Abstract

Biosurgical preparations designed to promote surgical hemostasis and tissue adhesion are being increasingly employed across all surgical disciplines. Fibrin sealant is the most widely studied and utilized biosurgical adjunct in urology. Complex reconstructive, oncologic, and laparoscopic genitourinary procedures are those most appropriate for sealant use. This article details the diverse urologic applications of fibrin sealant in the management of genitourinary injuries, surgery, and complications.
