Abstract: Cardiac surgery is often associated with hemostatic abnormalities leading to severe bleeding. Special problems are to be expected, if prosthetic material has to be implanted. Preclotting of Dacron prostheses with blood is well established but failures are sometimes encountered. Several years ago a new hemostatic sealing system (fibrin glue) was introduced into therapy. Since 1978 fibrin glue has been applied in 176 patients. The indications were: 1. sealing of woven Dacron prostheses, 2. bleeding from suture-h… Show more

“…Reduction of bleeding from vascular prostheses used in cardiothoracic surgery K6veker et al_ [15] used FS successfully as an adjunct to control diffuse myocardial bleeding and bleeding from suture-holes, and as a sealant of woven Dacron prostheses. They performed a controlled clinical study in 32 patients who underwent aortoventriculoplasty operations with prosthetic enlargement of the left and right ventricular outflow tracts.…”

“…Fibrin glue has been used for a long time in almost all fields of surgery. 1,2 However, application of fibrin glue cannot replace a precise surgical technique and the skill of the surgeon. Perfect, accurate surgical procedure with atraumatic management of the tissue and meticulous hemostasis avoids the necessity for the application of fibrin glue in most instances.…”

“…18 Fibrin glue, made from a combination of fibrinogen and thrombin, is safe, has few side effects, 19 -22 and is widely used in various fields including pulmonary surgery, 26,27 plastic surgery, 28 GI surgery, 29 liver surgery, 29 and cardiovascular surgery. 30,31 Scheele et al 22 used intrapleural FGI to achieve pleurodesis in patients with pneumothorax. However, the treatment often failed because the fibrin often clotted inside the drain and the air leak occlusion was attempted blindly.…”
