Incisive Surgical Issued Notice of Allowance for Key Absorbable Skin Stapler Patent
Date:9/28/2010

atent covering the INSORB Skin Closure Technology, and has additional patents pending.

"I believe the INSORB Stapler will revolutionize the way we handle wound closures in surgery today, and in most cases will replace existing technology," said K. Anthony Shibley, M.D., F.A.C.O.G., Obstetrics and Gynecology Specialists, P.A., Edina, Minn. "In addition to the increased comfort, convenience and the cosmetic advantages of the device, I have experienced a dramatic and significant reduction in surgical site infections and wound complications in my clinical experience with over 420 patients."

Prior to the launch of the INSORB Stapler, only two options were available for closure of long surgical incisions:  sutures or metal skin staples.  While sutures tend to deliver superior cosmetic results compared to metal skin staples — a less noticeable scar evidenced by a flatter, thinner lines, the process increases operating and anesthesia time for longer incisions.  This increases the cost and the potential for patient risk.  Metal staples puncture and pinch the skin, itch and catch on clothing, making them uncomfortable and more prone to infection.  Many patients refer to their metal staple incisions as "railroad track" scars.  Metal staples require removal which may be inconvenient, costly and painful.  The INSORB Stapler offers the comfort, cosmesis and convenience of suture with the speed of a metal stapler, while eliminating the need to remove staples post-operatively.  In addition, the INSORB Stapler eliminates the potential of needlesticks for the operating room staff, and may reduce the potential for wound complications, including surgical site infections.
