    A meta-analysis investigation was executed to measure the outcome of sutured wounds (SWs) compared with tissue adhesive (TA) for paediatric wound closure (PWC). A comprehensive literature inspection till February 2023 was applied and 2018 interrelated investigations were reviewed. The 18 chosen investigations enclosed 1697 children with PWC in the chosen investigations' starting point, 977 of them were utilising SWs, and 906 were utilising TA. Odds ratio (OR) in addition to 95% confidence intervals (CIs) were used to compute the value of the effect of SWs compared with TA for PWC by the dichotomous approaches and a fixed or random model. SWs had significantly higher wound cosmetic (WC) scores (mean deviation [MD], 1.70; 95% CI, 0.57-2.84, P = .003), lower wound dehiscence (WD) (OR 0.60; 95% CI, 0.06-0.43, P < .001), and lower cost (MD, -10.22; 95% CI, -10.94 to -9.50, P < .001) compared with those with TA in PWC. No significant difference was found between children utilising SWs and TA in wound infection (WI) (OR, 0.45; 95% CI, 0.15-1.30, P = .14) with no heterogeneity (I2  = 0%) in PWC. SWs had significantly higher WC scores, lower WD, and lower cost, yet, no significant difference was found in WI compared with those with TA in PWC. However, care must be exercised when dealing with its values because of the low sample size of some of the nominated investigations and the low number of selected investigations for the meta-analysis. © 2023 The Authors.
