Clinical Benefits

Skin relaxation is twice as effective as wide undermining with fewer complications, and saves time and improves patient outcomes.

When skin is held under high tension, it will relax over a relatively short period of time. Clinical research done using the SUTUREGARD® ISR Retention Suture Device and method on human scalp wound closures showed that scalp wounds were under 65% lower tension after 30 minutes of our intraoperative skin relaxation protocol.

Compared to other skin relaxation methods, the SUTUREGARD® ISR Retention Suture Device is gentle on the skin. Pulley sutures and towel clamps are "all-or-none" procedures that can crush the skin. And compared to other marketed devices, the SUTUREGARD® ISR Device requires fewer punctures to the skin.

Circular (1:1 length-to-width ratio) defects become elliptical (approximately 2:1) after 30 minutes of stretch which saves surgical time and shortens scars.

Skin flaps and skin grafts require additional wounds and more trauma to the skin. Fewer and less traumatic wound repairs decreases wound healing complications and time to healing, and saves payers money. Repairing a scalp wound with a graft or flap disrupts the natural hairline but with the SUTUREGARD® ISR Retention Suture Device, the natural hairline can be more closely replicated. Surgeons using the SUTUREGARD® ISR Retention Suture Device for scalp repairs have decreased their rate of scalp flaps or grafts by 95%.
