SubQ It! is the only bioabsorbable skin closure system specifically designed for closing small incisions used in laparoscopic procedures.

Alternatives to SubQ It! for Closing Short Incisions

Skin Adhesive (2-octyl cyanoacrylate)

Requires holding edges closed (manuf. recommends >1 minute); incisions are less tolerant of tension forces.

Absorbable manual suture 

Technically challenging, more time consuming, risk to surgeon of needle stick, but preferred for short incisions (Am J Surg 2004, Jan; 187(1):24-7 "Optimal closure method of five-millimeter trocar sites")
