Conference paper


In an experimental situation with nerve grafting using rat ischiatic nerves, rat fibrin sealant was evaluated for glueing purposes. It was noted that the sealant provided a good medium for nerve sprouting, but was unable to provide sufficient fixation of the nerve ends and grafts. Sole use of fibrin sealant (Tisseel) cannot be advocated.
