Abstract

Although fibrin adhesion is very successfully employed in many surgical areas and especially in neurosurgery, there are still considerable problems in using it as a nerve adhesive. Special advantages were expected of this field of application in particular, namely, simplification of the operative technique but also avoidance of inconvenient suture granuloma. Hence, it is frequently employed even to date, all the more so as no comparative study has unequivocally verified the inferiority of nerve anastomosis with fibrin adhesive in relation to suture technique.
