Abstract: Purpose: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the versatility of Feracrylum as a haemostatic agent following minor oral surgeries, without altering the regimen of an anti-platelet drug. Method: The post-operative bleeding was assessed in 100 patients on anti-platelet drug following minor oral surgical procedure by comparing the Feracrylum group with the saline-soaked gauze as pressure pack. Result: In group 1, 100% patients and in group 2, 18% patients had ooze from the surgical site after 2 minutes and 5 minutes with the p-value of 0.012. The bleeding was significant in group 1 at 24th hr., 2nd and 3rd post-operative day with the p-value of 0.01 and 0.135, though no noticeable bleeding was detected in group 2 respectively. Conclusion: Introduction of Feracrylum is alchemy in oral and maxillofacial surgery to restrict the local bleeding following minor surgery in the oral cavity for those patients who are on anti-platelet drug with least systemic circulation absorption.
