Part I: Information Sheet

Surgical glue (tissue adhesive) is used to close both major and minor wounds, such as
lacerations, incisions made during laparoscopic surgery, and wounds on the face and
groin. surgical glue costs more than sutures. Some people are allergic to it.
Surgical site infection is an infection that occurs after surgery in the part of the body where
the surgery took place. Surgical site infection can sometimes be superficial infections
involving the skin only. Other surgical site infections are more serious and can involve
tissues under the skin, organs, or implanted material.
Laparoscopic surgery is a type of surgery in which small incisions are made in the
abdominal wall through which a laparoscope and other instruments can be placed to
permit structures within abdomen and pelvis to be seen.
