Enzymes are complex macromolecules of amino acids which biocatalyse various body processes. The aim of this study is to evaluate the effect of oral enzymes for control of infection and inflammation in post operative septoplasty cases. 40 patients planned for septoplasty under general anaesthesia were taken up for study. 20 patients were included in group E and were given a combination of oral enzymes postoperatively. Remaining 20 patients were included in group D and were given diclofenac and paracetamol combination postoperatively. Patients were evaluated post operatively after 1, 2 and 4 weeks for post operative pain , swelling , congestion , patient satisfaction and other criterias. The results showed that pain and swelling was significantly less in oral enzymes group . There was less nasal obstruction , discharge and more patient satisfaction in enzyme group. There were less complications in enzyme group. So it can be concluded that oral enzymes are more effective for control of infection and inflammation in post operative septoplasty cases.
