Details and patient eligibility


The goal of this randomized controlled study is to investigate the Efficacy of Using skin adhesive (Dermabond) and skin adhesive with polyester mesh (Dermabond Prineo )for Wound Closure in Total Knee Arthroplasty, The main question it aim to answer 1 Are skin adhesive alone and with Polyester mesh in Total knee arthroplasty different in Patient satisfaction evaluated by POSAS score

Full description

Nowadays, there are many methods of wound closure in Total Knee arthroplasty, such as nylon, skin staple, and sterile strip, which differ in advantages and disadvantages of each technique. However, these methods have the same disadvantages: wound discharge, which may lead to infection, wound separation, and the need for wound dressing. It is also a burden for patients and caregivers. In travelling to change the wound in a hospital, There are many costs in terms of wound dressing equipment, travel costs and time off from work for caregivers to take patients to get wound dressing. Skin adhesive is an innovation for wound closure in total knee arthroplasty. It reduces the problem of wound separation, with no need for wound dressing. Skin adhesive mesh has been studied in many studies, showing that it can be used well. Strong It is no different from traditional wound closure; the scar is more beautiful. Patients are more satisfied. But the disadvantage is the high price. Skin adhesive without polyester mesh has the advantage of being cheaper three times than polyester mesh but less intense than with mesh. This makes it unpopular. No studies have been found comparing wound dressings with mesh and no mesh After knee replacement surgery. Therefore, this study is to compare skin adhesive and skin adhesive plus polyester mesh in closure wound total knee arthroplasty. Are there differences in patient satisfaction Are wound complications such as wound oozing, wound separation, superficial wound skin infection, and contact dermatitis different?
