Tests extend tissue treatment:
Following real time stability tests on its Tissumend 11 Sterile absorbable adhesive for internal tissues, Veterinary Products Laboratories (VPL) has extended the dating on the product from 12 to 18 months. Tissumend II Sterile is used to close and seal internal tissues such as lungs, bronchial tubes and other internal organs. It can also be used to repair corneal defects. It must be refrigerated, and is available in pre-filled pipettes for ease of use during surgery.
