Abstract

Introduction: A T-Skin stapler is a type of skin staple commonly used in the closure of surgical wounds on skin
slices. Quick and accurate treatment of patients is required. However, there is still limited research comparing
the handling speed of the tool with other skin staples.
Method: We used a T-Skin stapler that is built of sterile grade 317 L medical metal with code SS1 and the
surgical thread type T-Silk no. 330 with code S21. We created numerous portions in goat experimental animals
that were aged over 2-3 years and weighed more than 20.5-26 kg after randomly inflicting gout on animals with
surgical incision wounds (10 cm).
Result: The T-Skin stapler and surgical threads had comparable results with respect to wound closure, but the TSkin
stapler was faster in all steps observed. A comparison of the speed of surgical wounds with a stapler was
found to be 6.3 times faster than using sutures with surgical threads. The time used to remove the staples was an
average of 92.4 seconds, while the time taken for thread removal was 110.6 seconds.
Conclusion: The T-Skin stapler and surgical threads had comparable results with respect to wound closure;
however, the T-Skin stapler was faster in all steps observed.
