Background/Aims: The management of patients with cirrhosis requiring dental extractions is complicated due to an increased risk of post-operative bleeding. Topical hemostatic agents are usually required to control bleeding in these cases, as an adjunct to systemic measures of hemostasis. The aims of this randomized, prospective, single-blind clinical study are twofold. The primary aim is to compare the hemostatic efficacy of chitosan and surgicel in patients with cirrhosis after a tooth extraction, and the secondary aim is to assess the value of the current setting as a clinical model of post-operative bleeding following minor oral surgery.
