Abstract

1. For management of simple lacerated wounds, tissue adhesive (Dermabond) achieved more positive outcomes but incurred higher cost, compared with standard sutures. 2. Dermabond may be more cost-effective than standard sutures from a societal viewpoint. 3. Use of sutures required more nursing time and additional costs from subsequent dressing, whereas use of Dermabond incurred higher equipment costs. 4. Dermabond achieved better appearance outcome and patient satisfaction, compared with sutures. 5. Pain levels were not significantly different in patients treated with Dermabond or sutures.
