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.
