Southmedic proprietary product Trauma
ABRA Abdominal allows for the option of primary closure for retracted, mid-line abdominal defects.
Installation of the ABRA System pulls muscle planes and skin together from their lateral retracted state with relentless dynamic appositional traction, leaving the leading edge of the wound margins undisturbed when performing definitive primary closure.
An abdominal wound closure restores normal physiology, which in certain cases has been shown to reduce length of stay, short-term morbidity risks, and future healthcare costs.
ABRA Surgical closes retracted skin defects through chronic cyclic tension. A sound primary closure replaces skin grafting and the associated rehabilitation, pain, and loss of function.
ABRA Surgical is indicated for use in preventing, controlling, reducing, and closing retracted soft tissue defects.
ABRA Adhesive provides non-invasive closure of retracted skin defects. A sound primary closure replaces skin grafting and the associated rehabilitation, pain, and loss of function.
ABRA Adhesive is indicated for use in controlling, reducing, or closing retracted soft tissue defects. Application can occur bedside without trauma or the need for anesthesia. The adhesive is strong but gentle on skin, allowing for distribution of traction over a large surface area.
DynaClose provides an easy and non-invasive method to close retracted or dehisced wounds up to 5 cm in width. It acts dynamically, moving with skin as it is stretched, while always providing a consistent appositional force.
DynaClose provides a second chance at skin closure for failing wounds. The clear elastomeric strip is anchored by an adhesive fabric tape on either side. Continuous traction is maintained by regularly changing the DynaClose until the wound is closed.
DynaStretch strips are designed to aid in pre-surgical skin expansion. This expansion occurs secondarily to the continued cyclic stretching of the skin by Dynamic Tissue Systems. New surplus skin may be consistent with the surrounding tissue and can be used to span a tissue defect created by surgical excision. Gentle, dynamic tissue stretching prior to planned excision avoids leaving a skin defect and allows for a sound primary closure.
This system is non-invasive and can be applied days or weeks pre-op without hindering patient mobility or quality of life. Uses may include any procedure in which a skin graft site expansion is desired.
SutureSafe bridges and supports the closure of surgical incisions dynamically, allowing a cushion of skin movement while still pulling the wound margins together with gentle appositional traction. By doing so, SutureSafe may help reduce surgical site dehiscence.
SutureSafe is an alternative to static tape for areas of increased skin movement. It can be placed over top of sutures and staples. The Ripstop bridge limits extension of the silicone elastomer, while the adhesive fabric tape distributes forces across a large surface area.
