Abstract

Precise fixation of fracture fragments is important for the successful management of facial bone fractures. However, the conventional metal plates and screws used in such procedures are sometimes difficult to place when the facial bone fracture occurs in a narrow area or has significant comminution. We report herein our experience with 6 patients with facial fractures, which were difficult to fix using titanium plates and screws. All injuries were satisfactorily repaired using octyl-2-cyanoacrylate (OCA). In addition, there were no significant complications related to OCA during the follow-up period.
