Our regular coverage of developments in the field of surgical sealants, hemostasis, wound closure and anti-adhesion, most recently through Report #S180, entails the full potential caseload of patients targeted by these technologies and therefore necessarily encompasses more traditional wound closure methods, such as sutures, staples and clips.
