It also has an in vitro antimicrobial effect when standard disc sensitivity tests are used. METHODS To determine whether contaminated wounds closed with octylcyanoacrylate tissue adhesive will have a lower infection rate compared with wounds closed with 5-0 monofilament sutures, we designed a randomized, blinded, experimental animal study.
