Tissue adhesive not sutures

Germany - Rather than the time consuming procedure of suturing a wound, Epiglu simply needs adapting to size then application.


The product’s manufacturer, Meyer-Haake GmbH, reports: ‘With Epiglu fresh surgical wounds, lacerations and cuts can be closed quickly, infection-proof, atraumatically and without the need for anaesthetics.’
Wounds treated with Epiglu heal fast, without complications, with minimal scar formation and rare development of keloids, the company adds.
