Osteosynthesis with n-butyl cyanoacrylate was attempted in 10 cases. Maxillomandibular fixation was maintained for only 48-72 hours. No mobility of the fractured segments was found when tested by moderate manual force. Union took place uneventfully in all but one case. Cases were followed from one to six months with appropriate radiographs at regular intervals. Blood, urine, and serum analyses revealed no significant changes when compared pre- and postoperatively. Chromosomal study revealed no rise in the frequency of SCEs postoperatively. © 1987.
