Abstract

The aim of this study was to evaluate the cicatricial repair of perforated cornea in rabbits, by using the N-butyl cyanoacrylate adhesive compared to the 910-polyglactine nº 7-0 thread suture through macroscopic and histological assays. Corneas from 18 adult rabbits were perforated and soon after submitted the synthesis with N-butyl cyanoacrylate synthetic adhesive right ocular globe or by simple interrupted sutures using the 910-polyglactine thread left ocular globe. The animals were separate in three groups of the same number. Examination after 7, 15, and 30 days post-operative showed that both the synthetic adhesive and the suture were efficient in the synthesis of the surgical wounds, thus stabilizing the intra-ocular contents. The N-butyl cyanoacrylate adhesive was showed to be superior to the 910-polyglactine suture thread with regards to the evolution and the organization of the healing process.
