Code: WDR408

Skin that has been injured in an accident or by a surgical intervention traditionally is closed using sutures or staples. Alternatively, surgeons can use a tissue adhesive. The tissue adhesive Histoacryl® consists of monomeric n-butyl-2-cyanoacrylate, which polymerises quickly in connection with tissue fluid. Histoacryl® is dyed to enable easy visibility. For facial applications, a translucent version, Histoacryl® L, is available. Histoacryl® is supplied in a sterile plastic ampoule with a twist-off tip. In many countries, Histoacryl® is also indicated for sclerosation therapy of esophageal and fundal varices. These varices are a common and dangerous consequence of portal hypertension.
