The success of every intestinal surgical procedure primarily depends on correct technical execution of the intestinal sutures. Despite the continuing improvements in intestinal synthesis techniques and the introduction of mechanical staplers, the risk of anastomotic dehiscence remains a major concern. For high-risk anastomoses, defined as those performed under critical conditions, n-butyl-2-cyanoacrylate tissue adhesive allows for quick sealing of the two stumps and supports the physiological wound-healing process. Furthermore, no experimental or clinical studies have shown that this glue has any carcinogenic or mutagenic properties. Thus, we believe that n-butyl- 2-cyanoacrylate will be extremely useful for intestinal anastomoses with a high risk of dehiscence.

Abstract

The success of every intestinal surgical procedure primarily depends on correct technical execution of the intestinal sutures. Despite the continuing improvements in intestinal synthesis techniques and the introduction of mechanical staplers, the risk of anastomotic dehiscence remains a major concern. For high-risk anastomoses, defined as those performed under critical conditions, n-butyl-2-cyanoacrylate tissue adhesive allows for quick sealing of the two stumps and supports the physiological wound-healing process. Furthermore, no experimental or clinical studies have shown that this glue has any carcinogenic or mutagenic properties. Thus, we believe that n-butyl- 2-cyanoacrylate will be extremely useful for intestinal anastomoses with a high risk of dehiscence.
