Conjunctival autografting is currently the procedure of choice for pterygium excision. The graft is fixated with either sutures or fibrin glue. Glue fixation provides a quicker, less traumatic, and better cosmetic outcome, but it has disadvantages, too. This video shows a novel technique of graft fixation by using the blood in the surgical field, allowing it to clot naturally and then fixing the graft with this natural adhesive.
