Conclusions

1. Adequate surgical technique with meticulous hemostasis is the primary requisite to safeguard against post-operative hemorrhage in proctologic surgery.

2. The newer hemostatic agents are described, including topical thrombin, fibrin foam with thrombin, the gelatin sponge with thrombin, and oxidized cellulose.

3. Oxidized cellulose appears to be the agent of choice in proctologic surgery.
