Abstract

Abstract An n-butyl ester of cyanoacrylate monomer which polymerizes in 10 seconds when in contact with OH ions has been used for fixing skin grafts. It can be used for gluing graft to skin, or graft to graft. It is easy and rapid to apply, both in the theatre and on the ward, and has caused no side effects in 18 burn cases. It gives a stronger join than suturing in thin skin grafts.
