Medical Skin Staplers as an Alternative to Surgical Suture
Surgical skin staplers can be used as an alternative to surgical needle-thread combinations and enable quick and hygienic wound closure. The use of sterile staples for closing wounds is not only time saving, but it also brings a very low risk of infection. As the sterile staples do not penetrate into wound openings, germ transmission is effectively prevented. Another advantage of the skin stapler is that, as opposed to treatments with traditional surgical suture, there is no risk of misshaping the tissue with thread. The staples are also very easy to remove.
Disposable or Reusable Medical Skin Staplers
Surgical staplers come with different sized handles, with standard or wide staples and with a different number of staples, depending on the model. Surgical staplers are available as disposable skin staplers or reusable devices. With reusable staplers you need to remove & replace the staple magazine and sterilise the stapler. Disposable staplers can simply be disposed of after use. To remove staples from the skin one needs to use a special staple remover. We stock a range of staple removers in different designs in our online shop.
