skin closure surgery
Secure skin closure is an integral step of nearly every surgical procedure. If the closure device does not provide the strength and support required by the skin tissue, the wound edges may separate, providing a potential pathway for bacterial contamination, which can lead to infection, suboptimal cosmesis, and low patient satisfaction.86,87,130
Longer incisions present unique clinical challenges, such as approximating wound edges evenly, distributing tension evenly across the wound, and maintaining the integrity of the surgical site.
