Abstract
Background
Skin approximation is a very important step in a surgical operation. The quality of skin approximation affects the quality of the scar. Traditional skin suturing is associated with quite a few wound complications. Staple approximation is an innovative alternative with good results.
Aim:
The aim of the study is to compare traditional suturing of skin edges versus staple approximation and to evaluate the impact of these techniques on wound complications such as pain, surgical site infections, scarring and patient satisfaction.
Materials and methods: 150 patients are included in study and divided into two groups. Group A (skin suturing) and group B (staple approximation). The effect of the technique on wound healing is evaluated.
Results: Patients belonging to group B (staple approximation) had less pain, shorter duration of skin closure, no wound complications, fine scarring and greater patient satisfaction.
Conclusion: Staple approximation of skin edges during closure of laparotomy incisions is recommended.

Key words: Skin suturing stapling complications scarring
