Conference paper


Based on the experience of more than 2000 microsurgical intracranial and spinal operations applications of fibrin glue are demonstrated. Applications with and without support material are distinguished between. Fibrin glue has proven to be useful in the preservation of venous vessels and stabilization of kinking veins and arteries as well as for fixation of implants. On the other hand, the use of fibrin glue cannot replace meticulous active hemostasis following brain operations. With regard to early reoperations economical use of fibrin glue within the subarachnoid space is recommended.
