N-Butyl-2-cyanoacrylate is another of the family of cyanoacrylate tissue adhesives. It has proven to be as good an adhesive as methyl-2-cyanoacrylate, but much less histotoxic. It is known that methyl-2-cyano-acrylate is completely degraded in the rat and excreted via the urine, feces, and probably the lungs. This study is designed to investigate the manner and extent to which butyl-2-cyanoacrylate is degraded and excreted from rat implant sites. Author
