Experimental transvitreal cyanoacrylate retinopexy.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

We used an experimental rabbit model of rhegmatogenous retinal detachment to compare the onset, quality, and duration of chorioretinal adhesions obtained by transvitreal application of N-butyl-2-cyanoacrylate mixed with iophendylate with those obtained by transscleral retinal cryopexy. The chorioretinal adhesions produced by the cyanoacrylate tissue adhesive were immediate in onset, stronger, and long lasting.
