Efficacy of Haemocoagulase as a Topical Haemostatic Agent after Minor Oral Surgical Procedures—A Prospective Study


Purpose: Haemocoagulase is a topical haemostatic agent which provides the adequate haemostasis after minor oral surgical procedures and it has also been proved to be beneficial in promoting wound healing. The aim of this study was to check the efficacy of haemocoagulase in stopping the bleeding and its effect over wound healing after the minor oral surgical procedure. Material & Method: This study is comprised of 150 surgical sites in 75 patients. The subjects were divided into 2 groups in which Group 1 consists of 50 surgical sites in 25 patients and Group II consists of 100 surgical sites in 50 patients. Group I comprised of the group of simple extraction. In these patients one tooth socket was selected as haemocoagulase site and the other socket was the control group in which no drug was used to control haemorrhage. Group II comprised of the group of patients with bilateral impactions. 50 sockets and surgical sites were sprinkled with Haemocoagulase, and 50 sockets and surgical sites were used as control side in which no drug was used to control haemorrhage. Results: In Group I bleeding was stopped with the average time of 1.35 minutes, while at control side bleeding was stopped with the average time of 2.25 minutes. In Group II bleeding was stopped with average time for haemostasis being 1.46 minutes, while at control side the bleeding was stopped in an average time of 2.43 minutes. Conclusion: Haemocoagulase after minor oral surgery not only provides faster haemostasis but also enhances healing.
