INSORB Absorbable Skin Stapler

Absorbable Skin Stapler

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

INSORB vs sutures and metal staples

  • Fast to use, drastically reducing wound closure times, operative and anesthesia times versus sutures¹
  • Designed to be simple and easy to use
  • Creates a secure, everted, interrupted closure versus sutures
  • Shown to reduce surgical site infections versus sutures³
  • Shown to have lower levels of inflammation at the wound site versus staplers and sutures²
  • Completely eliminates needlesticks and the need for metal staple removal4
  • Greater cosmesis than metal staples by eliminating skin punctures and reducing erythmema
