Background of Invention:

There are many wound closure techniques available in current market like Surgical Staples and Sutures, Dermabond, tapes, surgical zipper. These all are more complex and painful techniques, creating many problems like poor patient acceptance, skin reaction, marks on the skin, painful procedure, long procedure, removal of closure also difficult etc.

So, Novel Medicated wound closure Bio Fuse Patch was developed by Dr. Patel which is having many benefits like painless technique, easy to apply and remove, great patient compliance, fastening up of the healing process, no after marks etc.
