Clinical Trial Summary

Despite the high numbers of cesareans being performed, scientific evidence behind which surgical techniques are best remains uncertain. Our objective is to determine if subcuticular absorbable staples improve operative time and wound cosmetics.


Clinical Trial Description

This will be an open-label randomized controlled clinical trial. Women undergoing cesarean delivery will be randomized to have either standard wound closure with Monocryl suture or absorbable subcuticular staples placed by INSORB skin stapling device. The INSORB under the skin stapling device is FDA approved but not currently used as standard of care at UTMB. We will exclude women with intraamniotic infection, immunosuppression, active skin infection, those unlikely to be followed-up after delivery, or unable to provide consent. ;
