Experimental Noble Operation Performed With Use of Tissue Adhesive

Arch Surg. 1971;102(5):503-504. doi:10.1001/archsurg.1971.01350050069020

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.
