CHARACTERISTICS

Synthetic surgical glue Glubran 2 is a medical device Class III CE marked for internal and external use.

Glubran 2 is a synthetic biodegradable(1) cyanoacrylate basis glue, modified by the addition of a monomer synthesized by the manufacturer GEM.

Glubran 2 is ready for use(2-5). It has high adhesive(6) and haemostatic(7) properties and once it is polymerised it creates an efficient antiseptic barrier(1,8,9) against the most diffused infective or pathogenic agents during the surgical intervention.

Glubran 2 polymerises quickly in contact with live tissue and wet environment creating a thin and elastic film having high tensile properties which guarantee strong adhesion to the tissues(6). This film naturally conforms with the tissues on which it was applied; it is not permeable to liquids and is not altered by blood or organic liquids(7,10).

INDICATIONS OF USE

Glubran 2 is a glue which is used in open and laparoscopic surgery(2-5,7,8,10-64) and in digestive tract endoscopy(42,45,46,65-77).

Furthermore Glubran 2 is used as embolising agent in radiology and vascular

neuroradiology(78-97).
