The use of Fibrin glue to place conjunctival graft will be as effective as suturing the graft, but will require much less operative time and will be better tolerated by the patients.
Suturing a conjunctival auto-graft has become one of the most popular and effective methods in preventing recurrence. However suturing requires long operative time (10-20 minutes with removal alone less than 5 minutes) and requires sutures removal after 1-2 weeks which is very inconvenient to the patient.
Using Fibrin Glue (Quixil) has been used in several places in pterygium surgery and we believe it will be as effective as suturing the graft, will use much less OR time (reduce surgery time from 40 minutes to 20-25 minutes) and will be less expensive since 2 ml glue (around 80US$) suffice for 10 cases, while one vicryl suture costs around 34 US$.

Implants used in arthroscopic surgery and other orthopedic procedures to attach soft tissue to bone. One end of a suture is tied to soft tissue and the other end to the implant. The anchors are made of a variety of materials including titanium, stainless steel, or absorbable polymers.
Agents that affect the function of FIBRIN in BLOOD COAGULATION. They used as COAGULANTS for HEMORRHAGE or ANTICOAGULANTS for THROMBOSIS.
Corneal and conjunctival dryness due to deficient tear production, predominantly in menopausal and post-menopausal women. Filamentary keratitis or erosion of the conjunctival and corneal epithelium may be caused by these disorders. Sensation of the presence of a foreign body in the eye and burning of the eyes may occur.
