Israeli Invents New Super Glue for Internal Surgery Incisions

By: JTA

Israeli Prof. Havazelet Bianco-Peled of Haifa’s Technion University has invented a new super glue that mechanically seals areas of potential leakage after surgery, without the need for sutures.

Bianco-Peled set up the Sealantis start-up at Technion in 2007, and the company now is expecting FDA approval for the “Seal-V” glue, developed from the cell walls of brown algae.

Seal-V retains its sealant capacity even on wet surfaces,” said Bianco-Peled. The glue also is biorestorbable, meaning that the body automatically absorbs it after the wound heals.

    the "devek" used now is an amazing product. It closes wounds without stitches,heals quickly, impervious to infection, and leaves no scar. It's wonderful that the new glue will do the same for internal wound closure. What a people, what a country, what a great place to be a proud Jew.

  5. Sholom Rosenson says:

    For years I've been using super glue on cuts rather than going to the hospital.
