Novel Surgical Sealant Could Make Sutures Obsolete

A new surgical glue is based on a proprietary polymer that demonstrates superior biocompatibility, tunable bioresorbability and adjustable tissue adherence.logo_gecko_10emeretourv2

The Gecko Biomedical (Paris, France) SETALUM Sealant is a hydrophobic light-activated adhesive (HLAA) designed for both wet and dynamic environments as an add-on to sutures during minimally invasive vascular surgery.

Unique chemical and physical properties include high viscosity, hydrophobicity, and on demand curing. The adhesive, which is based on a mixture of easily metabolized glycerol and sebacic acid, can be brushed on a biological surface and set in seconds with a short application of ultraviolet (UV) light.
