Post-operative management of patients receiving oral biopsy includes the control of edema, pain, infection, and re-epithelization at the surgical site. This clinical study investigates the topical use of a bioadhesive gel, containing essential oils, to promote wound healing and prevent post-operative pain and infection, avoiding the need for surgical suture and chlorhexidine applications. Ten patients, who needed to receive oral biopsies (≤6 mm in diameter) for the diagnosis of mucosal oral lesions, were enrolled. The bioadhesive gel successfully controlled the post-surgical pain; at 1-week follow-up visit, no signs of infection nor side effects were reported and the surgical sites were completely healed. The bioadhesive gel resulted in a very promising agent for the post-operative management of oral biopsy site, without the need for surgical suture and chlorhexidine applications.
