    Abstract: Objectives: The combination of fibrin sealant and bioabsorbable sheet is known to provide a better sealing effect on alveolar air leakage compared to the single use of fibrin sealant. However, there is little evidence that reveals the optimum techniques for their combined application....

    Fibrin sealant (fibrin adhesive; fibrin glue; Beriplast P) is a haemostatic and wound support product consisting of the blood coagulation factors fibrinogen, factor XIII and thrombin, the antifibrinolytic agent aprotinin and calcium chloride. Fibrin sealant has been used to good effect in a wide...

    Abstract: Objective: There is little experimental evidence to show how much positive airway pressure fibrin sealants can actually withstand, and in particular, how this effect changes over time. In the present study, we experimentally evaluated the sealing effect of fibrin glue against alveolar...
