Cesarean Trial of Staples vs. Sutures

2014-07-23 22:00:29 | BioPortfolio

Summary

To determine whether the rate of wound complications differs based on method of closure of skin incision (staples vs. suture) after cesarean delivery.

Description

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.
