Dermabond? is a liquid surgical sealant containing 2-octyl-cyanoacrylate that has been widely used during head and neck surgeries. The purpose of this study is to provide a summary of adverse events related to Dermabond? use during head and neck surgery, as reported in the MAUDE database. We identified 32 adverse events and 29 (90.6%) were patient-related events and 3 (9.4%) were operatorrelated events. Of the patient-related events, CD (20 [69.0%]) was the most common, followed by wound dehiscence (4 [13.8%]). All of the operator-related events were from inadvertent cut injury (3 [100%]). Further studies are needed to establish the causation of contact dermatitis in certain populations.
