Abstract: In cases of auricular surgery, postoperative dressings are thought to be important for keeping auricular contour and in helping to prevent from dressing failures due to edema or subcutaneous hematoma, which may result in fibrous or cartilaginous proliferation. However, it is often difficult to achieve success with standard dressings because of the complicated shape of the auricle. We used 2-octyl-cyanoacrylate skin adhesive to dress the auricle after different types of auricular procedures (five cases of cryptotia, two of prominent ear, two of severe auricular laceration, two of skin grafting and one of flap repair of the partial auricle defect). The 2-octyl-cyanoacrlaate skin adhesive was applied to the suture line and the operated and peripheral areas for wider coverage. No dressing materials were placed over the surface. In all cases, the desired outcome was achieved, without subcutaneous hematoma, wound dehiscence, and wound infection. Contact dermatitis caused by the skin adhesive was not observed in any of the cases. Dressing and splinting after auricular surgery can be simply and successfully achieved using 2-octyl-cyanoacrylate skin adhesive. There is no need for more complicated dressings and post-surgical dressing changes, resulting in higher patient satisfaction.

Abstract: Objective. To compare the quality of resulting scar at 6 weeks after total thyroidectomy with the use of the tissue adhesive octyl-cyanoacrylate or subcuticular absorbable suture for the closure of cervicotomy. Material and Methods. There are 50 patients undergoing a cervicotomy for total thyroidectomy. Twenty-five patients were randomly assigned to closure with tissue adhesive and 25 with subcuticular absorbable suture. At week 6 the scar was evaluated by blinded assessors with the Italian version of POSAS questionnaire, a validated wound scale composed of an observer’s and a patient’s subscale. Results. Assessment of scar appearance showed a statistically significant difference ( ) in favor of subcuticular suture with respect to tissue adhesive on observer’s assessment. The difference on patients’ self-assessment was not significant. A multivariate analysis of six qualitative features of scars showed a significant influence on assessment for hyperpigmentation and relief of scar. The Italian version of POSAS proved to be reliable. Conclusion. Though tissue adhesive represents a valid method of skin closure, subcuticular absorbable suture provides a better aesthetic outcome in small cervical incisions in the early phase after thyroid surgery. 1. Background Aesthetic outcome is particularly relevant in thyroid surgery since patients are mostly women and young adults and since the incision is in a highly sensitive and visible anatomic location. Cosmetic concern about the final scar appearance contributed to motivate the development of minimally invasive approaches for thyroid surgery and parathyroid surgery over the last decade [1–3]. Minimally invasive thyroid surgery techniques (MIT) are different but all share the same goals: reduction of tissue trauma, early hospital discharge, and better neck wound cosmetic appearance, while maintaining the same surgical outcome as traditional thyroidectomy [4]. In addition to MIT, methods of skin closure contribute to the overall aesthetic outcome and patient’s satisfaction. Methods of skin closure vary in published series and are largely the results of surgeon’s choice based upon the need for a rapid, economic, and reproducible technique [5]. Skin closure techniques include the use of the tissue adhesive octyl-cyanoacrylate, introduced 15 years ago in clinical practice as an ideal system of wound closure [6]. Many studies showed that tissue adhesive is an acceptable alternative to standard wound closure since it yields similar clinical and aesthetic results, even if early wound dehiscence occurs in the 1% to 5% of

Abstract: Motonori Okabe,1 Kiyotaka Kitagawa,2 Toshiko Yoshida,1 Chika Koike,1 Takeshi Katsumoto,2 Etsuko Fujihara,2 Toshio Nikaido1 1Department of Regenerative Medicine, University of Toyama, Graduate School of Medicine and Pharmaceutical Sciences, Toyama, 2Division of Ophthalmology, Matsue Red Cross Hospital, Japanese Red Cross Society, Shimane, Japan Background: This paper reports on the efficacy of a tissue adhesive, 2-octyl-cyanoacrylate, in the treatment of corneal perforation and glaucoma filtering bleb leak. Methods: Two eyes from two patients with corneal perforation or laceration and two eyes from two patients with bleb leak were included. The patients underwent application of 2-octyl-cyanoacrylate onto the perforated or leaking site, and a hydrogel contact lens was applied as a bandage. We also evaluated the in vitro cell toxicity of 2-octyl-cyanoacrylate in HeLa cells. Results: The two cases of corneal perforation were repaired within 22 days with one application of the tissue adhesive. The two cases of bleb leak were repaired with 2–4 applications of the tissue adhesive over 134 (range 17–134) days). There were no recurrences or adverse effects during a mean follow-up period of 12.7 months. In vitro testing revealed that 2-octyl-cyanoacrylate was markedly toxic to HeLa cells. Conclusion: Four patients with corneal perforation or bleb leak were successfully managed using 2-octyl-cyanoacrylate tissue adhesive. This simple and easy surgical technique may become an alternative therapeutic option for corneal perforation or bleb leak, although several applications of this tissue adhesive may be required. Although 2-octyl-cyanoacrylate was toxic to HeLa cells, no adverse clinical effects were noted using this adhesive. Keywords: corneal perforation, bleb leak, tissue adhesive, 2-octyl-cyanoacrylate

Abstract: the use of ethyl-cyanoacrylate and octyl-cyanoacrylate were clinically and histopathologically compared on the corneas of 36 rabbits after lamellar keratectomy (standardized diameter and depth). the animals were distributed into two groups, one for each type of adhesive. from each group, six subgroups were histopathologically evaluated on the 3rd, 7th, 14th, 21st, 30th, and 60th day post-operative. general (daily) and ophthalmic (days 0, 1, 3, 5, 7, 14, 21, 30, 44, and 60) evaluations clinically indicated that there were significant differences for the variables water intake, attitude, blepharitis, corneal edema, and fluorescein test. the adhesive permanence time for octyl-cyanoacrylate (17.22 days) was greater than that for ethyl-cyanoacrylate (7.66 days). with respect to the histopathological evaluation, corneal epithelization and collagen organization occurred without severe complications. however, treatment with ethyl-cyanoacrylate led to a moderate inflammatory reaction in the initial phases. with octyl-cyanoacrylate, re-epithelization and collagen organization proceeded more slowly with a discrete inflammatory reaction in the initial phases. from clinical and histopathologic points of view, octyl-cyanoacrylate showed advantages over ethyl-cyanoacrylate, whereas wound healing was achieved in both groups without major complications.

Abstract: Introducción: el cianoacrilato es un líquido incoloro con propiedades adhesivas. Se emplea habitualmente en trabajos de bricolaje. En medicina y odontología ha sido utilizado generalmente como sutura de piel. Material y métodos: se hizo una revisión bibliográfica acerca del cianoacrilato y su uso en medicina y odontología. Resultados: en diferentes tablas se recogen productos comerciales que contienen cianoacrilato, sus utilidades no médicas, los requisitos para uso médico, aplicaciones en medicina y odontología, y sus efectos nocivos. Discusión: Los cianoacrilatos de cadena corta (etil y metilcianoacrilato) no son aptos para uso médico, pues se degradan rápidamente dando productos tóxicos. Sin embargo se emplean de cadena larga (octil y butilcianoacrilato) que dan menos toxicidad. Se aconseja emplear en zonas superficiales y libres de tensión. Introduction: Cyanoacrylate is a colorless liquid with adhesive properties. It is commonly used in DIY work. In medicine and dentistry, it has been widely used as a skin suture. Material and methods: A literature review was made of cyanoacrylate and its use in medicine and dentistry. Results: In different tables are commercial products containing cyanoacrylate, general utilities, requirements for medical use, medical and dental applications, and its harmful effects. Discussion: The short-chain cyanoacrylates (ethyl and methylcyanoacrylate) are not suitable for medical use, because they degrade quickly giving toxic products. However long chain used (octyl and butylcyanoacrylate) to offer less toxicity. It is recommended for surface areas and tension free.

Abstract: ObjectiveTo investigate the efficacy and safety of percutaneous transhepatic variceal embolization (PTVE) performed with 2-Octyl-cyanoacrylate (2-OCA) tissue adhesive for treating recurrent hepatic encephalopathy (HE) involving large portosystemic shunts. MethodsTwelve cirrhotic patients (8 males, 4 females; mean age: 62 years old) with recurrent HE (≥3 episodes/year, despite drug therapy) were treated by PTVE with 2-OCA. The surgery was performed under local anesthesia with B ultrasound- or X-ray-guided percutaneous needle injection of the adhesive into the hepatic portal vein with balloon dilation to occlude the portosystemic shunts. Preoperative and postoperative clinical and laboratory parameters, including HE episodes, with or without gastrointestinal bleeding, markers of liver and renal function and coagulation indicators, were recorded. Significance of surgery-induced change in portal vein pressure was assessed by paired t-test. ResultsThe PTVE was performed successfully in all 12 patients. The average injected volume of 2-OCA was 8.6 ml (range: 4-16 ml). The most frequent postoperative complications were pyrexia (6/12, 50.0%) and abdominal pain (5/12, 41.7%). The mean follow-up period was 22.7±9.8 months (range: 6-37 months). During the follow-up period, two patients (16.7%) developed transient ascites and two (16.7%) patients developed upper gastrointestinal bleeding (due to esophageal varices and portal hypertensive gastropathy, respectively). In addition, three patients (25.0%) experienced HE recurrence (at postoperative months 16, 19, and 30, respectively). Two patients (16.7%) died, one from progression of hepatic failure and the other from liver cancer. In general, the PTVE procedure significantly increased the portal pressure (preoperative: (21.9±1.8) mm Hg vs. postoperative: (26.3±3.2) mm Hg; P=000). ConclusionPTVE with 2-OCA is an effective and safe procedure for managing recurrent HE with large portosystemic shunts.

Abstract: Seventeen eyes of thirteen patients with Mooren′s ulcer were treated with a combination therapy of local and systemic steroids, conjunctival resection, superficial keratectomy and application of cyanoacrylate tissue adhesive. The pathology was classified as acute, subacute and chronic. Ulcers were graded based on the extent of corneal thinning, degree and extent of ulceration, and amount of inflammation. Fourteen eyes (82.4%) healed completely with formation of a vascularised scars, while three eyes (17.6%) failed to respond to treatment and either went into phthisis bulbi or healed with gross tissue distortion. Our study suggests an early intervention of this therapy with cyanoacrylate tissue adhesive application for effective control of Mooren′s ulceration.
