A new aneurysm wrapping material: polyglactin 910 + fibrin sealant.

Aneurysms experimentally induced by using the silver nitrate coagulation method in 10 Wistar Albino rats are wrapped with Polyglactin 910 and Fibrin Sealant. 6 weeks later the rats are sacrificed and compared with the control group. In the group in which Polyglactin 910 and Fibrin Sealant were used as the wrapping material, non-specific inflammatory granulation tissue development around the aneurysms is observed. We suggest that a Polyglactin 910 and Fibrin Sealant combination can be used as a wrapping material in the treatment of aneurysms where clipping is not possible.[1]
