Abstract

This chapter deals initially with the underlying principles of adhesion and adhesives and the understanding of interfacial behaviour. This provides a basis upon which to understand biological interactions (. Chapter 12). The two broad types of adhesive materials encountered in wound healing are pressure-sensitive adhesives (PSA) and tissue sealants. The function of pressure-sensitive adhesives is to form an adhesive bond between tissue and biomaterial under the influence of pressure. Tissue sealants are liquids that convert to solid form at the tissue surface and in so doing form either an effective seal against fluid leakage or a bond between adjacent tissue surfaces. The different requirements and characteristics of these systems are discussed. © 2011 Woodhead Publishing Limited All rights reserved.
