Choose STRATAFIX™ Knotless Tissue Control Devices
and DERMABOND™ PRINEO™ Skin Closure System.1
With significantly more points of fixation than traditional sutures, STRATAFIX™ Knotless Tissue Control Devices allowed for more consistent tension control over every pass and combined the strength* and security‡ of interrupted closure with the speed† of continuous closure.¤2-6
Plus Antibacterial Sutures
Triclosan-coated sutures have been shown in multiple meta- analyses to reduce the risk of SSIs by 28%. 7-9 Plus Antibacterial Sutures have been shown in vitro to inhibit bacterial colonization of the suture for 7 days or more and are effective against the most common organisms associated with SSIs¤10-12:
- Staphylococcus aureus
- Staphylococcus epidermidis
- Escherichia coli**
- K pneumoniae**
DERMABOND™ PRINEO™ Skin Closure System provided a flexible microbial barrier with 98.43% protection in vitro for 72 hours against organisms commonly responsible for SSIs. ¥§ 13
DERMABOND™ PRINEO™ led to greater overall patient satisfaction compared to skin staples.¶ 14-16
Traditional wound closure techniques involving conventional suture, staples and wound dressings may not be the optimal choice to achieve the primary objective of multi-layer, watertight closure.17
Reducing risk factors and improving healing can be achieved with appropriate surgical technique and postoperative care. You can optimise tissue management through the principles of wound healing: gentle handling of tissues, careful haemostasis, obliteration of dead space, and avoidance of tension.18,19 Appropriate choice of wound dressing should manage wound bioburden, limit cross contamination and promote a wound healing environment. 20
