An experimental Noble operation with the application of Histoacryl-N-blau tissue adhesive was used on 10 dogs. In nine survivors observed from 5 to 250 days, satisfactory adhesions were seen in seven. The advantages of speed of performance and avoidance of trauma render it preferable to the suture method and deserving of clinical trial.
