RESUMO

In the United States and Europe, the number of topical adhesives, surgical sealants, and hemostats approved for use in the surgical setting is ever expanding although no single device fills all medical and surgical needs to replace sutures. As more surgical procedures are performed through laparoscopic and robotic approaches, these devices are becoming more important, and current research is focused on solving the limitations of conventional wound treatments. This review article discusses clinical applications of various biologically derived and synthetic products that are currently available to surgeons and those that are in development.
