and better results than obtained with standard sutures; they are available as single-use disposable devices and also as reusable devices with disposable cartridges..
