Abstract

Fibrinogen is converted into fibrin by the action of thrombin under presence of calcium. In addition to its hemostatic effect, fibrin coagulum has tissue adhesive effect and fibroblast stimulating effect in the healing process. Perforating wounds about 1mm X 3mm in size were made in the center of rabbit corneas, and then were treated with fibrin glue. Simple full-thickness lacerations were also made in the central cornea of the other eye without any treatment as a control group. These eyes were enucleated after various periods of interval and the wound sites were studied with light and electron microscope. Tissue defect of perforated cornea was closed well by fibrin glue and active proliferation of the fibroblasts was seen near the glue. From these results, fibrin glue may be useful in the treatment of human corneal perforation and it will be used for the other ocular surgery.
