He suggested there were several advantages of using the fibrin glue for AlloDerm fixation:
- It is easier to secure the AlloDerm graft than traditional suturing technique.
- It may decrease the likelihood of graft migration.
- The use of fibrin glue compared to conventional suturing decreased the length of the procedure by approximately 30 minutes.
- Fibrin glue may also promote regeneration of injured mucsosa.
“By decreasing operative time use of fibrin glue for fixation is potentially more cost effective than traditional suturing techniques,” Dr. Parry said.
