Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A spray gun to deliver methyl cyanoacrylate adhesive to tissue surfaces is described. The gun delivers a fine spray resulting in a solid and uniform film of polymerized adhesive on the tissue surface. It is proposed that the gun will allow coverage of a given surface area with a minimal amount of adhesive, thereby decreasing the adverse histotoxic effects of the methyl cyanoacrylate. Some experimental uses include liver hemostasis, the sealing of pleural air leaks, and the sealing of pancreatic wounds.
