ABSTRACT
PURPOSE:
To study tissue adhesive effectiveness in with laceration at various body sites.
METHODS:
From January 2007 to December 2009, we collected the data of laceration patients treated using tissue adhesive in the emergency department of a university hospital. Data concerning treatment satisfaction were collected twice and analyzed.
RESULTS:
Of the 8665 patients with laceration, 196 (mean age 23 years, 106 males) were treated using tissue adhesive. Many of the 196 patients were <15-years-of-age. Involved body sites mainly comprised head/neck, followed by the upper extremities. The procedure was the most rapid of all treatments.
CONCLUSION:
Emergency physicians can reliably use tissue adhesive treatment for various lacerations in the emergency setting.
