Aims The skin suture is one of the inseparable sections of all surgeries; therefore, using noninvasive methods could be very applicable. The skin stapler is one of the methods which is commonly used for skin and is fast. This is while it is risky and may lead to an infection and undesirable cosmetic results. The current study aimed to analyze the noninvasive Zipline™ suture and to compare it with the stapler.
Materials and Methods This experimental study was conducted at the University of Isfahan and 15 operating room technicians who experienced all three methods of suturing were questioned. The noninvasive Zipline™ suture was structurally analyzed and tested for the power of skin protection and flexibility by tensioning. An artificial skin was tested and tensioned 1cm from each side and the space of the incision between the edges was measured. Findings The Zipline™ suture had a low incision edge space, a good cosmetic outcome, low pain, and low risks of developing an infection considering the viewpoints of those who voted. The structure of Zipline™ which was zigzag led to a high rate of flexibility from one side and created more strength from another side.
Conclusion A high strength rate and installation speed of this noninvasive suture (Zipline™) which can be used in many operations and substitute for invasive sutures. It should be considered that the Zipline™ suture can only be used for the skin and the suture of dermal tissue should be tightly done before using in surgeries.
