1 mm microstaples embedded in an adhesive strip anchor to the skin
KitoTech Medical introduced two new versions of its family of proprietary wound closure products, microMend®, at the recent American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP) Scientific Assembly in Denver, Co. The expansion of the product portfolio allows microMend to be used to close the vast majority of wounds encountered in clinical practice.
The microMend closure device has secured a place in my practice due to reliable results, ease of use, and economy. microMend will change your surgical practice to the benefit of you and your patients.
microMend is a clever innovation, quick and easy to apply, that results in inconspicuous, well-healed incisions for minimally invasive surgery. My patients and I are both extremely happy with the results.
I really like microMend. Application is quick and painless. Removal is easy and much faster than suture removal. The results have been excellent.
My impressions are really positive; the device is really easy to use, and I think the incisions are less inflamed at suture removal than when I use sutures. Wound care is easier for the patients as well, since the wound is covered and they aren't cleaning it and dressing it with ointment.
One of the main advantages of the device is the elimination of ‘railroad track’ suture marks. This goes along with the general diminution of wound inflammation. The ease of application and removal are major time-saving factors for the surgeon.
microMend is a well conceived, simple, and effective wound closure device. It is quick, easy to use, and provides a viable alternative to suture closure of wounds. It also produces a good quality scar. As an added bonus it can be removed by the patient, thus avoiding another visit to the provider for removal.
It provides safe, secure and very rapid skin closure for a variety of incisions and lacerations. Examples of the product's applications are in surgeries such as the following: Dermatologic (excisions, skin biopsies, and Mohs procedures), Ortho/Spinal (discectomies), General (laparascopic) as well as in ER / Urgent Care settings.
microMend is offered in various sizes for different applications:
FDA listed Class 1 medical device
The technology is protected by two patent applications, which cover all aspects of the device and its clinical uses.
