This one-and-a-half-day symposium will include the most up-to-date information in the field of tissue sealants and adhesives. The meeting will provide a forum in which researchers doing work with a variety of materials including fibrin sealant, collagen and thrombin, cyanoacrylates, polyethylene glycol polymers, and cross-linked albumin, as well as other innovative new materials, will have the opportunity to learn about why surgeons choose a particular sealant and to hear about the changing usage patterns for these products from institutions tracking these trends. Discussion will focus on safety issues in the use of sealants and adhesives. Delegates will have the opportunity to interface with national and international regulatory agencies and learn what they can do to better facilitate communications with these groups. Information will be shared on how to best design clinical trials and effective preclinical assays.
The Second Annual Guenther Schlag Tissue Sealant Award
will be presented for the most innovative abstract by a student or fellow at the meeting.
