Surgical adhesives that include a blend of two different thermoreversible gelling polymers and a crosslinking agent are described. The first thermoreversible gelling polymer is partially or fully acrylated and the second thermoreversible gelling polymer includes dual functionality including acrylate functionality and amine-reactive functionality. The adhesives can provide gelling and covalent crosslinking within the polymers of the adhesive as well as crosslinking with surrounding tissue.
