Surgical skin adhesive bond is safe and feasible wound closure method to reduce surgical site infection following minimally invasive colorectal cancer surgery.

Ann Surg Treat Res 2020 Sep 27;99(3):146-152. Epub 2020 Aug 27.

Division of Colorectal Surgery, Department of Surgery, Seoul St. Mary's Hospital, College of Medicine, The Catholic University of Korea, Seoul, Korea.

Purpose: Minimally invasive colorectal surgery had reduced the rate of surgical site infection. The use of surgical skin adhesive bond (2-octyl cyanoacrylate) for wound closure reduces postoperative pain and provides better cosmetic effect compared to conventional sutures or staples. But role of surgical skin adhesive bond for reducing surgical site infection is unclear. Read More

Allergic Contact Dermatitis to Dermabond Prineo After Elective Orthopedic Surgery.

Orthopedics 2020 Nov 3;43(6):e515-e522. Epub 2020 Sep 3.

The Dermabond Prineo skin closure system (Ethicon, Somerville, New Jersey) is a wound closure device that combines a 2-octyl cyanoacrylate liquid adhesive and a self-adhesive polyester mesh. Although cyanoacrylates traditionally have been associated with low rates of sensitization, allergic contact dermatitis (ACD) to Dermabond products is being increasingly reported after orthopedic surgery. The authors describe the first case series of ACD to Dermabond Prineo where patch testing confirmed the diagnosis in all patients. Read More

Improving Efficiency of Hip Fracture Care by Simplifying Wound Management and Eliminating Unnecessary Clinical Follow-Up.

Iowa Orthop J 2020 ;40(1):147-151

University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics, Department of Orthopedics and Rehabilitation, Iowa City, IA.

Background: We conducted a retrospective review of geriatric hip fractures at our institution evaluating how a change in practice to 2-octyl cyanoacrylate adhesive (Dermabond®) with polyester mesh (Prineo®) and elimination of the 2-week follow-up visit impacts quality and efficiency of care after hip fracture. Our aim was to determine the impact of simplified wound closure and extended clinical follow-up on the number of outpatient calls to nurses and wound complications.

Methods: Patients included in this assessment were aged ≥65 years who underwent surgical fixation or hip replacement for proximal femur fracture during a one-year period preceding and following the implementation of Prineo® usage in wound closure (January 1 2017 to December 31, 2018). Read More

Should We Stick with Surgical Glues? The Incidence of Dermatitis after 2-Octyl Cyanoacrylate Exposure in 102 Consecutive Breast Cases.

Plast Reconstr Surg 2020 01;145(1):32-37

From the Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and the Department of Dermatology, Virginia Commonwealth University; and Eastern Virginia Medical School.

Skin adhesives have become standard in wound closure as alternatives to traditional sutures or as sterile occlusive dressings after surgery of all types. The literature is replete with case reports of contact dermatitis following exposure to cyanoacrylate-based adhesives, such as 2-octyl cyanoacrylate. Nonetheless, it has been the impression of the senior author and others that the incidence of allergic and/or contact dermatitis is much higher than commonly considered. Read More

Department of Vascular Surgery, Metropolitan Hospital, New York Medical College, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai Medical Center, New York, NY.

Surgical site infections (SSIs) are a common source of morbidity with vascular surgery incisions, especially in the groin. Single institution case series have widely varying, but high incidences of groin wound infection after open lower extremity revascularization. Optimally, a dressing that did not require changes, had low cost, and was water resistant would be optimal in these patients. Read More

Closing the Gap: Novel Abdominal Wound Closure Techniques.

Surg Technol Int 2018 06;32:25-31

Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine, Erie, Pennsylvania.

Traditionally, surgical procedures within the realm of both general and gynecological surgery employ the use of staples and interrupted sutures that run continuously with knot tying or subcuticular sutures to ensure closure of large wound incisions, subcuticular incisions, and fascial repair. However, these methods may not always be cosmetically favorable and, thus, result in an unpleasant outcome for the patient, adding to their surgery-related stress. It is, therefore, imperative that surgeons and gynecologists are aware of alternative methods of wound closure that are not only cosmetically favorable, but also ensure rapid wound recovery and infection control.
