The authors report the results of a multicenter prospective study evaluating a novel technology: dermal suture using absorbable staples composed of polylactic and polyglycolic acids. From January to June 2009, 59 dermal sutures were performed with Insorb absorbable staples and 41 with absorbable thread. All patients in the study underwent abdominal dermolipectomy (N = 65) or surgery for breast hypertrophy (N = 35). The purpose of the study was to compare the closure time and healing quality obtained with the 2 methods. Ninety-five patients were reexamined by the surgeon after 1 year of follow-up to assess scar width, suppleness, inflammation, and hypertrophy. The overall results were good and quite similar for the 2 groups. Thus, the use of Insorb staples reduced closure time while ensuring good healing quality.
