12602. Prospective randomized blind controlled trial comparing sutures, tape, and octylcyanoacrylate tissue adhesive for skin closure after phlebectomy. (Abstract)

Prospective randomized blind controlled trial comparing sutures, tape, and octylcyanoacrylate tissue adhesive for skin closure after phlebectomy. The patient's view of the outcome after phlebectomy is mainly dependent on the cosmetic result.To compare 5-0 monofilament sutures with tapes and tissue adhesive for wound closure after varicose vein surgery.Seventy-nine patients undergoing varicose vein surgery were prospectively randomized in three groups (tissue adhesive, sutures, tape) for skin (...) closure and compared. The follow-up 1 year postoperatively was done by a senior dermatologist who was blinded in the method of skin closure.The cosmetic outcome showed little advantage for the suture group. Taping the incisions is faster than suturing them but without significance; closure with tissue adhesive takes nearly the double of time. The closure for one incision with tissue adhesive is 40 times more expensive than with tapes and 14 times more expensive than with sutures.This study failed

12603. A prospective comparison of octyl cyanoacrylate tissue adhesive (dermabond) and suture for the closure of excisional wounds in children and adolescents. (Abstract)

A prospective comparison of octyl cyanoacrylate tissue adhesive (dermabond) and suture for the closure of excisional wounds in children and adolescents. Recent studies suggest that the use of octyl cyanoacrylate tissue adhesive for closure of both traumatic lacerations and incisional surgical wounds results in a cosmetic outcome comparable to that achieved with conventional sutures. To date, no studies have looked at the use of tissue adhesive for higher-tension wounds, such as those created (...) during cutaneous excisional procedures.To compare the tissue adhesive octyl cyanoacrylate with standard suture for the closure of excisional wounds in children and adolescents.A prospective comparison with blinded assessment of cosmetic outcome. Twenty-eight wounds were closed with monofilament suture and 24 were closed with tissue adhesive. At approximately 2 months, photographs of the incisions were evaluated by 2 dermatologists blinded to the method of skin closure.Forty-two consecutive patients

12604. A single blind, prospective, randomized trial comparing n-butyl 2-cyanoacrylate tissue adhesive (Indermil) and sutures for skin closure in hand surgery. (Abstract)

A single blind, prospective, randomized trial comparing n-butyl 2-cyanoacrylate tissue adhesive (Indermil) and sutures for skin closure in hand surgery. Fifty patients underwent a variety of hand operations and were randomized for wound closure either with tissue adhesive (Indermil) or sutures. The two treatment groups had similar demographic characteristics and similar outcomes at the 2 and 6 week postoperative assessments which were performed by a designated tissue viability nurse blinded (...) to the method of closure. Five minor wound dehiscences occurred: three in the adhesive group and two in the suture group. No infection occurred in either group. In conclusion, the study demonstrates tissue adhesive is as effective as suture in this type of hand surgery.Copyright 2001 The British Society for Surgery of the Hand.

12608. Tissue adhesion to bioactive glass-coated silicone tubing in a rat model of peritoneal dialysis catheters and catheter tunnels. Full Text available with Trip Pro

Tissue adhesion to bioactive glass-coated silicone tubing in a rat model of peritoneal dialysis catheters and catheter tunnels. Silicone peritoneal dialysis catheters do not develop tissue ingrowth, lack a mechanical barrier to periluminal bacterial migration and need cuffs for anchorage. We hypothesized that a bioactive glass coating composed of silicon, calcium, sodium and phosphorous oxides would cause a beneficial tissue reaction causing catheter adhesion, and tested this in a rat model.A (...) , bioactive glass coatings can improve the tissue retention of silicone tubing by promoting adhesion by collagen and cell proliferation, and are promising for future studies of peritoneal dialysis catheters.

12613. Integral role of RhoA activation in monocyte adhesion-triggered tissue factor expression in endothelial cells. Full Text available with Trip Pro

Integral role of RhoA activation in monocyte adhesion-triggered tissue factor expression in endothelial cells. The role of Rho activation in the regulation of tissue factor (TF) is not clear. This study was undertaken to investigate this in endothelial cells induced by monocyte adhesion.Isolated human peripheral blood monocytes were added to cultured human coronary endothelial cells. Monocyte adhesion to endothelial cells increased the levels of TF antigen in the endothelial cells. The results (...) of transient transfection of the human TF promoter/luciferase gene into endothelial cells indicated that the increase in endothelial expression of the TF gene caused by monocyte adhesion occurred at the transcriptional level. The upregulation of TF was inhibited by statins, and the suppressive effect of statins was reversed by geranylgeranylpyrophosphate. Monocyte adhesion rapidly upregulated the membrane translocation and GTP/GDP exchange of RhoA, but not of Cdc42 or Rac, in endothelial cells. Rho

Tests of Experimental Tissue Adhesive Sealants: Analysis of Strength Effects in Relation to Tissue Adhesive Sealant Standards The sealing efficiencies (SE% = surfaces sealed/surfaces tested) of 2 experimental tissue adhesive sealants (TASs), L.C. TAS and glutaraldehyde TAS (GA TAS), were determined by applications in 12 mixed-breed pigs (weight range, 40-60 kg) that had been anticoagulated with heparin and divided into groups of 6: Group I, L.C. TAS; and Group II, GA TAS. Leaking tissue (...) , 75% in Group I and 0 in Group II (P <0.001; 95% CI, 50%-99%). For both 1st and 2nd applications on all leaking tissue surfaces, SEs were 98% in Group I and 29% in Group II (P <0.001; 95% CI, 37%-99%). These results are consistent with the hypothesis that a TAS with higher cohesive and adhesive strengths, such as L.C. TAS (cohesive strength, >6.5 kg/cm(2); adhesive strength, >1.5 kg/cm(2)), will have higher SEs for leaking tissue surfaces than will a TAS with lower cohesive and adhesive strength

12619. Is the intercellular adhesion molecule-1/leukocyte function associated antigen 1 pathway of leukocyte adhesion involved in the tissue damage of alcoholic hepatitis? Full Text available with Trip Pro

Is the intercellular adhesion molecule-1/leukocyte function associated antigen 1 pathway of leukocyte adhesion involved in the tissue damage of alcoholic hepatitis? Alcoholic hepatitis is characterised histologically by an intense inflammatory cell infiltrate made up predominantly of neutrophils but including other cell types, particularly lymphocytes. Leukocyte cytotoxicity requires cell adhesion, which is mediated via receptors on the leukocyte surface including leukocyte function associated (...) antigen-1 (LFA-1) which binds to the ligand intercellular adhesion molecule-1 (ICAM-1) on the target cell. The distribution of ICAM-1 and LFA-1 expression in liver biopsy specimens from patients with alcoholic liver disease was examined to ascertain whether this pathway of leukocyte adhesion is involved in the tissue damage of alcoholic hepatitis. Specimens were stained for ICAM-1 and LFA-1 by a three step immunoalkaline-phosphatase method using monoclonal antibodies against ICAM-1 and LFA-1. LFA-1
