Wound Closure Strips


Wound closure strips are porous surgical tape strips which can be used to close small wounds. They are applied across the laceration to pull the skin on either side of the wound together. Wound closure strips may be used instead of sutures (stitches) in some injuries because they lessen scarring and are easier to care for.

Wound closure strips are ideal for use in highly contoured areas or areas of musculoskeletal movements, such as joints. They are also for use in areas where swelling, edema, hematomas, or bloating may occur. 

Additionally, they provide wound support following early suture or staple removal. Wound closure strips may also be applied together with special glue to secure the wound

This product is not a substitute for direct medical attention from a healthcare practitioner.

Variations
  1. Reinforced skin closures: These are sterile skin closure strips that are made of a porous, non-woven backing coated with a pressure-sensitive, hypoallergenic adhesive and reinforced with polyester filaments for added strength. They provide general wound support for increased tensile strength and finer wound edge approximation.
  2. Blend tone skin closures non-reinforced: These are sterile, light beige skin closure strips made of a porous, non-woven backing coated with a pressure-sensitive, hypoallergenic adhesive. They are for use in areas where a cosmetically pleasing appearance is desirable, such as the face or arms. They blend with and allow the natural skin tone (of light beige people) to show through.
  3. Steri-Strips are paper-based, so durability can be compromised if they get wet. Products such as Leukostrip have been developed that are made of a synthetic material that will repel water and remain in place longer.
