Surgical Staples Are Becoming Bioabsorbable With The Help of Proto Labs

Revolutionizing Surgical Staples Quick-turn contract manufacturer Proto Labs is playing an important role helping Opus KSD (Peacham, Vt.) ramp up production of  SubQ It! –disposable, handheld surgical staples that use bioabsorbable fasteners beneath the skin. Health practitioners generally use bioabsorbable, thread-like material or a surgical stapler with metal staples to close the small openings created during laparoscopic surgery.
