Brief Summary in Lay Language

This clinical study aims to assess whether the benefits of using Leukosan Adhesive on
trocar incisions are greater or equivalent to those provided by the standard therapy of
transcutaneous sutures.

In particular, it tests the long-term cosmetic result after 3 months, the safety and
tolerance, as well as the practicality of treatment with Leuksan Adhesive.

An open, randomised, controlled, prospective, single location, clinical study of women of
ages between 18 and 60 years within the time span of March 2013 and April 2013.

Brief Summary in Scientific Language

The medical devices compared were EU (European Union) approved market-ready products with
relevant designation according to the legal requirements for medical devices and according
to Council guideline 93/42/EWG dated 14th July.

Leukosan Adhesive is a sterile, ultra high viscose adhesive for external skin closure. Due
to the skin's moisture, this skin adhesive polymerizes within seconds into a flexible film
firmly holding the edges of the wound together and protecting the wound itself.

Premilene DSMP 24, 3/8 needle, thread 3/0 denier was used a a comparison. This suture
material was the standard suture material used in the study centre.

Primary Outcome

- Patient's satisfaction with cosmetic appearance/result of the wound; time frame: 3 months post operation; The primary outcome was the satisfaction of the patients with the cosmetic result of the wound healing after 3 months. This was measured by a visual analogue scale. In order to validate this result, an additional known wound assessment instrument, an ordinal scaled index, was implemented and the assessment of independent assessors was called on.

Secondary Outcome

- The incidence of complication; time frame: 7-12 days post-operation; 7-12 days post-operation patients were examined for complications in treatment such as wound dehiscence, maceration, redness, overheating and pain
- Intensity of pain; time frame: 7-12 days post-operation; 7-12 days post-operation patients were examined for intensity of pain
- Investigator's assessment of cosmetic outcome; time frame: At 3 months post-operation; The Investigator examined patients to assess the cosmetic outcome.
