Abstract

The most recent advance in skin stapling is the Auto Suture SQS-20 disposable stapler. It approximates and everts wound edges, placing one synthetic absorbable pin in the dermis each time the instrument handle is activated. Staple wound closure was accomplished four times faster than sutural closure of the dermis. Wounds with staple pin closure exhibit superior resistance to infection than wounds approximated by dermal sutures. Although sutures provide more immediate wound security, as measured by wound breaking strength, than dermal pins, the breaking strength of wounds subjected to either dermal pins or dermal sutures were not significantly different 14 days after wounding.
