1. Summary

Abstract for the general public

This project will consist of a few parts. Firstly a literature review of the use of fibrin glue. Fibrin glue may be better than sutures or staples for skin cancer excisions. This study will compare using glue or staples. A survey of surgeons in regards to this skin glue and the extent of use will also be done to tell which surgeons don’t use glue.
