An Observational Study of Skin Closure by Conventional Suture Verses Stapler in Clean Surgical Wound

1.1. Background: Suture application is the technique of choice for the approximation of skin margins in surgical wounds. The same procedure as when applying staplers is faster and brings better cosmetic results. A comparative study was conducted between conventional suture and skin closure of surgical wounds using a stapler to investigate the advantages and disadvantages of these techniques. The aim was to study the time duration needed to close surgical wounds, the aesthetic result, postoperative complications like surgical site infections, post-operative pain, etc and patient compliance.
