A novel experimental technique to treat vein problems with GLUE - Min and Raabe
Tuesday, November 27, 2012

 

A novel glue application in medicine for venous disease has been used in an animal model.

 

Cyanoacrylate was used as the glue adhesive in this animal model.

 

The authors concluded that "intravascular injection of cyanoacrylate is feasible for closure of superficial veins in animal models. These findings warrant further animal studies of this proprietary cyanoacrylate to assess efficacy, safety and its effects on perivenous structures".

 

The study was published in the January 2012 issue of Phlebology (volume 19, E publication).
