The first recorded use of fibrinogen as a tissue adhesive was in 1940, when Young and Medawar employed it for bonding first peripheral nerves, and then skin [4]. After this time, interest in fibrin as an adhesive languished, owing to its inadequate strength and premature repair failures. It took a further three decades before the concept of a "blood glue" was successfully reintroduced by Matras in 1972 [5]. He used a cryoprecipitate containing elevated concentrations of fibrinogen, factor XIII, and fibronectin, as well as of other substances.

D Polymers Numerous products have been suggested but, of course, they cannot all be considered. As far as their common properties are concerned, it is important to stress the fact that they age physically and chemically. The following will be discussed: 1. Silicones, which are chemically inert, have good biotolerance and a high hydrophobic capacity. They are used in plastic surgery or in orthopedics in the form of elastomer rubbers for joint prostheses of the fingers, for example. 2. Polyacrylics, and more specifically, methyl polymethacrylate, are well known in the area of orthopedics as they are used as a cement for fixing prostheses.
