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.

Host tissue response by the expression of collagen to cyanoacrylate adhesives used in implant fixation for abdominal hernia repair.

J Mater Sci Mater Med 2017 Apr 16;28(4):58. Epub 2017 Feb 16.

Networking Biomedical Research Centre on Bioengineering, Biomaterials and Nanomedicine (CIBER-BBN), Madrid, Spain.

The less traumatic use of surgical adhesives rather than sutures for mesh fixation in hernia repair has started to gain popularity because they induce less host tissue damage and provoke less postoperative pain. This study examines the host tissue response to a new cyanoacrylate (CA) adhesive (n-octyl, OCA). Partial defects (3 × 5 cm) created in the rabbit anterior abdominal wall were repaired by mesh fixation using OCA, Glubran2(n-butyl-CA), Ifabond(n-hexyl-CA) or sutures. Read More

Diffuse cutaneous allergic reaction to Dermabond.

Prehosp Disaster Med 2014 Oct 16;29(5):546-8. Epub 2014 Sep 16.

3Department of Radiology,Brigham and Women's Hospital,Harvard Medical School,Boston,MassachusettsUSA.

Wound closure with 2-octyl cyanoacrylate (Dermabond; Ethicon, Somerville, New Jersey USA) has recently increased in popularity across a wide spectrum of physicians ranging from surgeons to emergency medicine practitioners. Generally, very few complications are associated with Dermabond and are usually related to application techniques. Uncommonly, patients present with allergic reactions to the adhesive compounds; these allergies are often misdiagnosed as cellulitis or another infectious process, and are incorrectly treated.

A prospective randomized controlled trial comparing N-butyl-2 cyanoacrylate (Histoacryl), octyl cyanoacrylate (Dermabond), and subcuticular suture for closure of surgical incisions.

Ann Plast Surg 2015 Jan;74(1):107-10

From the *Mayo Clinic Florida Department of General Surgery, and †Division of Plastic Surgery, Mayo Clinic Florida, Jacksonville, FL.

Introduction: The use of tissue adhesives for the closure of surgical incisions is increasing. Few studies directly compare tissue adhesives to one another or focus on the difference in wound closure time between tissue adhesives. We compared the use of N-butyl-2 cyanoacrylate (Histoacryl), octyl cyanoacrylate (Dermabond), or subcuticular suture in incisions resulting from reduction mammoplasty, mastopexy, panniculectomy, and abdominoplasty.

Airflow-directed in situ electrospinning of a medical glue of cyanoacrylate for rapid hemostasis in liver resection.

Nanoscale 2014 Jul;6(14):7792-8

Institute & Hospital of Hepatobiliary Surgery, Key Laboratory of Digital Hepatobiliary Surgery of Chinese PLA, Chinese PLA Medical Academy, Chinese PLA General Hospital, Beijing 100853, P. R. China.

Rapid hemostasis of solitary organs is still a big challenge in surgical procedures or after major trauma in both civilians and on the battlefield. Here, we report the first use of an airflow-directed in situ electrospinning method to precisely and homogeneously deposit a medical glue of n-octyl-2-cyanoacrylate (OCA) ultrathin fibers onto a wound surface to realize rapid hemostasis in dozens of seconds. In vivo and in vitro experiments on pig liver resection demonstrate that the self-assembled electrospun OCA membrane with high strength, good flexibility and integrity is very compact and no fluid seeping is observed even under a pressure of 147 mm Hg.

A prospective randomized comparison of two skin closure techniques in acetabular fracture surgery.

J Orthop Traumatol 2014 Sep 31;15(3):189-94. Epub 2013 Dec 31.

Metropolitian Orthopedics, Missouri Baptist Medical Center, 3009 Ballas Road, Suite 105 B, St. Louis, MO, 63131, USA.

Background: Recent publications have shown an infection rate of 5-7 % for acetabular fractures treated with the Kocher-Langenbeck (K-L) approach. Using metallic staples to close hip skin incisions has been considered the gold standard. The purpose of this study was to answer the following: (1) will closure of a K-L incision after acetabular fracture surgery with a running subcuticular monocryl suture, then sealing the wound with 2-octyl cyanoacrylate (OCA), result in a lower infection rate compared to metallic staple closure? (2) Do incisions closed with subcuticular monocryl and OCA exhibit decreased drainage? (3) Is there a cost difference between these two methods?

Materials And Methods: In a prospective clinical study, 103 patients with acetabular fractures treated using the K-L approach were randomized into two groups: skin closure with metallic staples (n = 52) versus subcuticular running monocryl suture sealed with OCA (n = 51). Read More

The use of an acellular dermal matrix "sandwich" for the successful treatment of a persistent cranial cerebrospinal fluid fistula.

J Craniofac Surg 2013 Jul;24(4):1314-6

Department of Plastic Surgery, University of Virginia Health System, Charlottesville, VA 22908, USA.

Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) fistulae are problematic because of the high risk of meningitis and other infectious complications, as well as the potential for critically delaying chemotherapy in cases associated with malignancy. The plastic surgical literature suggests vascularized autologous tissue for the treatment of chronically draining CSF fistulae. Many of these patients, however, are debilitated, have multiple comorbidities, and may have a limited life expectancy, making the lengthy surgery and the associated donor-site morbidity of a regional or free tissue transfer procedure unattractive.
