The unique INSORB Absorbable Skin Stapling Technology is a revolutionary new skin closure technology that places an absorbable staple entirely underneath the skin to close surgical incisions. Patients and clinicians now have a more comfortable, convenient and cosmetic choice for rapid skin closure. This unique device has won several national awards, including the 2006 Wall Street Journal Technology Innovation of the Year Award for medical devices. Incisive Surgical is the only company in the world that offers this technology and has sold over 2,300,000 INSORB Absorbable Skin Staplers since the product launch in January 2005.
The revolutionary INSORB Absorbable Skin Staple is comprised of a co-polymer of polylactide-polyglycolide with a well-established history in wound closure.
The patented INSORB Skin Stapler is a sterile, single patient use device that deploys 30 absorbable staples, sufficient to close an incision up to 21 cm in length.
