A Comparative Study between Conventional Sutures, Staples and Adhesive Glue for Clean Elective Surgical Skin Closure
Journal of Pharmaceutical Research International,
Background: A surgeon's signature is 'scar' . On a regular basis, surgeons face various kinds of wounds which must be healed. The healing process and cosmetic result can be influenced by wound and incision closure techniques.
The Goal of this Research is to Compare 3 Skin Closure Techniques: conventional skin sutures, adhesive glue, surgical stapler. These methods will be used to determine which of them is superior in terms of wound healing and cosmetic outcome in clean elective surgeries.
- To compare duration between closure by 3 methods.
- To compare prices amongst the 3 methods.
- A comparison of the cosmetic appearances of the skin after closure.
- A comparison of post-operative pain between the 3 methods.
- To assess surgical site infections after closure with these 3 methods
Methodology: 90 patients, undergoing clean elective surgeries, will be included in this study. 30 patients will be included in every group. Hospitalised under Department of General Surgery in Datta Meghe Institute Of Medical Sciences, Wardha. The study will be conducted between October 2020 to October 2022.
Results: The result would be undertaken in SPSS software.
Conclusion: Conclusion will be based on findings of study protocol.
- Skin sutures
- adhesive glue
- incisions wound
