The INSORB Absorbable Skin Stapler represents a revolutionary new skin closure modality designed to combine the cosmetic result of absorbable suture with the rapid closure times associated with metal skin staplers, while eliminating the need for metal staple removal post-operatively. The INSORB Absorbable Staple is comprised of a co-polymer of polylactic acid and polyglycolic acid, which is absorbed over a period of a few months.
