Tissue Adhesive Composition: 0.1 g EPIGLU® solution contains: Ethyl-2-cyanoacrylate 95.45 mg Polymethylmethacrylate

EPIGLU

®

Each tube EPIGLU® contains 3 g and is sufficient for the treatment of at least 20 wounds. EPIGLU® provides no culture medium for germs, and even has an inhibitive effect on existing germs.
Areas of application: Tissue adhesive for external use and for the application in the oral cavity. For the application to fresh lacerations, abrasion and surgical incisions and also for protection / closure after removal of skin lesions (nevi, warts, moles, senile freckles and many other more). For the closure of wounds after careful adaption of the wound edges, as a suture substitute or for the additional suture support. Contraindications: Do not use on infected, inflamed or abraded wounds. Do not use to close wounds of inner organs, the brain surface or the central or peripherical nervous system. An application to these areas might damage the tissue and the subsequent scarring may cause complications. The application to the intima and media of blood vessels should be avoided, because vascular thrombosis and damage of the vascular wall may occur. In case of a hypersensitivity to one of the ingredients EPIGLU® is contraindicated. Precautions and warnings: Adheres skin and eyelids within seconds. Avoid any contact with eyes and eyelids. EPIGLU® must not come in contact with the eyeball or conjunctival sac. Apply to external wounds and the oral mucosa only. Ensure the exact adaption of wound edges prior to application. Keep surfaces to be adhered as dry as possible. Do not drip EPIGLU® into the wound, but apply in thin layers to skin surface. Apply only to fresh wounds. Do not use on contaminated or inflamed tissue. Do not inhale fumes! Do not apply to the breasts during lactation period. First aid actions to be taken in case of inadvertent contact of the adhesive with the eye: Serious mechanical damage may occur if eye or cornea come in contact with the adhesive. The affected eye must be rinsed with a sterile, saline solution (approx. 15 min) immediately after contamination. Should such a solution not be available in sufficient quantity, the eye may be rinsed with tap water. Application of sterile medical neutral oils may be of advantage. An ophthalmologist should be consulted immediately. Dosage and method of administration: CAUTION: EPIGLU® is to be used by medical expert staff only! 1. Remove EPIGLU® from the freezer just before use. EPIGLU® can be applied immediately. If it is not possible to store EPIGLU® in the deep freezer, store it at least in the refrigerator. 2. 2.1 Unscrew the tube cap completely. 2.2 Hold the tube upright at the top. 2.3 Punch the tube seal with the tip of the cap. Avoid squeezing the tube during this process. 2.4 Screw the complete cap on the tube. 2.5 Unscrew the upper cap and remove EPIGLU®. 2.6 If the tip should stick together after several uses, cut this area off. 2.7 Place the upper cap on the tube again loosely (do not screw it on) and store the tube upright in the gap of the package at least in the refrigerator, or even better in the deep freezer. 3. EPIGLU® can be applied either directly from the tube or with the dispensing pipettes. If dispensing pipettes are used proceed as follows: Drip the desired amount of EPIGLU® (approximately 1 – 3 drops) into one of the depressions of the palette. Soak up the solution with the dispensing pipette by squeezing the pipette approximately 1 – 2 cm behind the bend with thumb and index finger, dip pipette into the liquid and release your hold, or cut off pipette approximately 1 cm below the bend and affix cutted pipette directly to the tube’s opening. 4. Once the wound stops bleeding adapt the wound edges and apply a thin layer of EPIGLU®. Either fixate the edges on several points with EPIGLU® or adhere the entire wound at once. EPIGLU® sets very quickly. A later correction of the adapted wound edges is not possible. The solution should be applied in several thin layers. Each layer should set for approx. 2 minutes. It is not advisable to apply one thick layer, as this does not improve the adhesive strength, but causes EPIGLU® to peel off the healthy skin quicker. Avoid touching the wound with the dropper opening or dispensing pipette as they may adhere. Also avoid contact with instruments, gauze, etc. to prevent adhesion. Should EPIGLU® unintentionally come in contact with healthy skin, it will peel off after setting without damaging the skin.
