In November 1997, the US Food and Drug Administration approved a new class of adhesives for use in repairing wounds. These new products, known as cyanoacrylates, are a marked improvement from the older style adhesives introduced in North America 25 years ago. The author is the principal investigator on polymers for use in these new adhesives. This new super glue is applied directly over the approximated margins of a wound and dries in seconds. Importantly, these adhesives demonstrate an antibacterial property. As a fast and cost-effective method of closure, these new adhesives represent an important advance. Since these materials are relatively new, there has been no comprehensive book on the subject until now. This work provides, in one economical package, everything needed to understand and properly use these adhesives.
