How does DuraSeal compare to fibrin glues?
• DuraSeal has a higher tissue adherence strength and burst strength relative to fibrin glue* and reaches full strength within seconds. Suction and irrigation may be used in the vicinity of DuraSeal without fear of dislodgement. • DuraSeal is easy to visualize with its blue color and has been shown to produce TRUE watertight closure in patients tested clinically. • DuraSeal is a completely synthetic material and unlike fibrin glue, does not have any human or animal blood components. Thus, there is no potential for viral transmission with DuraSeal. • DuraSeal is stored at room temperature and does not need refrigeration like fibrin glues. • DuraSeal is the ONLY dural sealant approved for cranial use in the U.S.
