Wound Closure Manual By Ethicon
This manual has been prepared for the medical professional who
would like to learn more about the practice of surgery–the
dynamics of tissue healing, the principles of wound closure, and the
materials available to today’s practitioners. Most important, it
touches on some of the critical decisions which must be made on a
daily basis to help ensure proper wound closure.
ETHICON PRODUCTS, a Johnson & Johnson company, is the
world’s leading marketer of surgical sutures and is the only U.S.
company that offers an adhesive with microbial protection as an
alternative to sutures for topical skin closure.
ETHICON enjoys a reputation for developing quality products to
enhance the lives of patients and for providing outstanding service
to customers. We hope you find this manual useful. But, above all,
we hope that it reflects our high regard for the men and women
who have chosen the medical profession as a career.
