Clips, Skin Suture

Definition : Clips designed to close skin wounds by permanently (i.e., after the suturing procedure is finished) holding together the edges of the skin tissue. These clips are typically small, usually metal, devices with sharp points properly angled to grasp skin efficiently and hold with minimal trauma; they are frequently applied using dedicated instruments (e.g., clip appliers). Typically, a set of implantable clips is applied in each procedure. Skin suture clips are single-use devices; they are available in nondegradable materials requiring removal after healing or as biodegradable (absorbable) devices.
