DERMABOND® Portfolio

ETHICON

Secure skin closure is an integral step of nearly every surgical procedure. If the closure device does not provide the strength and support required by the skin tissue, the wound edges may separate, providing a potential pathway for bacterial contamination, which can lead to infection, suboptimal cosmesis, and low patient satisfaction.

Each product in the DERMABOND Portfolio provides strong, protective, and efficient closure. All products  in the DERMABOND Portfolio are supported by more clinical evidence, outcomes data, and publications than any other topical skin adhesive.

1. DERMABOND ADVANCED® Topical Skin Adhesive

DERMABOND ADVANCED Adhesive can add strength and protection to an incision.

  • Strength: When used in addition to sutures, DERMABOND ADVANCED Adhesive was shown ex vivo to add 75% more strength to wound closure than sutures alone
  • Microbial barrier: DERMABOND ADVANCED Adhesive provides a microbial barrier with 99% protection in vitro for at least 72 hours against organisms commonly responsible for surgical site infections (SSIs),117,192
  • Inhibition of bacteria: DERMABOND ADVANCED Adhesive demonstrated in vitro inhibition of gram-positive bacteria (MRSA & MRSE) and gram-negative bacteria (E. coli)

2. DERMABOND PRINEO® Skin Closure System

DERMABOND PRINEO System is a unique two-part skin closure system consisting of:

  • A 2-octyl cyanoacrylate topical skin adhesive for proven strength and microbial protection in vitro1
  • A flexible, self-adhesive polyester mesh for excellent approximation and healing

DERMABOND PRINEO System can add strength and protection when closing medium to long incisions.

Strong:

  • DERMABOND PRINEO System can replace use of subcuticular sutures for skin closure. It has tissue holding strength equivalent to 3-0 MONOCRYL® (poliglecaprone 25) Sutures (shown ex-vivo)
  • DERMABOND PRINEO System was shown to provide statistically significant greater skin holding strength than skin staples or subcuticular suture

Protective:

  • Provides a flexible microbial barrier with 99% protection in vitro for 72 hours against organisms commonly responsible for surgical site infections (SSIs)117,
  • DERMABOND PRINEO System demonstrated in vitro inhibition of gram positive (MRSA and MRSE) and gram negative bacteria (E. coli)

Efficient:

May reduce final layer of skin closure time up to 75%

3. DERMABOND® Mini Topical Skin Adhesive

DERMABOND Mini is a skin closure device that can be used to close easily approximated skin edges of wounds from small surgical incisions and lacerations.

DERMABOND Mini provides a protective barrier that adds strength and inhibits bacteria:

  • Strength: Clinically shown to provide 7-day wound-holding strength in just 3 minutes192
  • Microbial barrier: Provides a flexible microbial barrier with 99% protection in vitro for 72 hours against organisms commonly responsible for surgical site infections (SSIs)*,117
  • Inhibition of bacteria: Demonstrates in vitro inhibition of gram-positive bacteria (MRSA and MRSE) and gram-negative bacteria (E coli)†

Furthermore, DERMABOND Mini’s unique formulation provides added value:

Promotes patient comfort by providing flexible closure without the pain or anxiety caused by needles
Offers fast closure of small incisions and lacerations
Addresses cost and convenience concerns by eliminating the need for return visits to remove sutures
