Medbond Tissue Glue
Medbond contains purified n-butyl cyanocrylante monomer stabilizer and a D&C certified dye which permits defferentiation between the product and body fluids.
Medbond is a monomeric formulation which upon contact with an alkaline pH environment polymerizes to form a thin flexible waterproof bandage. Medbond polymerizes in apporximately one second after contact with moist wound surfaces. Polymerization is slower on a dry field.
By sealing off capillary ends Medbond acts as a hemostatic agent. It also seals off exposed nerve endings.
The liquid form is indicated for wound management in a variety of situations such as:
- Lacerations and Abrasions
- Cat Declaws
- Tail Docking
Medbond is contraindicated in management of infected and deep puncture wounds.
Proper preparation of wound site is critical for using Medbond successfully. If antiseptic treatment is desired for the wound site wash the area with a povidone solution. After preparing the wound site use sterile gauze to remove any accumulating blood or moisture from the wound. DO NOT APPLY MEDBOND OVER A POOL OF BLOOD OR FLUID. This causes improper polymerization of the bandage and results in premature sloughing of the bandage.
Hold the tip of the bottle fitted with the applicator tip slightly above the wound. Release the Medbond drops one-at-a-time until the wound is completely covered. DO NOT OVER-APPLY the Medbond. A light thin coat is better than a thick heavy coat. Too much Medbond will lose flexibility and could develop microscopic cracks.
- Avoid contact with skin and eyes.
- Avoid contact with clothing since the stain will be permanent
- Avoid contact with metal instruments.
Medbond may be stored at room temperature. Avoid prolonged exposure of Medbond to temperatures above 32°C (90°F). The product should not be used beyond the indicated expiration date.
Use Of The Applicator Tip:
The applicator tip fits snugly in to the tip on the medbond bottle. This allows greater control over the size and placement of the drop. Also the tip can be bent providing easier delivery in tight places.
The applicator tip can be left in place over an extended period of time. However if you remove the tip please remember to wipe clean the applicator tip on teh Medbond bottle before replacing the cap.
Removal Of Medbond:
Medbond can be removed from skin or other sufaces with dimethysulfoxide or acetone.
