    External support of vein grafts by fibrin glue possibly prevents overdistension, vascular remodeling, and neointimal hyperplasia. Previous animal models of neointimal hyperplasia showed conflicting results. Here, long-term effects of external fibrin glue support were studied in a new rat model...

    Objectives: From animal and clinical studies it is known that prevention of ‘overdistention’ of vein grafts by using extravascular support ameliorates the arterialization process in vein grafts with subsequent more favorable patency. The most ideal support is a biodegradable,...

    Abstract: Objective: Neointimal and medial thickening play a critical role in late vein graft failure following CABG. Previous ex vivo experiment suggested that perivenous application of fibrin glue may reduce the damage in the circular smooth muscle cell layer of the media of the vein graft...

    Suturing is a time consuming task in ophthalmology and suture induced irritation and redness are frequent problems. Postoperative wound infection and corneal graft rejection are examples of possible suture related complications. To prevent these complications, ophthalmic surgeons are switching...

    Background: Currently there are different strategies to increase the fusion rate in spine surgery in the presence of autologous bone graft. The use of fibrin glue has multiple applications in surgery, but there is controversy about the use of fibrin glue as a bone enhancer. Methods: The purpose...

    Background/Aim. Gunshot wounds caused by the automatic rifle M70AB2 (AK-47) 7.62 mm, after the primary surgical management, were closed with delayed primary suture during the next four to seven days. This period coincides with the fibroblastic phase of wound healing. Fibrin glue is used as a...

    Objective: The saphenous vein subjected to arterial pressure stretches to its elastic limits and constitutes intimal hyperplasia. Sheathing of the vein graft with pressure-resistant tubing might prolong vein graft patency. Methods: Twenty-one sheep received radial vein grafts or hybrid grafts...
