INSORB is an absorbable, subdermal skin closure device, which combines the benefits and cosmetic results of sutures with the efficiency of a conventional stapler. INSORB is comprised of a co-polymer of polylactic acid and polyglycolic acid, which is absorbed over a period of a few months.
Use INSORB to replace deep dermal sutures.
INSORB staples are placed completely under the dermis.
Wound closure with INSORB is approximately 7-fold faster than suturing.¹
Suitable for abdominoplasty, mammaplasty – including breast reconstruction and breast lift – mastectomy, breast FLAP reconstruction, thigh lift, brachioplasty, closure of surgical pockets after electrophysiology procedures, and other plastic and reconstructive procedures.
