Staples, Skin

Definition : Staples designed to join cut skin edges. These staples are usually U-shaped metallic wires that are conformed into a rectangular shape as they are driven into the tissue to properly approximate and evert the border of the incision and allow easy removal. Skin staples are typically delivered by staplers one at a time, following a very different pattern than that used in internal surgery and avoiding tissue compression for better cosmetic results; they are usually available in two sizes, regular and wide (3.5 mm and 4.2 mm width, respectively).
