fixing split branches on Pom Pom shrub

I live out here in Pittsburgh and just got back from vacation and noticed a few branches from my arborvitae pom pom split about half way threw from ice and snow falling from the roof.

has any one had any experience repairing these? I read to use panty hose to tie up and shellac to seal from insects but im not convinced that would be best.
let me know you thought on this one would hate to lose any branches these shrubs are very expensive and makes a great focal point.
