Superglue Saves Newborns Life

Superglue Saves Newborns Life

A 20-day-old girl is alive today thanks to superglue.  Gina Julian rushed her infant daughter to Children’s Mercy Hospital in Kansas City, Kansas when she would not stop screaming and vomiting.  Doctors found an almond size aneurysm deep within the baby’s brain and surgery was not an option.  Dr. Koji Ebersole used a hair thin catheter entered through the neck with a drop of surgical superglue inside and closed the bleed.
