ALVAREZ RAMIREZ, Diana; CRUZ MORALES, Rosario  y  CABALLERO LOPEZ, Dunia. Tisuacryl usage in protecting gingival surgical injury: Matanzas 2004. Rev. Med. Electrón. [online]. 2009, vol.31, n.4. ISSN 1684-1824.

The surgical procedure in treating chronic fibrous and fibro-edematous gingivitis leaves a very painful exposed surface of connective tissue that has to be protected, minimizing the possibility of post-surgery infection and hemorrhage. With that purpose we use periodontal dressings with eugenol, without eugenol, with fat contain and with drugs. Tisuacryl has the property of adhering to the lively tissue, and allows to seal recent injures. Having this into account we carried out a controlled, open, randomized, phase II clinical trial using the design of parallel groups, to evaluate the therapeutic efficacy in protecting gingival surgical injury resulting from the gingivoplasty versus surgical cement Quirucem. The working universe was formed by 60 12-to-60 years-old patients of both sexes having fibrous and fibro-edematous gingivitis, who assisted the Periodontics Service of the Specialized Teaching Dental Clinic “III Congress of the CCP”, Matanzas, in the period from May 2003 to May 2004. The patients of the study group did not present post-surgical gingival edema seven days after being surgically operated; 93,3 % of them referred commodity for masticating, deglutition and phonating and 60 % was in the category of Good. The tissue adhesive “Tisuacryl” presented higher efficacy than surgical cement Quirucem in protecting surgical gingival injuries resulting from gingivoplasty. No adverse events associated to the application of Tisuacryl were reported.
