Mussel-inspired glue could make fetal surgery safer

Mussel-inspired glue could make fetal surgery safer
Whether to perform surgery on a fetus is a heart-wrenching decision. This type of surgery involves penetrating the highly delicate amniotic sac, increasing health risks to the fetus. Now researchers report the development of a glue, inspired by the tenacious grip of mussels on slippery rocks, that could one day help save the lives of the youngest patients. The researchers are presenting their findings at the 254th National Meeting & Exposition of the American Chemical Society (ACS).
