NCT ID: NCT01996917 Completed - Post-operative Scar Clinical Trials

Use of Prineo in Breast Reduction Surgery

Start date: August 2014
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

This is a prospective, randomized, controlled, single-blinded study to compare Prineo™ with subcuticular sutures in 20 women undergoing bilateral breast reduction. For each patient, the final skin layer of one breast will be closed with subcuticular suture while the other breast will be closed with Prineo™. The treatment will be randomized to left or right breast. Therefore, the investigators will have 20 breasts in the suture group and 20 in the Prineo™ group, with each patient serving as her own control. For this study, the resident will close one side with suture and Dr. Rohde will apply the Prineo. The investigators will perform this study of incision closure under conditions as similar to normal conditions of closure.
