Findings Prove Time Savings for Surgeons, Strengthen Hope in Wound Infection Reduction for Orthopedic Patients
New research published in the February issue of Journal of Wound Care (JWC) concludes the unique micro-anchor skin closure device known as BandGrip is more than five times faster in closing
orthopedic incisions compared to traditional sutures. Surgeons have long believed infections can be associated with longer wound closure and overall recovery times. The time-savings finding in anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACLR), simple arthroscopy and general incisions could result in surgeons seeing fewer wound infections following surgery.
