We present a case of recurrent upper gastrointestinal (GI) bleeding in a man aged 57 years with primary biliary cholangitis who was ultimately diagnosed with an isolated duodenal variceal bleed, which was successfully treated with histoacryl glue injection. Duodenal varices are an uncommon presentation of portal hypertension and can result in significant GI bleeding with a high mortality. Diagnosis can be difficult and therapeutic options limited. Endoscopic variceal sclerotherapy with histoacryl glue provides an effective treatment, though endoscopists need to remain aware of and vigilant for the serious complications of this treatment option...

BACKGROUND: Pain is the most likely reason for delay in resuming normal activities after groin hernia repair. The primary aim of this study was to determine whether the use of glue to fix the mesh instead of sutures reduced acute postoperative pain after inguinal hernia repair. Secondary objectives were to compare postoperative complications, chronic pain and early recurrence rates during 1-year follow-up. METHODS: Some 370 patients who underwent Lichtenstein hernia repair were randomized to receive either glue (Histoacryl®) or non-absorbable polypropylene sutures for fixation of lightweight polypropylene mesh...

Vascular embolization is a minimally invasive treatment used for the management of vascular malformations and tumors. It is carried out under X-ray by navigating a microcatheter into the targeted blood vessel, through which embolic agents are delivered to occlude the vessels. Cyanoacrylate liquid glues have been widely used for vascular embolization owing to their low viscosity, rapid polymerization/solidification rate, good penetration ability and low tissue toxicity. The objective of this study is to quantitatively investigate the physical properties of two n-butyl cyanoacrylate (nBCA) glues (Glubran 2 and Histoacryl) mixed with an iodized oil (Lipiodol) at various concentrations...

OBJECTIVES: Nail bed injuries are common in children, with nail bed damage accounting for 15% to 24% of fingertip injuries. Our objective was to see whether medical adhesives, the cyanoacrylates including Histoacryl and Dermabond, could be used to fix nail bed lacerations as opposed to doing a primary repair with sutures, thus potentially being a quicker method for repair in the emergency department for these injuries. METHODS: We conducted a literature review using the search engines MEDLINE, PubMed, Web of Science, and Google Scholar, and the references within these articles were also integrated...

Histoacryl glue is used increasingly for the treatment of gastric and ectopic varices, and there is experience in its use for oesophageal varices. It is an effective treatment, yet numerous reports of complications have accumulated. This review of the literature describes the technique, explores circulatory and vascular consideration unique to portal hypertension and categorises the complications into: "Embolisation", "local venous thrombosis", "fistulisation and extravascular injection", "ulceration, erosion and extrusion", and "nidus of infection"...

INTRODUCTION: Embolisation has long been used as an adjunct to surgical resection in the treatment of brain arteriovenous malformation (bAVM). The most commonly used embolic material, n-butylcyanoacrylate glue, requires experience and skill to handle its quick and unpredictable flow and polymerisation. A new liquid embolic agent, ethylene vinyl alcohol copolymer (Onyx), is less adhesive and polymerises slowly, which provides better control for radiologists performing embolisation. OBJECTIVE: To report our experience in embolisation using Onyx alone or in combination with histoacryl for bAVM embolisation in our tertiary referral centre...

PURPOSE: The goal of this study was to assess the distal dispersion, the adhesion strength to catheter, the vascular toxicity and the ability in excluding embolized vessels using Purefill(®) (α-hexil-cyanoacrylate) as embolic material, which is a new high purity cyanoacrylate and compare these results with those obtained with N-butyl-2-cyanoacrylate (Histoacryl(®)) and a mixture of N-butyl-2-cyanoacrylate and methacryloxysulfolane. MATERIAL AND METHODS: In six pigs, the right rete mirabile (RM) and right renal arteries were embolized with α-hexil-cyanoacrylate, and the left rete mirabile and left renal artery were embolized with N-butyl-2-cyanoacrylate and N-butyl-2-cyanoacrylate+Methacryloxysulfolane for comparison...

BACKGROUND: Tissue adhesives (TAs) in gastrointestinal surgery are gradually gaining acceptance. Before implementation as colonic sealants, an evaluation of the sealing capability of a TA when in contact with fecal matter, as in a leaking anastomosis, is needed. In this study, we used clinically available TAs for the sutureless closure of colonic defects evaluating mechanical strength and tissue healing. METHODS: A total of 160 rats were divided into 8 groups. Two ...

OBJECT: Hemangiobastomas (HB) are rare lesions accounting for 1 to 5% of all spinal cord tumors. Due to their hypervascular nature, an angiography may be proposed preoperatively in order to identify tumoral vascular anatomy. Preoperative embolization may be indicated to reduce intraoperative bleeding, thus facilitating tumor resection and minimizing surgical risk. The aim of this paper is to report our experience of preoperative embolization in intramedullary hemangioblastomas. METHODS: We performed a retrospective analysis of all patients operated on for intramedullary hemangioblastomas between 1995 and 2014 who had undergone embolization before surgery...

Acute gastrointestinal bleeding is a common major emergency (Internal medical or gastroenterological or medical), approximately 85 % of which occur in the upper GI tract. It is estimated that about a half of upper GI bleeds are caused by peptic ulcers. Upper GI bleeds are associated with more severe bleeding and poorer outcomes when compared to middle or lower GI bleeds. Prognostic determinants include bleeding intensity, patient age, comorbid conditions and the concomitant use of anticoagulants. A focused medical history can offer insight into the bleeding intensity, location and potential cause (along with early risk stratification)...

Background Clinical effectiveness and safety of biological and synthetic adhesives in digestive closures have been evaluated. Their use is becoming more prevalent, as rigidity and inflexibility are its more remarkable weaknesses. However, little is known about their role in gastric and anastomotic closures. Moreover, usefulness of novel flexible types of synthetic adhesives as n-butyl-cyanoacrylate has not been assessed yet. Materials and Methods One centimeter long gastrotomy was performed in 24 male Wistar rats, which were divided depending on the type of closure method employed: manual USP 5/0 silk interrupted suture versus sutureless closure with Histoacryl Flexible (n-butyl-cyanoacrylate with softener) or Histoacryl Double Component (n-butyl-cyanoacrylate with softener and hardener)...

Central venous catheterization is a common diagnostic and therapeutic procedure in modern clinical practice. Pseudoaneurysms of the subclavian artery are rare and usually occur immediately after the causative event, whether the cause was trauma or a medical procedure. Here, we report a case of a 71-year-old woman with delayed presentation of catheter-related subclavian pseudoaneurysm. The patient's symptoms began two weeks after the initial catheterization, probably because of slow leakage of blood from the injured subclavian artery caused by incomplete compression of the puncture site and uremic coagulopathy...

OBJECTIVE: Acardiac twin occurs in 1:35,000 pregnancies. Several techniques have been described to treat this condition. Some techniques have been suggested as golden standard; however, new are still being tried. CASE REPORT: This is a case of a 32-year-old patient who had successful ablation of the acardiac twin with Histoacryl. The diagnosis of the acardiac twin was made in the 11 weeks + 3 weeks of pregnancy. Due to the development of myocardial hypertrophy and pericardial transudate of the pumping fetus, we had performed ablation of the acardiac twin with Histoacryl in the 21 weeks' +5 weeks' gestation...

BACKGROUND: Tissue adhesives may be useful for sealing bowel anastomoses by preventing anastomotic leakage. Prior to clinical implementation, an in-depth analysis of the clinical and immunohistopathological effects of tissue adhesives on the target tissue and of the mechanical strength of the adhesive bond in an in vivo model is needed. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In 84 rats, two bowel segments were glued using one of the following tissue adhesive: Bioglue, Gelatin-resorcinol-formaldehyde (GRF), Glubran 2, Histoacryl Flex, Omnex, Duraseal Xact, or Tissucol...
