New Wound Closure Technology Set To Triple In Value By 2025, Cannibalize Competitors
New Wound Closure Technology Set To Triple In Value By 2025, Cannibalize Competitors

Traditionally, surgical wounds have been closed with sutures, staples, Steri-strips, Mastisol, or some combination thereof. There are multiple benefits to using these technologies, but new products are expected to significantly improve the way surgeons close wounds. Ethicon’s Dermabond Prineo mesh and cyanoacrylate-based skin closure systems, as well as Zipline Medical’s Zip Surgical Skin Closure, are new products that recently have become popular for surgical wound closure. This rise in popularity is cannibalizing older forms of wound closure, such as sutures, staplers, and skin closure strips.
