Abstract
"Kanokonlit B", a butylic cyano-acrylate tissue adhesive, was applied to 60 patients with caesarean section to stabilise uterus sutures. Severe postsurgical infection did not occur in any of the cases. Evidence thus was produced to the high quality of the tissue adhesive, its tensile strength and its antibacterial properties to resist aerobic and anaerobic microorganisms. Direct histotoxicity was negligible. The adhesive is recommended by the authors for wider use in obstetrical and gynaecological practice.
