Use of tissue adhesives versus sutures on minor surgery for incision closure: randomized controlled trial

  title={Use of tissue adhesives versus sutures on minor surgery for incision closure: randomized controlled trial},
  author={D. S. Oliveira},
Sutures, staples and adhesive tapes have been used for many years as methods of wound closure, but tissue adhesives have entered clinical practice more recently Closure of wounds with sutures enables the closure to be meticulous, but the sutures may show tissue reactivity and can require removal. Tissue adhesives offer the advantages of an absence of risk of needlestick injury and no requirement to remove sutures later. Initially, tissue adhesives were used primarily in emergency room settings… Expand


Tissue adhesives for closure of surgical incisions.
There was low quality evidence that sutures were significantly better than tissue adhesives for reducing the risk of wound breakdown, but there was evidence in favour of using tape for surgeons' assessment of cosmetic appearance, patient satisfaction or surgeon satisfaction. Expand
Use of skin glue versus traditional wound closure methods in brain surgery: A prospective, randomized, controlled study
The study suggests that the new NCA tissue adhesive is a safe, effective and reliable skin closure for neurosurgical procedures in the supratentorial region; it also achieves optimal cosmetic results, is less time consuming to use and has greater patient satisfaction. Expand

Suture choice and surgical and stitching techniques may be guided by the TAFT concept of wound closure that recognizes the main function of suture and closure devices: Tension relief; Apposition enhancement; and surface Finishing Touches. Expand
Meta-analysis of skin adhesives versus sutures in closure of laparoscopic port-site wounds
There is insufficient evidence that port-site wound closure technique by tissue adhesives is superior to traditional suture closure technique in terms of wound infection, wound dehiscence, and patient satisfaction, and a multicentre randomized controlled trial is required in order to obtain stronger evidence.

A Comparison of a New Skin Closure Device and Intradermal Sutures in the Closure of Full-Thickness Surgical Incisions
The Prineo Skin Closure System can be considered equivalent to intradermal sutures for full-thickness surgical incisions with regard to safety and effectiveness and the ease and speed of application contribute to shortened operative times. Expand
Tissue adhesives for traumatic lacerations in children and adults.
Tissue adhesives are an acceptable alternative to standard wound closure for repairing simple traumatic lacerations in children and adults and there is no significant difference in cosmetic outcome between tissue adhesive andstandard wound closure, or between different tissueAdhesives. Expand
A prospective, randomized, controlled clinical trial of tissue adhesive (2-octylcyanoacrylate) versus standard wound closure in breast surgery.
OCA is effective and reliable in skin closure for breast surgery, yielding similar cosmetic results to standard suture, and OCA is faster than standard wound closure and offers several practical advantages over suture repair for patients. Expand
Octyl-2-cyanoacrylate adhesive for skin closure: eight years experience.
Octyl-2-cyanoacrylate is a valuable aid for ensuring the success of surgery by reducing surgical site infections by guaranteeing a major superficial protection without relevant contraindications and with evident saving of time and resources. Expand
LiquiBand® Surgical S topical adhesive versus sutures for the closure of laparoscopic wounds. A randomized controlled trial
LiquiBand® Surgical S is as good as sutures for the closure of laparoscopic wounds in terms of cosmesis and complications with the added benefit of being significantly faster, and closing with LBSS was significantly faster. Expand
Patient outcomes associated with 2-octyl cyanoacrylate topical skin adhesive in coronary artery bypass graft surgery.
The SSI rate for patients who had sutures and 2-octyl cyanoacrylate used as the final layer of site closure was significantly lower than the rates for patients having other types of closure, consistent with the rates observed in the literature. Expand
