Wound closure is used for wounds with divergent wound edges. Bringing these edges back together encourages the healing process and impedes germs' ability to penetrate the wound. Wound closure can be done in various ways. Which primary wound closure method is used depends on the type of the wound, the size and the localisation on the skin of the patient.
Wound Closure with Surgical Suture
Sewing the wound edges with a surgical needle and special thread is the classic wound closure method after surgery. Stitches are universally applicable and promote quick and uncomplicated healing when done professionally. One differentiates between absorbable suture that dissolves on its own and nonabsorbable suture that that is removed by the doctor after a certain time period. Furthermore, surgical threads differ in make-up. One differentiates between non-braided, or monofilament sutures, which are made up of one single thread, and polyfilament or multifilament sutures that are braided with multiple threads.
With Praxisdienst, you will find a large selection of surgical suture material and ready-to-use needle-thread combinations to effectively stitch tissue. We offer both monofilament and multifilament sutures with a variety of protective coating materials to prevent surgical site infections. The Vicryl Plus Violet Absorbable Sutures from Ethicon, for example, are synthetic sutures with anti-bacterial coating. After 21 days, they still have 50% of their high tensile strength, which is reduced to 0% after 35 days.
Wound Closure with a Skin Stapler
Skin staples offer an easy way to treat particularly long wounds that do not have any cosmetic implications. The skin stapler functions similarly to an office stapler and is able to close even the largest wounds within the shortest time frame. As a result, this procedure is particularly popular for closing long, post-operational wounds. In the Skin Stapler category, you will find sterile single-use and reusable skin staplers, in addition to the compatible skin staple magazines at affordable prices.
Wound Closure with Tissue Adhesive
With glue, smooth surface wounds on bodily regions with low mechanical function can be closed quickly and reliably. As the adhesive is simply put on the wound, it does not cause any additional trauma on the tissue, as opposed to skin staples or suture. The use of skin glue for wound closure purposes is especially popular amongst children, as the treatment is painless and does not require narcosis. Many skin adhesives 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 Skin Closure 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 too difficult. The wound repair strips are made with skin-friendly material and coated with well-wearing adhesives like acrylate glue. They are stuck in a way to bring the wound edges back together and can simply be removed after a few days. As a result, wound closure with skin closures is painfree, leaves no stitch marks and guarantees excellent cosmetic results. Due to their small size and easy application, they are ideal for use in first aid and for filling doctor and emergency bags.
With Praxisdienst, you will receive sterile, breathable and non-woven adhesive strips in various sizes and at affordable prices. The Steri-Strip Elastic Skin Closures from 3M, for example are ideal for body parts with many contours, while the Steri-Strip Antimicrobial Skin Closures are reinforced with rayon threads and prevent scarring.
