Steri-Strip skin closures are strips of porous nonwoven backing material, coated with hypoallergenic pressure-sensitive adhesive and reinforced with filaments for added strength.
You can rely on 3M™ Steri-Strip™ R1541 Adhesive Skin Sutures for fast and easy wound suturing, while reducing the risk of infection. Using 3M™ Steri-Strip™ Skin Adhesive Sutures gives the wound greater tensile strength, which reduces puncture or hatch marks more than those produced by sutures or staples. Studies have shown that in clean-contaminated and contaminated wounds, 3M™ Steri-Strip™ Skin Adhesive Sutures have a lower rate of infection than wounds closed with invasive sutures or staples. In addition, the non-invasive technique reduces tissue trauma and thus improves patient comfort.
