Introduction:Hernia repair is one of the most common surgical procedure performed by general surgeons. With increasing knowledge about accelerated rehabilitation, the surgeons are under pressure to reduce the duration of hospital stay, due to which the method of skin closure has gained importance. The two main techniques of skin closure used by surgeons, are removable skin staples and skin sutures. We decided to study the various skin closure techniques in hernia surgery. Material and Method…

Single versus two layer suturing for wound closure after inguinal hernia repair.

The study aimed to assess the effects of a single layer closure of the skin and subcutaneous wound of inguinal herniorrhaphy, in contrast to the conventional two layer closure.

Skin closure after infrainguinal bypass surgery: a prospective randomised study.

There were no significant differences in the incidence of wound complications in infrainguinal bypass surgery comparing continuous polyamide (Ethilon) and skin staples, and the time needed for wound closure was significantly reduced using metallic staples, but this had no effect on the total operation time.

[Skin closure. A prospective randomized study].

Continuous, subcuticular resorbable suture used on the right indications can give a good cosmetic result and few complications of the wound and a separate outpatient visit for removal of skin sutures or staples can be avoided.

Prospective study using skin staplers in head and neck surgery.

Clips versus suture technique: is there a difference?

When factoring in the increased cost incurred by using clips, as well as other intangible factors such as surgical skill acquisition, subcuticular suture closure appears to be a favourable method of wound closure in CABG patients compared with the use of skin stapling techniques.

Cosmetic outcome of scalp wound closure with staples in the pediatric emergency department: A prospective, randomized trial

Stapling appears to be a fast and cosmetically acceptable alternative to suturing for simple scalp lacerations and there remained no significant difference in the final follow-up VAS score between groups when adjusted for covariates.

Subcuticular Suture Compared With Staples for Skin Closure After Cesarean Delivery: A Randomized Controlled Trial

Staples were preferred to subcuticular suture for skin closure by women after cesarean delivery in a randomized trial in which each woman was her own control.
