Abstract

Fibrin sealants have become increasingly popular in nearly all surgical specialties. The absorbable fibrin adhesive bandage (AFAB) is a novel, potentially revolutionary product made from dried fibrinogen and thrombin. The AFAB appears to have excellent efficacy in producing rapid hemostasis in a variety of experimental major renal trauma models. The AFAB also appears to enhance healing of the urinary collecting system. Further study is essential to explore new urologic applications of this exciting technology.
