"It is remarkable that some of the oldest technologies in wound management -- tapes and sutures -- still drive so much revenue, yet the continued disparity in annual growth rates between these products and advanced wound closure products underlies the continued penetration of the market by fibrin sealants, collagen sealants, bio-glues, cyanoacrylates (and their analogs) and post-surgical adhesion prevention products," says Patrick Driscoll of MedMarket Diligence, publisher of the 2012 Surgical Sealants report. According to Driscoll, the adoption of advanced wound closure products by a wide range of clinicians reflects the inherent utility of these products for varied wound management roles as much as it reflects a diligent effort by manufacturers to ensure that product performance (and cost) are compatible with the clinical management of wounds.
