The Use of Fibrin Adhesive in Neurotraumatology

  • G. Kletter
Conference paper


Adhesives have been used in neurosurgery ever since they were developed. There has never before been any adhesive which is absolutely non-neurotoxic and still has good adhesive properties. These requirements are absolutely met by human fibrin, which has led to its application in many fields of neurotraumatology. The present paper deals with the main fields of use, especially frontobasal fractures, sealing of dura in the spinal canal, and vascular lesions. In addition, the use of fibrin adhesive for sealing of fibers in the region of the cauda equina is reported.
