As dermatological procedures continue to become increasingly complex, improved methods and tools to achieve appropriate hemostasis become necessary. The methods for achieving adequate hemostasis are variable and depend greatly on the type of procedure performed and the unique characteristics of the individual patient. In Part 1 of this review, we discuss the preoperative, intraoperative, and postoperative management of patients undergoing dermatologic surgery. We address oral medications and supplements that affect hemostasis, hemostatic anesthesia, and intraoperative interventions such as suture ligation and heat-generating cautery devices. In Part 2 of this review, we will discuss topical hemostats. The authors conducted an extensive literature review using the following keywords: źDQ╗hemostasis,źDQ╗ źDQ╗dermatology,źDQ╗ źDQ╗dermatological surgery,źDQ╗ źDQ╗dermatologic sutures,źDQ╗ źDQ╗electrosurgery,źDQ╗ źDQ╗hemostatic anesthesia,źDQ╗ and źDQ╗laser surgery.źDQ╗ Sources for this article were identified by searching the English literature in the Pubmed database for the time period from 1940 to March 2012. A thorough bibliography search was also conducted and key references were examined.
