Background: The control of parenchymal hemorrhage, especially in liver parenchyma, despite surgical science progresses, is still one of the challenges surgeons face saving the patients� lives; and there is a research challenge between the researchers in this field to introduce a more effective method. This study aimed to determine the hemostatic effect of zinc chloride on controlling the bleeding from liver parenchymal tissue. Methods: In this animal model study, 60 male Wistar rats were used. An incision with length of 2 and depth of 0.5 cm was made on each mouse�s liver and the hemostasis time was measured using zinc chloride different concentrations (5, 10, 15, 25, and 50) and the control method (i.e. control of bleeding via suturing). Findings: In all the groups, complete hemostasis occurred; the hemostasis times of zinc chloride concentration groups were significantly less than that of the control group (P < 0.001). At concentrations of 5, 10 and 15 of zinc chloride and suture group, pathological grade one was seen. In addition, in the 25 and 50 zinc chloride groups, pathological grade two was the most common grade (70 and 80, respectively). Conclusion: Zinc chloride is an effective hemostatic agent in controlling liver parenchymal tissue hemorrhage in an animal model; it can control the liver bleeding, also at the lowest concentration (5). © 2015, Isfahan University of Medical Sciences(IUMS).
