Abstract:

Objective To evaluate the hemostatic effect of hemocoagulase agkistrodon on surgical wound in breast cancer surgery. Methods Totally 60 patients undergoing breast cancer surgery were enrolled in this prospective,randomized,double-blinded,and controlled study. All the patients met the inclusion and exclusion criteria and signed the informed consent. Hemocoagulase agkistrodon (2 U) was injected 20 minutes before surgery and 4 and 24 hours after surgery in the intervention group (n=30),whereas normal saline was used instead in the control group (n=30). The volume of intraoperative bleeding,wound drainage volume 1-3 days after surgery,and total drainage volume were recorded. Meanwhile,the change of blood coagulation function,treatment safety,and clinical outcomes were observed. Results The intra-operative hemorrhage volume of the intervention group [(95.0±48.3)g] was significantly lower than that of the control group [(144.8±105.4)g] (t=-2.07,P=0.044). The volume of total drainage of the intervention group [(166.7±71.2)g] was significantly lower than that of the control group [(251.4±166.3)g] (t=-2.29,P=0.029). The hemoagglutination indicators were similar in the two groups and no complication such as thrombosis occurred. The length of hospital stay of the intervention group [(15.00±3.53)d] was similar to that of the control group [(15.92±2.32)d] (t=-1.057,P=0.297). No research drug-related adverse event was occurred in our study. Conclusion Hemocoagulase agkistrodon has good hemostatic effect for patients undergoing breast cancer surgery without increasing the risk of thrombosis.
