Sydney: Whenever any living organism including a human being develops a wound, it will get healed on its own within a couple of minutes if it is not deep. However, if the wound is deep, it may require stitches.

With an aim to avoid stitches even in case of deep wounds, Biomedical engineers from the United States and the University of Sydney have developed a surgical glue, India.com reported.

The glue which has been tested on rodents and pigs can heal the wounds within a minute.
