Quick and Easy to the Proper Suture
The selection of surgical suture is massive! Absorbent, non-absorbent, monofilament or multifilament–there is a surgical suture for every application. In our Suture category, you have the ability to set various filters for quickly and easily finding the proper needle and thread combinations.
Wound closure is used for wounds with divergent wound edges. Bringing these wound edges back together encourages the healing process and impedes germs' ability to penetrate the wound. Wound closure can be done in various ways. The treating doctor decides which method of wound closure is necessary and this depends on the type of wound, the size and the localisation.
Wound Closure with Surgical Suture
Sewing the wound edges with a surgical needle and special thread is the classic wound closure method. This is universally applicable and creates quick and uncomplicated healing when done properly. One differentiates between absorbent threads that dissolve on their own and non-absorbent threads that must be removed by the doctor after a certain period of time. Furthermore, surgical threads differ in make-up and can be monofilament, multifilament and pseudo-monofilament. The greatest difference between these sutures comes in manipulation and knot security.
With Praxisdienst, you receive a wide selection of absorbent and non-absorbent surgical suture as immediately ready-to-use needle-thread combinations.
Wound Closure with a Skin Stapler
A skin stapler offers wound closure for especially long wounds that do not have any cosmetic implications. The skin stapler functions similar to an office stapler and is able to close even the largest of wounds within the shortest time frame. For this reason, this procedure is often used to close long post-operational wounds. In the Wound Closure category, you will find single-use and reusable skin staplers and the compatible skin staple magazines at affordable prices.
Wound Closure with Tissue Adhesive (Skin Glue)
Tissue adhesive closes smooth surface wounds on bodily regions with low mechanical function. Because the glue is simply applied to the wound, it does not cause any additional trauma as opposed to skin staples or suture. The use of tissue adhesive for wound closure purposes is particularly popular amongst children, as the treatment is painless and does not require narcosis. Many skin glues also contain antibacterial substances to protect the wound from infection.
Praxisdienst offers you various tissue adhesives for quick and painless wound closure of wounds up to 5 cm in length.
Wound Closure with Steri-Strips
Steri-Strips are suited for closing smaller surface wounds with which treatment with surgical suture would not be worth the time or that may be otherwise too difficult. Steri-Strips are stuck on in such a way as to bring the wound edges back together. They can be simply removed after a few days. With Praxisdienst, you will receive Steri-Strips in various sizes and at affordable prices.
Praxisdienst offers you a comprehensive assortment of products for professional wound closure. Whether it is for surgical wounds, cuts, lacerations or gashes, you are guaranteed to find the appropriate product for quickly and securely closing the wound.
