Kidong Kim, Seoul National University Hospital
ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier:
NCT01715597
First received: October 22, 2012
Last updated: December 24, 2013
Last verified: December 2013
  Purpose

The investigators want to know whether the intravenous ascorbic acid would reduce the blood loss during laparoscopic myoma surgery. The investigators randomized patients into intravenous ascorbic acid group and placebo group and examined the blood loss in both groups.


Condition Intervention Phase
Uterine Leiomyoma

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • blood loss [ Time Frame: during laparoscopic myomectomy ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Other Outcome Measures:
  • time of operation [ Time Frame: during laparoscopic myomectomy ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • the amount of transfusion [ Time Frame: during laparoscopic myomectomy ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • the difference of hemoglobin [ Time Frame: postoperative day 1 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    postoperative day 1 hemoglobin - preoperative hemoglobin + hemoglobin increased by transfusion (hemoglobin 1 per RBC 1 pack transfusion)

  • acute urinary retention [ Time Frame: 2days after the operation ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Estimated Enrollment: 50
Study Start Date: December 2012
Estimated Study Completion Date: March 2014
Estimated Primary Completion Date: March 2014 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
