Watch this video to see how ABRA® Surgical Skin Closure System works.


The ABRA® Surgical Skin Closure system restores the primary closure option for retracted skin defects. Over time this dynamic wound closure system re-approximates the skin margins under low tension while normalising compartment pressures, eliminating the need to graft by enabling a primary closure.



  • Achieves primary closure
  • Normalises compartment pressures
  • Restores normal skin integrity
  • Eliminates need to skin graft



  • Promotes patient mobility
  • Reduces OR visits
  • Reduces hospital length of stay and costs
  • Reduces homecare expenses
