PURPOSE To compare the integrity of clear corneal incisions closed with fibrin (Tisseel) and n-butyl-2-cyanoacrylate (Histoacryl) tissue adhesives to those closed with conventional sutures. METHODS Four replicate experiments were performed on porcine eyes with each of the following conditions: three limbal clear corneal incision sizes (3.0 mm, 4.5 mm, and 6.0 mm), three incision closure techniques (fibrin adhesive, n-butyl-2-cyanoacrylate adhesive, and 10-0 interrupted nylon sutures)-1, 2… CONTINUE READING
