The use of surgical glues in aortic surgery has gained wide popularity due to their hemostatic and tissue reinforcing properties. Reports of acute complications associated with application of glue are rare. We report the case of a 52-year-old fragile, steroid-dependent woman who developed acute intraoperative dysfunction of an aortic prosthetic valve due to use of BioGlue surgical adhesive. A brief literature review of the acute and long-term complications of the glue is presented.
