The present study aimed to observe the combined effect of auricular pressure bean and compound tung leaf burn oil on postoperative incision healing in patients who have undergone circumcision. Total 160 patients who have undergone circumcision with disposable circumcision anastomosis at The First Affiliated Hospital of Nanchang University between August 2023 and October 2023, were recruited as participants for the study. They were divided into two groups, i.e., the control group and the observation group, using the randomised numerical table method. Each group consisted of 80 participants. The control group had received standard postoperative care, whereas the observation group had received additional treatment, i.e., the application of auricular pressure beans along with compound tung leaf burn oil along with routine care. Comparative analyses performed for various parameters such as postoperative 24-h pain score, initial changes in pain scores, duration of oedema subsidence, time of anastomotic nail dislodgement, the manual removal rate of anastomotic nails, incision healing time, the incidence of complications, and patient satisfaction statistically significant difference (p < 0.05) were observed in all parameters except the manual removal rate of anastomotic nails and the complication rate. In these two parameters, no statistically significant difference (p > 0.05) was observed. The application of auricular pressure bean along with compound tung leaf burn oil in patients who had undergone circumcision can significantly reduce the postoperative oedema duration, accelerate anastomotic nail removal and incision healing, reduce post-circumcision pain, and effectively promote overall patient recovery, thereby improving patient satisfaction.
