Cesarean Trial of Staples vs. Sutures
To determine whether the rate of wound complications differs based on method of closure of skin incision (staples vs. suture) after cesarean delivery.
Despite this large number of cesareans performed annually, there is a paucity of data to suggest which technique is superior for closure of the skin incision with regards to wound complications, including wound separation and infection. As the morbidity associated with a cesarean delivery is usually related to wound complications, especially infection, we feel that it is important to examine this outcome by comparing the current skin closure techniques: staples versus suture.

Respiratory Distress Syndrome, Newborn
A condition of the newborn marked by DYSPNEA with CYANOSIS, heralded by such prodromal signs as dilatation of the alae nasi, expiratory grunt, and retraction of the suprasternal notch or costal margins, mostly frequently occurring in premature infants, children of diabetic mothers, and infants delivered by cesarean section, and sometimes with no apparent predisposing cause.
Implants used in arthroscopic surgery and other orthopedic procedures to attach soft tissue to bone. One end of a suture is tied to soft tissue and the other end to the implant. The anchors are made of a variety of materials including titanium, stainless steel, or absorbable polymers.
The objective of this randomized controlled trial is to compare wound morbidity (including disruption and infection) in surgical staples versus absorbable subcuticular suture for wound clo...
