ABSTRACT:Haemocoagulase a topical haemostatic agent which is dervided from venom of Brazalian snakes. Haemocoagulase directly acts on common pathway of cloating and has shown promising results as a haemostatic agent. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of haemocoagulase in stopping the bleeding & its effect over wound healing after asymptomatic orthodontic extractions.
Material & Methods: Present study involves 25 healthy patients referred for bilateral orthodontic extractions of Maxillary First Premolars between age of 14 to 16 years. On one side topical hemocoagulase sprinkled on the wound post operatively while on the other side Chlorhexidine gluconate solution 0.1% V/V was sprinkled on the wound. Site was determined by coin toss method. Data was collected on a predesigned Proforma.
Conclusion: Use of Haemocoagulase after extraction not only provides faster haemostasis but also improves healing by rapid formation of healthy tissue.
