SINOPSIS

The purpose of this article is to provide a collective review of the literature on skin staplers. On the basis of this review, the Auto Suture Multifire Premium™, with its regular and wide metal staples, is recommended for skin closure. The Auto Suture Multifire Graftac-S™ is ideally suited for skin-graft fixation, because it delivers an absorbable staple that usually does not have to be removed from the healing graft. Dermal skin closure can now be achieved using the Auto Suture SQS-20™, which coapts the cut dermal edges with an absorbable straight pin. Dermal wound approximation can be accomplished in significantly less time than dermal suture closure.
