Bacteriological Study of Cyanoacrylate Tissue Adhesives

Materials and MethodsN-butyl, isobutyl, and methyl cyanoacrylate monomers were tested because our experiments indicate that isobutyl, n-butyl, and combinations of methyl and isobutyl or n-butyl are the best monomers available for current clinical uses

Scholarcy highlights

  • SEVERAL available reports of microbiological studies of n-alkyl α-cyanoacrylate monomers suggest the possibility that methyl-2-cyanoacrylate may have bacteriostatic and bacteriocidal action by which it is self-sterilizing in vitro
  • If the monomer kills or inhibits growth of even vegetative forms of bacteria, this property may be advantageous in selecting this monomer for certain uses
  • This article describes the effects of n-butyl, isobutyl, and methyl-2-cyanoacrylate monomers upon the growth of various microorganisms in vitro and in vivo
  • Materials and MethodsN-butyl, isobutyl, and methyl cyanoacrylate monomers were tested because our experiments indicate that isobutyl, n-butyl, and combinations of methyl and isobutyl or n-butyl are the best monomers available for current clinical uses
