Wound closure

Wound closure

Veterinary medicine uses different procedures for wound closure: open wounds are mostly closed with wound sutures. This means the wound is closed with a needle and thread. Skin staplers attach the superior skin layer of the wound edges together and are often used to close surface wounds. Skin staplers are manufactured as disposable and reusable products.

Tissue adhesive can be used for small surface wounds, either alone or in conjunction with skin sutures. It resembles a secondary adhesive that can be used for organic tissues, and seals wounds within a few minutes. Tissue adhesive and skin staplers permit wound closure without full or local anaesthesia. Anaesthesia is only necessary for skin sutures.

In this category, Praxisdienst-VET offers a wide selection of absorbable and non-absorbable sutures, different kinds of surgical needles, suture racks, skin stapler systems and tissue adhesive from different manufacturers. Buy high quality products for wound closure from Praxisdienst-VET!
