INSORB is a revolutionary absorbable, subcuticular, skin closure device, which combines the cosmetic results of sutures with the speed and efficiency of a conventional stapler. INSORB contains 30 staples which are comprised of the absorbable co-polymer PLA and PGA, which is absorbed over 90-120 days. Staples are placed completely under the dermis, with no percutaneous insult or staple removal required (please view video for technique, and staplers mechanism).
Originally designed and used by Plastic and Reconstructive surgeons for excellent cosmetic results and wound closure speed; INSORB is now widely used for wound closure throughout various surgical disciplines including, obstetrics, general surgery, orthopaedic, cardiology, electrophysiology, endocrinology to name a few!
