Instructions for Use

Application

  1.  Open pack by peeling apart side flaps.  Remove backing paper from either end and lift off one strip at a time.  Apply to intact skin on one side of wound, at right angles, using light pressure to ensure good adhesion. 

  2. Gently push wound edges together and adhere LEUKOSTRIP◊ wound closure strips to opposite side of cut, being careful not to overstretch strip.  

  3. The wound can then be covered with a wound pad such as MELOLIN◊, or an adhesive fabric dressing such as PRIMAPORE◊ or a waterproof dressing such as OPSITE◊ Post-Op. 

Dressing Removal

To remove LEUKOSTRIP◊, bathe the wound area with water and gently lift off from the middle, pulling away gently to the outside edges.

LEUKOSTRIP◊ wound closure strips can be removed after 3-5 days or once healing is advanced enough to ensure the wound is closed.
