Purpose: To evaluate the effect of aspirin on bleeding in patients undergoing oral surgery
N= 39 patients.
Inclusion and exclusion criteria:
1.Patients using 100mg of aspirin daily on a regular basis.
2.Patients with anemia, or patients receiving sodium warfarin therapy.
Materials and methods:
•All patients were scheduled to undergo dental extractions ( simple extraction was the most common )
•The sample was divided to two groups
•Experimental group ( 19 patients ) >> continued using aspirin
•Controlled group ( 20 patients ) >> stopped aspirin seven days before extraction
•Normal bleeding time range : 1 to 4.5 minutes.
Most highlighted results:
•Experimental group: had a bleeding time of 3.1 ±.65 minutes
•Controlled group: had a bleeding time of 1.8 ±.47 minutes
Clinical significance: Patients receiving low-dose aspirin should continue to receive their daily use during the preoperative period.
