Medline Skin Affix Topical Skin Adhesive Applicator is a sterile, high viscosity liquid topical skin adhesive is used to seal minor lacerations, wounds, and minimally invasive surgical procedures. For less invasive surgical incisions or simple trauma lacerations, skin affix can replace sutures with a diameter of 5-0 or smaller. It's made to reduce time while wounds are being repaired, create a flexible, water-resistant microbiological barrier, and eliminate the need for sutures. The glue forms a film that lasts for 5 to 10 days before sloughing off naturally as the skin renews.

Safety Precautions of Skin Affix Topical Skin Adhesive by Medline

  • This product is meant for external dermal application only.
  • Hold the applicator away from yourself and the patient and break the ampoule close to its center one time only. Do not crush the contents of the applicator tube repeatedly as further manipulation of the applicator may cause glass shard penetration of the plastic tube.
  • Safety and effectiveness of Skin Affix topical skin adhesive has not been evaluated for use on wounds of patients with uncontrolled diabetes mellitus, diseases or conditions that are known to interfere with the wound healing process, or a personal or family history of keloid formation or hypertrophic scarring.
  • Safety and effectiveness have not been evaluated on wounds that have been treated with Skin Affix topical skin adhesive and then exposed for prolonged periods of time to direct sunlight and tanning lamps.
  • Skin Affix topical skin adhesive permeability by topical medications or other fluids is not known and has not been studied.
  • Liquid, ointment, or cream medications should not be applied to the wound after closure with Skin Affix, as these substances may weaken the polymerized film which may allow for wound dehiscence.
  • If unintended bonding of intact skin with Skin Affix should occur, removal may be accomplished by using either acetone or petroleum jelly. Typical cleansers such as soap and other agents such as water, saline, Betadine, or chlorhexidine gluconate are not expected to loosen the bond. Peel, do not pull the skin apart.
  • Skin Affix topical skin adhesive is a viscous liquid prior to polymerization. To prevent inadvertent flow of Skin Affix topical skin adhesive to unintended areas the wound should be placed in a horizontal position, with Skin Affix topical skin adhesive applied from above.
