In this preliminary study, the feasibility of fixing fractured bones was explored using the ethyl and isobutyl 2-cyano-acrylates, prepolymerized barnacle cement, and fibrin glue. Adequate cohesive strength cannot be obtained when lipids are present on the surface to be joined by alkyl 2-cyanoacrylates. Oxidized regenerated cellulose gauze soaked in a highly… CONTINUE READING
