The Subcuticular Tissue Insert is for use in the practice of all common closure methods. The tissue plate is made of 5 layers developed to match the feel of epidermis, dermis, fat, muscle, and includes an enhanced subcuticular layer. The subcuticular layer can be punctured from the side and will hold a suture to simulate pulling together of tissue. The fat layer realistically dissects and will not hold a stitch. All layers accept adhesive and bandage closure methods. The product is completely animal friendly and mess free. During use, the skin layer does not propagate a tear and will appropriately hold a suture. Tissue plates can be saved for evaluation or reused multiple times. Size is approximately 12.5" X 4.5"
