Injuries to the fingertip are common. The goal of treatment is restoration of a painless, functional digit with protective sensation. The amount of soft-tissue loss, the integrity of the nail bed, and the age and physical demands of the patient should be considered when selecting a treatment method. Some new products are effective for management of injuries to the fingertip. The use of 2-octylcyanoacrylate for nail bed repair is faster than suture repair, with equivalent results reported. Dermal regeneration template is effective for coverage of digital injuries with exposed tendons or bones that lack peritenon or periosteum...

2-Octylcyanoacrylate tissue adhesive (2-OCA ; Dermabond® , Ethicon, Inc., Sommerville, New Jersey) is a synthetic tissue adhesive recently used for skin closure in the treatment of minor lacerations and minor surgical incisions. We have been using this adhesive for wound closure in radical retropubic prostatectomy (RRP) since August 2006. Before that we used a skin stapler. We assessed the effectiveness of the adhesive as a sole dressing after open radical prostatectomy and compared the economic outcomes of 2-OCA and stapled repair...

UNLABELLED: A persistent gastrocutaneous fistula (pGCF) is an all-too-common complication following removal of a gastrostomy tube (GT) in a child and is associated with significant morbidity. The most common initial methods to manage pGCF include local would care and occlusion techniques. Failure of this approach is followed by surgical excision of the fistula tract and closure of the gastrostomy under general anesthesia. We report the first use of a tissue adhesive, 2-octylcyanoacrylate (2OC) (Dermabond; Ethicon, Sommerville, NJ) as a non-surgical method to close pGCF in children...
