Surgical Adhesive - BioGlue, BioGlue is the leading surgical adhesive used in cardiovascular surgery around the world. Composed of purified bovine serum albumin (BSA) and glutaraldehyde, BioGlue has been used in more than 500,000 surgical procedures since its launch in 1998.
The two glue components are dispensed by a controlled delivery system comprising a double-chambered syringe, applicator tips, and optional extender applicator tips. Once dispensed, the adhesive components are mixed within the applicator tip where the cross-linking begins. The glutaraldehyde molecules bond with the BSA molecules and, upon application to the tissue proteins at the repair site, create a flexible mechanical seal independent of the body's clotting mechanism.
BioGlue begins to polymerize within 20 to 30 seconds and reaches its bonding strength within two minutes. BioGlue also adheres to synthetic graft materials through mechanical bonding within the interstices of the graft matrix.
BioGlue® Surgical Adhesive is used in a wide range of cardiac reconstruction procedures. The strength of the product assures the surgeon that delicate tissues are well reinforced and assists to control bleeding in complex surgery.
