Hiren Dahyabhai Parmar, Supreet Dhananjay Bhatt.

Introduction: circumcision is a commonly performed surgery. Surgeons have become increasingly interested in the use of adhesive bonds. Recent advances have been made in the use of tissue glue in the circumcision. In this study, we used 2-octyl cyanoacrylate for closing circumcision wounds and we have reported our experience. Material & methods: this was a prospective non-comparative preliminary clinical study involving 30 patients where 2-octyl cyanoacrylate was used as a tissue adhesive for wound closure after formal circumcision at surgery department, Smt S.C.L. Municipal General Hospital from May 2008 to Nov 2010. Result: in this study, the mean time taken for skin closure by 2-octyl cyanoacrylate is much faster in last year of study. There is significant less pain. There is 10% (3 cases) of complications are observed. The wound cosmesis score on 90th post-operative day is optimal except in one patient of wound separation. Conclusion: the comparison with criterions of time taken foe skin closure, the post-operative pain, the cosmetic appearance of adhesive glue proves that 2-octyl cyanoacrylate skin closure is significantly better than the traditional skin suturing skin closure.

Key words: 2-octyl cyanoacrylate, suture less circumcision, adhesive glue skin closure
