Abstract

Left colonic anastomosis with n-butyl-2-cyanoacrylate in rats does not improve the healing process; on the contrary, it has a negative influence during the first week. As a consequence, the routine use of n-butyl-2-cyanoacrylate in colonic anastomosis in the clinical situation does not appear to be justifiable.
