Octyl-2-Cyanoacrylate adhesive for rapid nail plate restoration.
Following nail bed repair, returning the nail plate as a conforming stent or splint is a common technique. Especially when split, the nail plate fragments can very readily be pieced together and bonded to the nail bed using the tissue adhesive Octyl-2-Cyanoacrylate. This new formulation can expedite this maneuver, and has shown no signs of histotoxicity or adverse effect on nail plate regeneration.
