Cierres de incisiones

Toggle: English / Spanish

Una incisión se puede cerrar con:

  • Suturas (puntos) en la parte externa del cuerpo
  • Grapas quirúrgicas, las cuales le brindan resistencia adicional a la incisión
  • Suturas en la parte interna, por debajo de la piel 

Se pueden colocar pequeñas tiras adhesivas (llamadas Steri-strips) sobre la piel a lo largo de la línea de la incisión. Estas tiras se desprenderán cuando la incisión haya sanado.
