Background. The aim of this study was to assess the use of tissue adhesive for paediatric wound closure in a minor injuries environment.
Methods. A n-butyl 2-cyanoacrylate adhesive formulation was used for the closure of traumatic skin lacerations in 56 children.
Results. Tissue adhesive succeeded in approximating skin margins in all cases. No episodes of wound dehiscence were experienced. There were no incidences of wound infection.
Conclusions. This study indicates that this form of tissue adhesive can safely and effectively be utilised for traumatic superficial skin closure in children.
