Smith & Nephew Leukoclip SD Skin Stapling Cartridge

Leukoclip SD is a semi-disposable skin stapler for wound closure with a patented 'B' shaped staple that reduces tissue damage and scarring. Leukoclip SD consists of two components: a reusable handle that is autoclavable and a disposable magazine/cartridge containing 10 or 35 staples. The staples are flexible, adapt to wound swelling and do not disturb normal blood flow.

Features:

Easy to use

The set up angle and the shape of the device enables a clear view of the wound edges. The precise grinding of the tips and the rounded sidepieces of the clips result in a very fine puncture.

Automatic clip ejection

Leukoclip SD quickly and precisely ejects staples enabling rapid wound closure, resulting in shortened operating time and reducing the risk to patients.

B-shaped staple for better wound healing

In the case of wound edge oedema, the special B-shaped staple partially adapts to the swelling and causes minimum trauma leading to better wound healing results.

Minimises scarring

Scarring is minimised due to the precise grinding of the tips and rounded staple sidepieces.

Special clip design

In wound edge oedema, Leukoclip SD adjusts to the swelling and causes minimum trauma.

Reusable handle

After steam sterilisation, the handle can be reused up to 100 times.Sterile while packaged and undamaged.

Contraindications and Precautions:

The use of the skin-clip unit is inadvisable when a minimum distance of 5mm between the skin clips and the vessels, internal organs, or bony prominences (e.g. the skull) below them cannot be maintained. In the case of wounds with extreme subcutaneous fatty tissue, additional measures may be necessary to close the skin. Do not use on patients with a known sensitivity to nickel.
