Skin Glue: Adhesive for Wound Closure
Surgical Glue is an alternative to classical wound care with surgical sutures and is used specifically for wound closure, for securing sutures or for other indications, such as sclerotherapy.
Wound Adhesive for Painless Wound Closure
Medical tissue adhesives are painless in their application and therefore ideal for treatment of children and adults. The adhesive is usually applied directly to the open wound from sterile plastic ampoules. Wound closure is fast - within seconds to minutes, depending on the product.
If a particularly fast wound closure is required, B.Braun's Histoacryl tissue adhesive, for example, is recommended. The adhesive consists of a monomer (n-butyl-2-cyanoacrylate) that polymerises in combination with the tissue fluid within 10 seconds. In addition, the glue forms a protective layer that protects the area from bacterial contamination.
In addition, you will find the Ethicon DERMABOND mini topical skin adhesive from Ethicon at Praxisdienst. The glue is applied directly to the skin with an ampoule and ensures secure adaptation of the wound edges. As the medical adhesive adapts to the movements of the skin, no additional wound covering is necessary. Furthermore, the wound adhesive should be applied in several layers to increase the stability and flexibility of the protective layer.
In general, it should be noted that the wound adhesive is only applied to clean and dry wounds that have stopped bleeding. This reduces the risk of infection and introduced germs interfering with the wound healing of the tissue in subsequent stages. Additionally, when treating with wound adhesives, possible contraindications such as the use of medications that influence blood clotting or known intolerances to the ingredients must be considered.
Wound Closure and Haemostasis
In case of bleeding wounds, you can find the sterile SMI Spon gelatine sponge at Praxisdienst to stop the bleeding. The sponge can be easily cut to the required size and thus offers flexibility of use. Moreover, the biological material of the gelatine sponge is absorbed by the body within a few weeks, eliminating the need for further surgery to remove the material.
