New 3M™ Steri-Strip™ S Surgical Skin Closure is a non-invasive, adhesive-based wound closure device designed to treat incisions painlessly and without the use of needles.
Steri-Strip S Surgical Skin Closure is indicated for primary closure of low-tension lacerations and surgical incisions. The device is designed for fast application with precise wound edge alignment and good cosmetic results. It is constructed of soft polyurethane pads and interlaced polyester filaments to provide a strong, secure skin closure.
The device is available in widths from 10mm to 100mm and devices can be combined to achieve the length needed or to close a curved wound.
The large 40, 50 and 60mm sizes and the small 20 and 30mm sizes are used most often. Sizes may be mixed and matched. Devices such as the large 60-80mm are used on long linear incisions. Sizes such as the large 40-60mm may be used to close linear segments on curved incisions. The small devices may be used to close smaller lacerations, incisions or excision sites.
