Primary cutaneous aspergillosis is a rare but potentially life-threatening disease. We present the case of a premature infant who developed primary cutaneous aspergillosis with Aspergillus niger at the site of a skin abrasion that had been treated with a purple-colored cyanoacrylate product. The infection was treated successfully with gentle debridement of the cyanoacrylate product, followed by intravenous voriconazole and topical fluconazole. To our knowledge, this is the first reported case of primary cutaneous aspergillosis occurring at the site of cyanoacrylate-based skin adhesive...

BACKGROUND: Chronic pain after inguinal hernioplasty is the foremost side-effect up to 10-30% of patients. Mesh fixation may influence on the incidence of chronic pain after open anterior mesh repairs. METHODS: Some 625 patients who underwent open anterior mesh repairs were randomized to receive one of the three meshes and fixations: cyanoacrylate glue with low-weight polypropylene mesh (n = 216), non-absorbable sutures with partially absorbable mesh (n = 207) or self-gripping polyesther mesh (n = 202)...

Krazy Glue® or cyanoacrylate glue is an acrylic resin that polymerizes in less than a minute when in contact with moisture or water. We present a case of a one month old referred to our tertiary pediatric otolaryngology clinic from an outside emergency department with a history of application of cyanoacrylate glue in the external ear canals. This report presents the management of this case along with the medical and legal outcomes surrounding this case of child abuse.

The deposition of insoluble protein aggregates in the brain is a hallmark of many neurodegenerative diseases. While their exact role in neurodegeneration remains unclear, the presence of these amyloid deposits often precedes clinical symptoms. As a result, recent progress in imaging methods that utilize amyloid-specific small molecule probes have become a promising avenue for antemortem disease diagnosis. Here, we present a series of amino-aryl cyanoacrylate (AACA) fluorophores that show a turn-on fluorescence signal upon binding to amyloids in solution and in tissue...

OBJECTIVE: To describe the role of Duplex-Ultrasound Imaging (DUI) in prompt diagnosis of pseudoaneurysm (PSA) of a branch of the segmental renal artery (b-SRA) and evaluate outcomes of DUI directed percutaneous embolization. METHODS: Forty-five patients were referred to us for the management of intractable renal hematuria. 20 cases (44.44%) had developed PSA after nephrolithotomy. 12 cases (12.66%) had developed PSA after guided renal biopsies. 6 cases (13.33%) had developed PSA following road side trauma...

OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to compare the effects of a hemostatic collagen sponge and a collagen sponge sealed with a bio-adhesive material on the palatal donor sites with the purpose of minimizing postoperative pain after epithelialized gingival graft (EGG) harvesting. MATERIAL AND METHODS: The present study consisted of 44 EGGs harvested in 44 patients. In the control group, a hemostatic collagen sponge was applied over the palatal wound, while the test group was treated with additional cyanoacrylate...

PURPOSE: To report a rare case of spontaneous corneal perforation after hydrops in keratoconus patients who suffer from familial Mediterranean fever and was treated systemically with Colchicine. METHODS: Case report. RESULTS: We report a case of a 30-year-old male with keratoconus and familial Mediterranean fever treated with colchicine, presented with acute hydrops in his left eye, which progressed to a spontaneous corneal perforation. Attempts to treat the perforation with cyanoacrylate glue failed, and he underwent penetrating keratoplasty with an excellent visual outcome...

A 73-year-old woman with massive ascites associated with a giant hepatic mass accompanied by arterio-portal (AP) shunt was admitted to our hospital. Based on contrast-enhanced computed tomography (CT) and angiography findings, hepatic hemangioma with AP shunt and ascites due to portal hypertension was diagnosed. Transcatheter arterial embolization (TAE) by N-butyl-2-cyanoacrylate (NBCA) was performed without complications. The patient's ascites disappeared, and her liver function test results improved after the treatment...

PURPOSE: To evaluate long-term efficacy of translumbar embolization of type II endoleaks exclusively supplied by the lumbar arteries in patients with growing abdominal aortic aneurysm sacs using N-butyl cyanoacrylate (NBCA) instilled via percutaneous needle access. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The study included 25 patients who developed type II endoleak after endovascular aneurysm repair. Inclusion criteria for intervention were defined as sac expansion > 5 mm detected with CT angiography at 6-month follow-up or later...

Background: There are no reports analyzing imaging findings of arteries embolized with N-butyl cyanoacrylate (NBCA)-Lipiodol. To evaluate the time course of changes in the imaging findings of small arteries embolized with NBCA-Lipiodol. Materials and Methods: Selective transcatheter arterial embolization procedures via the inferior phrenic artery (right IPA, n = 25; left IPA, n = 5) were performed in 30 patients (25 males, 5 females; mean age 63 years, range: 45-78) at our institution...

PURPOSE: This study aimed to demonstrate a transcatheter embolization strategy for bronchial artery aneurysms (BAAs) using coils for the proximal lesion and glue (n-butyl-2-cyanoacrylate [NBCA]) embolization for the distal lesion with or without the use of a microballoon occlusion catheter. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Five patients with BAAs presenting with hemoptysis were enrolled in this study. A bronchial angiogram indicated a mediastinal BAA near the orifice, accompanied by dilated distal branches with or without intrapulmonary BAA...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the safety and effectiveness of n-butyl cyanoacrylate (NBCA) for portal vein embolization (PVE) when used to induce contralateral future liver remnant (FLR) hypertrophy in patients undergoing planned hepatic resection for hepatic malignancy. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The PubMed database (including articles indexed by MEDLINE) was searched for articles published from 1970 to 2018 describing patients treated with PVE utilizing NBCA to induce hypertrophy of the FLR prior to contralateral hepatic lobe resection...

A 48-year-old woman with alcoholic liver cirrhosis was admitted to our hospital because of hematochezia and severe anemia. She had been hospitalized many times over the past year for hematochezia of unknown etiology. Contrast-enhanced CT demonstrated ileal varices, which were fed by several ileal veins. These feeding veins were selectively embolized with N-butyl cyanoacrylate (NBCA) via a recanalized paraumbilical vein. The paraumbilical vein instead of the portal vein was punctured to decrease the risk of bleeding complications because she had coagulopathy and ascites...

BACKGROUND: To review published evidence regarding an n-butyl-cyanoacrylate (NBCA) injection device for great (GSV) and small (SSV) saphenous vein incompetence in terms of occlusion rate, postoperative complications and quality of life improvement. MATERIAL AND METHODS: International bibliographic databases (PubMed, EMBASE, Scopus) were searched to identify possible target articles. The only inclusion criterion was the use of the Variclose® system (Biolas, Ankara, Turkey) for superficial vein insufficiency...

Objective This study aims to present the early results of a retrospective study of the use of novel n-butyl-2-cyanoacrylate (VenaBlock)-based nontumescent endovenous ablation with a guiding light for the treatment of patients with varicose veins. Methods Patients with lower limb venous insufficiency were treated with n-butyl-2-cyanoacrylate (VenaBlock Venous Closure System) between April 2016 and July 2016. The study enrolled adults aged 21-70 years with symptomatic moderate to severe varicosities (C2-C4b) and great saphenous vein reflux lasting longer than 0...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: N-butyl-cyanoacrylate injection is recommended in bleeding/recently bled gastric varices. However, cyanoacrylate injection is associated with re-bleed in 25% to 50% of patients. Endoscopic ultrasound (EUS)-guided coil application is an emerging treatment modality for bleeding gastric varices. The aim of this study was to compare EUS-guided coil application combined with or without cyanoacrylate glue injection to injection alone in post-glue gastric variceal re-bleed...
