Open wounds are critical to close and heal as they can cause serious infections. Wound closure devices, like sutures, surgical staples, and skin glues have been helpful in aiding this healing process. However, they also do some damage because of the puncturing and crushing of the skin.
Today, there is a non-invasive alternative to stitches and staples that prevents further damage to the skin. Called the DermaClip, the single-use, needle-less device promotes healthy skin closure and wound healing. It is also simple and easy to use.
The device, made up of two pieces of adhesive joined by a polypropylene bridge, is applied to the edges of the wound and closed by pulling the tabs in opposing directions.
As explained in the DermaClip website:
“By pulling the device closed by the tabs, the angled faces of the polypropylene bridge encounter each other, thus lifting the wound edges. This lifting action puts the viable dermis on each side of the wound back into contact. In other words, the design is intended to create a natural eversion of the skin edges on closure – eversion being the result a skilled surgeon seeks to accomplish, as it is widely believed that wound eversion is essential for minimizing scarring because it maximizes the chance for proper epidermal approximation.”
The non-latex, long-duration adhesive can support wound closure for 7 to 10 days and is gentle on the skin.
It is ideal to use on sensitive, diabetic or geriatric skin. The simple design also allows lesser trained individuals to effectively close wounds, especially during emergency and first-aid situations.
The DermaClip skin closure device has been used successfully in different procedures.
The device can lessen wound closure time and eliminate needlestick risk and skin punctures. It also comes in two sizes (regular and large).
The DermaClip has been successfully used in cases of cesarean section, mastectomy, adbominoplasty, wound and laceration repair, total hip replacement, skin tears in diabetic and geriatric patients, and pediatric wound closure.
