In August 1998, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved the use of a cyanoacrylate adhesive for surgical and trauma wounds . Surg. Journal of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Vol. 22, 526-535. Cyanoacrylate adhesives become hard in the presence of fluids such as blood or saliva (Figure 1 ), with good biodegradability and hemostatic and bacteriostatic properties [ 1. It was identified that the cyanoacrylate adhesive caused less inflammation and induced a higher mineralized tissue volume than the screw. A.

Cyanoacrylate adhesives become hard in the presence of fluids such as blood or saliva (Figure 1), with good biodegradability and hemostatic and bacteriostatic properties [1, 3, 9, 22, 32]. Such a device has been developed and preliminary toxicity testing completed on a compounded cyanoacrylate (Neucrylate), and its properties have been modified so it may be used as an intravascular embolic agent. In addition, cellular structures in both specimens were normal in all aspects.  reported the use of cyanoacrylate in periodontal pockets during surgical procedures involving periodontal flaps in 24 individuals, Ozcan et al. Cyanoacrylate adhesives have been used in medicine and dentistry with some controversial opinions. 12, p. 1405. Wound closure in a moist environment during an apical surgery with an adhesive composed of n-butyl-cyanoacrylate and octyl cyanoacrylate. Chemical structure of ethyl cyanoacrylate, the precursor to many commercial adhesives.  performed a randomized clinical trial comparing sutures with an octyl cyanoacrylate adhesive for wound closure in the maxillofacial region of 29 patients. The aim of this review was to summarize the relevant literature regarding the use of cyanoacrylate adhesives for oral wounds during dental and surgical procedures, with focus on the applications, indications, advantages, and disadvantages. Octyl-2-cyanoacrylate (Dermabond; Ethicon, Somerville, NJ) is a synthetic tissue adhesive recently approved for skin closure. The literature reports the widespread use of cyanoacrylate adhesives during procedures performed in various fields of medicine, including gynecology, gastroenterology, neurosurgery, orthopedics, plastic surgery, dermatology, urology, and vascular and cardiac surgery . At all time points, the cyanoacrylate group showed significantly lesser graft contraction than did the other groups, with the least working time, no bleeding complications, and lesser pain in the first week after surgery. Sixty-four patients with unilateral, bilateral, or midline cleft lip defects were repaired. Kulkarni et al. Cyanoacrylate tissue glue has been widely used in different surgical applications. B. D. S., Robazza C. R. C., Pereira A. Copyright © 2019 Eduardo Borie et al. The aim of this review was to summarize the relevant â¦ Cyanoacrylates are available in several different forms based on the length and complexity of their chains; these include methyl, ethyl, n-butyl, isoamyl, isohexyl, and octyl cyanoacrylates . Biochemical and histopathological findings of N-Butyl-2Cyanoacrylate in oral surgery: an experimental study In this regard, cyanoacrylate adhesives seem to be a good option for use in medicine as well as dentistry . This dental adhesive is designed to perform specifically in the oral cavity. It is easy to apply and can save considerable time and effort. Several advantages were observed: shorter operative time, formation of a protective barrier, simplified incision care, no need for suture removal, and improved scar outcome. Br J Oral Maxillofac Surg. Cyanoacrylate (CA) and its homologues have a variety of medical and commercial applications as biological adhesives and sealants. There were no differences in the healing and complication rates between the two groups. The authors declare that they have no conflicts of interest regarding the publication of this paper. We report our experience using cyanoacrylate tissue glue in the head and neck region in 165 patients. Isoamyl-2-cyanoacrylate was used for wound closure. Inal S., Yilmaz N., Nisbet C., Güvenç T. Biochemical and histopathological findings of N-Butyl-2-Cyanoacrylate in oral surgery: an experimental study. Brazilian Oral Research. | A randomized clinical trial  performed in 36 patients, in which the n-butyl/n-octyl cyanoacrylate adhesives were compared with 6-0 polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) sutures in terms of patient-centered outcomes, showed only statistical differences in the time required, while no differences were identified regarding the discomfort, analgesic intake, pain level, and the modified early-wound healing index. They identified an agreement between clinical and histological parameters and noted that hemostasis was faster and the procedural duration was shorter with butyl cyanoacrylate than with sutures. Hemostatic effect of n-butyl-2-cyanoacrylate (histoacryl) glue in warfarin-treated patients undergoing oral surgery. Not many disadvantages of cyanoacrylate adhesives have been discussed in the literature, although the high cost of octyl and isoamyl compounds  and reduced tensile strength  have been reported. J Oral Maxillofac Surg. For up to 14 days, sensitivity and erythema were significantly lesser with the cyanoacrylate than with sutures, whereas there were no differences at 21 days. Some authors have reported concerns about ethyl cyanoacrylate [8, 48, 49] causing skin toxicity, necrosis, and allergic dermatitis. Cyanoacrylates are a family of strong fast-acting adhesives with industrial, medical, and household uses. GÃ¼mÃ¼s and Buduneli  reported less shrinkage of free gingival grafts when they used a cyanoacrylate adhesive, identifying lesser dimensional changes, clinical time, and pain at the recipient site with cyanoacrylate than with microsurgical (suture: 7.0, magnifying) and conventional (suture: 5.0) techniques.  performed clinical and microscopic assessments of mucosal wounds closed with sutures or a butyl cyanoacrylate adhesive in 15 patients who underwent root resection in the anterior teeth.  reported the use of a cyanoacrylate adhesive in more than 100 patients who underwent exodontia or apical/periodontal surgeries, with no adverse effect in any case. Biomaterials. They placed an incision on both sides of the labial frenum and closed one with sutures and the other with the cyanoacrylate adhesive. It is easy to apply and can save considerable time and effort. Because cyanoacrylate adhesives do not require any needles for application, they eliminate the risk of puncture accidents for both clinicians and auxiliary personnel [32, 40, 41]. OBJECTIVES : The present study was undertaken to compare the efficacy of N Butyl 2 cyanoacrylate and vicryl suture in intra oral wound closure. In the field of esthetic surgery, cyanoacrylate adhesives have been used for wound closure and in skin grafting procedures, blepharoplasty, face and brow lifts, and other cosmetic surgeries . However, some researchers have reported that ethyl cyanoacrylate is a safe and inexpensive adhesive that aids in joining of wound edges, results in an acceptable inflammatory response with decreased polymorphonuclear infiltration and an esthetically acceptable scar, and does not cause necrosis or allergic reactions [8, 11, 20, 45]. Many patients undergoing oral surgery are taking oral anticoagulant therapy (OAT), of which the most common is warfarin. Follow-up ranged from 6 months to 3 years. These authors stated that an increase in the number of lateral chains in the cyanoacrylate molecule decreases the degree of cytotoxicity, increases the healing time, and reduces its adhesiveness.
