    Within the realm of surgical decision-making, wound closure material is frequently overlooked.

However, the impact of closure material on non-infectious wound complications remains less defined. In this study, we aim to compare sutures and staples with regard to the clinical outcome of wound closure using the Hollander wound evaluation score (HWES) and Visual analogue patient satisfaction scale (VAS).
