Surgical tissue adhesives are an ancient idea, going back to the beginnings of recorded history. The concept of adhering, rather than suturing, packing, or stapling planes of tissue is attractive, in that it is fast-acting and assures complete closure. Numerous technologies have been tried; some with limited success, others outright failures. In short, the perfect adhesive does not exist. Limitations occur in a number of areas: strength, toxicity, degradation, and safety. It is also important to keep in mind that "one size fits all" does not apply to adhesives in surgical applications any more than it does in day-to-day application. As one would not use paper glue to seal a bathtub, one would presumably not apply an adhesive onto tendons, which is suitable for sealing corneas. The properties required of an adhesive for each indication are quite different. Over the last twenty-five years, advances have been made in a wide range of technologies targeting some embodiment of a practical and safe adhesive. Foremost and successful among these are cyanoacrylates, marine adhesive proteins, and fibrin-based sealants. Another promising adhesive technology is laser solders, a mixture of polypeptides and proteoglycans, which integrates with the repair site when laser energy is applied. In light of these advances in the field, the Symposium for Surgical Tissue Adhesives was organized and held at the Atlanta Hyatt from October 8-10, 1993. The goal was to bring together these far-flung technologies in a comprehensive and cohesive manner. Presentations by investigators from around the world described the history of adhesives in medicine, current technologies, laboratory characterizations, and application developments, as well as regulatory aspects and clinical applications. We felt that as many viewpoints as possible, however conflicting, were important to present in order to give the most complete picture of the state of the art of surgical adhesives.

Biomaterials for Surgical Operation offers a review of the latest advances made in developing bioabsorbable devices for surgical operations which include surgical adhesives (sealants), barriers for the prevention of tissue adhesion, polymers for fractured bone fixation, growth factors for the promotion of wound healing, and sutures. Over the years, many descriptions of biomaterials have appeared in academic journals and books, but most of them have been devoted to limited clinical areas. This is in marked contrast with this volume which covers a wide range of bioabsorbable devices used in surgery from a practical point of view. The currently applied polymeric devices are critical in surgery, but all involve serious problems due to their poor performance. For instance, fibrin glue, the most widely used surgical sealant, can produce only a weak gel with low adhesive strength to tissues, accentuating the limited effectiveness of current treatment options. Likewise, the currently available barrier membranes cannot fully prevent tissue adhesion at the acceptable level and are, moreover, not easy to handle with endoscopes due to their poor mechanical properties. Biomaterials for Surgical Operation is aimed at those who are interested in expanding their knowledge of how the problems associated with the currently used devices for surgical operation can be solved. It primarily focuses on the absorbable biomaterials which are the main components of these medical devices.

Tissue Glues in Cosmetic Surgery provides cosmetic surgeons with the comprehensive yet practical instruction they need to skillfully use tissue glues in their practices. For the cosmetic surgeon seeking to address patient requests for shorter scars and reduced morbidity, tissue glues provide a welcome solution. These new tissue glues offer surgeons and their patients decided advantages in speed and convenience, recovery, comfort, and cosmetic outcome. Furthermore, they are especially appropriate for aesthetic surgery patients. They are particularly appealing for minimally invasive or short-scar procedures, where scar length and morbidity are primary considerations. Written by the experts, this in-depth volume evaluates the different tissue adhesives available and provides the step-by-step guidance needed for using them for different applications, including brow lift, face lift, rhinoplasty, body contouring, breast surgery, and burns and craniofacial applications. An accompanying CD includes operative video clips demonstrating glue application for various procedures: Endoscopic Browlift and Midface Suspension Tissue Glue Applications in Face and Neck Lift Tissue Glue Applications in Facial Plastic Surgery The widening use of surgical adhesives makes a full understanding of their capabilities and limitations essential to the cosmetic surgeon. Tissue Glues in Cosmetic Surgery is the only volume available today to assemble and illustrate the critical information in concise, expertly written, and fully illustrated chapters.

The first edition ofTissue Adhesives in Wound Carecoincided with the approval of the first cyanoacrylate tissue adhesive approved by the Food and Drug Administration in the United States. Since the original work, other cyanoacrylate adhesives have been approved for wound closure and multiple other uses. Non-cyanoacrylate adhesives such as fibrin based adhesives as well as other synthetic and protein polymers have become more popular and deserve attention as do cements. This second edition is broader in scope and depth and includes all types of tissue adhesives, their proper indications and uses.Tissue Adhesives in Clinical Medicine, 2ewill serve as an in-depth reference on all tissue adhesives so that physicians and surgeons have a one-stop reference to learn about the various materials, their indications and how to use them properly. Most chapters follow a similar format looking at the history and development, chemistry, toxicity, clinical use, regulation, cost, effectiveness and optimal application techniques. Potential pitfalls are identified as are practical tips to achieve optimal outcomes. Figures are used to illustrate key points highlighted in the text. The FDA has contributed a chapter on the regulation of tissue adhesives to further the understanding of the availability and regulation around these products. All chapters are appropriately referenced for further investigation. The accompanying CDROM includes video files illustrating techniques.
