Wound Closure

DERMABOND® Mini Topical Skin Adhesive

Overview

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.1,170,171

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

DERMABOND Mini is part of the DERMABOND® Portfolio. Each product in the DERMABOND Portfolio provides strong, protective, and efficient closure.1,117,192,193

The products in the DERMABOND Portfolio are supported by more clinical evidence, outcomes data, and publications than any other Topical Skin Adhesive.1

Science & Technology

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.1,170,171

Excellent outcomes can be achieved if a skin closure device:

  • Provides the strength to maintain skin edges so that they remain approximated and level
  • Distributes tension along the entire incision, adding uniform strength to the incision and preventing skin gaps from forming when the skin is stressed
  • Creates a strong, flexible barrier to prevent bacteria from entering the incision until the epidermis has fully healed

DERMABOND Mini has a propriety formulation consisting of:

DERMABOND Venn Diagram
  • A highly purified 2-octylcyanoacrylate monomer, which, after polymerization is stronger, more flexible, and less brittle than other cyanoacrylates.1
  • A chemical initiator in the applicator tip to ensure consistent, reliable polymerization times202
  • Formulation additives to enhance strength, flexibility, and adherence to the skin202

The unique and proprietary formulation of DERMABOND Mini helps protect patients by maintaining wound integrity.117,193 DERMABOND Mini is supported by more clinical evidence and real-world data than any competing product.1

Hospitalization costs

In a retrospective analysis of over 155,000 C-sections,

  • Hospitalization costs for the group in which DERMABOND Adhesive was used were on average lower by $500207
  • Patients on whom DERMABOND Adhesive was used had lower nonprophylactic antibiotic usage after Day 4 compared to patients closed with sutures or staples207
Hospitalization bar graph

DERMABOND Mini has been shown in head-to-head testing to be equivalent or superior to DERMABOND Adhesive in all major performance categories.

Length of hospitalization

In a retrospective study of 1,3000 CABG patients post-operative hospital days were significanlty reduced from a median of 13 days to 9 days for patients in whom DERMABOND Adhesive was used.208
