Two of the more frequently used options for skin closure following a cesarean delivery include staples or sutures (stitches). Another method of closure is Dermabond- liquid skin adhesive. This method of closure is used less frequently than either staples or sutures.

Few studies have been done regarding whether Dermabond is preferable or affect the outcome of a cesarean section surgery. The aim of our study is to find weather Dermabond haas better result for the closure of cesarean section wounds.
