MicroMend® incorporates the key features needed for optimal wound closure. It is designed like a butterfly bandage so it can be applied easily and painlessly in seconds. Microstaples allow the device to achieve the holding strength of sutures. microMend can close wounds of a broad range of lengths and shapes. In a direct comparison, closing wounds with microMend was shown to achieve superior cosmetic results to sutures due to reduced skin irritation and wound trauma.
microMend creates uniform tension along the wound which reduces inflammation. In addition, narrow spacing of Microstaples eliminates wound gaps. More consistent outcomes are achieved by the fixed positions of Microstaples and the elimination of variability related to surgical skills.
