Does anyone have experience using tissue adhesive for nail bed lacerations prior to reinsertion of fingernail?
I have one source, see below, that mentions this method:
I find that in my 2-3 yr old pts who slam their fingers in doors, the nailbed laceration is typically very small and is prone to tearing when using the smallest gut suture/needle I can find. Glue may be a way to have a better outcome (and quicker, too.) I didn't know if anyone else has experience with it?
