When to Use Dermabond Surgical Glue?

Dermabond Advanced Adhesive is intended for topical application only to hold closed, easily approximated skin edges of wounds from surgical incisions, including incisions from minimally invasive surgery and simple, thoroughly cleansed trauma-induced lacerations. Dermabond Advanced Adhesive may be used in conjunction with, but not in place of, deep dermal stitches.

Dermabond Advanced Skin Adhesive Contraindications:

  • Do not use on any wound with evidence of active infection, gangrene, or wounds of decubitus etiology.
  • Do not use on mucosal surfaces or across mucocutaneous junctions (e.g., oral cavity, lips), or on the skin, which may be regularly exposed to body fluids or with dense natural hair (e.g., scalp).
  • Do not use it on patients with a known hypersensitivity to cyanoacrylate, formaldehyde, or benzalkonium chloride.

Storage Instructions:

  • Recommended storage conditions: below 30°C, 86°F, away from moisture, direct heat, and direct light. Do not use after the expiry date.

Precautions to take while using Ethicon Topical Skin Adhesive

  • Do not apply liquid or ointment medications or other substances to the wound after closure with Dermabond Advanced Adhesive. These substances can weaken the polymerized film and allow for dehiscence (skin edge separation). Prior to application, cleanse the application site thoroughly to remove any remaining blood, fluids or topical medications/anesthetics.
  • Dermabond Advanced: Adhesive, as a liquid, is syrup-like in viscosity. To prevent the inadvertent flow of liquid Dermabond Advanced Adhesive to unintended areas, the wound should be maintained in a horizontal position, with Dermabond Advanced Adhesive applied from above.
  • Hold the applicator away from yourself and the patient with the tip pointing down and break the ampoule close to the center of the bulb one time only. Do not crush the contents of the applicator repeatedly, as further manipulation of the applicator may cause glass shard penetration of the outer tube. Glass shard penetration can result in inadvertent skin punctures, which may result in the transmission of bloodborne pathogens.
  • Dermabond Advanced Adhesive should be used immediately after crushing the ampoule because the adhesive will polymerize in the applicator, rendering the device unusable.
  • If unintended bonding of intact skin occurs, peel the adhesive from the skin, but do not pull the skin edges apart. Petroleum jelly or acetone may help loosen the bond. Other agents such as water, saline, or soap, are not expected to immediately loosen the bond.
