To Study the Outcome of Cyanoacrylate Glue in Different Corneal Pathologies
Abstract: The cyanoacrylates were first synthesized in 1949 by H. Coover. The main advantage of synthetic tissue adhesives is cheap and simple production process, which gives possibility of using the cyanoacrylates in many surgical disciplines of medicine. That makes also synthetic tissue adhesives better than biological tissue glue (for example fibrin- based adhesives) which preparation is much more complicated and expensive. Nowadays the cyanoacrylates are often used in ophthalmology, mostly in treatment diseases of the anterior segment--for example corneal thinning, ulceration and perforation of cornea. In this paper possible uses of cyanoacrylate tissue adhesives in ophthalmology are presented. The method of application of the cyanoacrylates on the surface of damaged cornea is presented. On base of analysis provided in many clinical centres, the advantages, disadvantages and clinical effects of using tissue adhesives are discussed in this paper.
