OpSite Incise Drape 17-3/4 x 21-5/8 is a transparent adhesive film dressing manufactured by Smith & Nephew. Constructed with a transparent, adhesive polyurethane film, Incise Drape allows the skin to breathe to prevnt moisture build-up under the drape. This OpSite Drape adheres throughout long surgeries, offering a conformable and extensive protective dressing. OpSite Incise adheres right up to the wound edge and is thin but extremely strong. The purpsoe of the Opsite Incise Drape is to provide a sterile working field around the operation site.
OpSite Incise Drape is very conformable on awkward operation sites, yet its elastic qualities make it suitable for use where heavy manipulative surgery is involved, for example, in a total hip replacement. OpSite Incise Drape provides a sterile working field, upon which internal organs may be placed without fear of contamination.
