So why not use them?
I close all wounds with sutures under the skin and glue over the wound. It's harder to do and takes more time but I think this kind of closure has a number of advantages. Patients can shower much sooner and generally have much better looking wounds with the glue closure. There is also mounting evidence, that stapled wounds can lead to a higher rate of wound infection than wounds that are glued.
Overall, patients are much happier with no staples to remove and no "railroad" type marks on their skin.
