Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Biological glue is increasingly used in cardiac surgery. We report a case of type A aortic dissection repair that was complicated by subsequent pulmonary embolism due to BioGlue® (Cryolife Inc, Hennesaw, GA, USA). To our knowledge this is the first report of a case with this complication. Keywords: Pulmonary embolism; Biological glue.
