Tissue sealants can be used to hold the flaps of internal organs together, to seal the blood vessels in case of injury/surgery or as an adjunct with hemostatic agents. These products are used to seal tissue and prevent leaks (blood, CSF, air, bile). They take the form of liquid sealant, patch embedded with a sealant agent, or flowable paste. Tissue sealants based on their composition can be classified as either synthetic or non-synthetic tissue sealants. The volume of tissue sealant used per procedure varies depending on the type of procedure and formulation. Tissue sealants may be sold in a kit consisting of a delivery device and an activating agent such as thrombin. These delivery devices and activating agents are not tracked under this segment. Tissue Adhesives allow for proper healing of the wound under the film and protects the wound from microbial infections. Tissue adhesives based on their composition can be classified as cyanoacrylate-based tissue adhesives and other cross-linkable polymer-based tissue adhesives. The volume of tissue adhesive used per procedure varies depending on the type of procedure and formulation.

The tissue sealants and adhesives market in Portugal can expand or contract due to a variety of reasons including population demographics, disease incidence and prevalence, macroeconomic issues, and geopolitical considerations. Disruption to a market could be caused by a sudden, unexpected change in these factors, but it could also be driven by changes in clinical practice, leading to a change in diagnosis or treatment of patients, as part of a process to generally improve medical practice.
