ABSTRACT
The article presents current techniques and materials used for abdominal fascial wound and skin closure. Fast, easy, cost-effective, and has minimal early and late complications are the characteristics of ideal closure technique. Nothing has changed in skin closure techniques over the years for most procedures, but the use of skin clips, although fast, has not shown a clear benefit when compared with the use of sutures for abdominal fascial closure.
