Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Duration of DCR surgery in minutes and amount of blood loss in milliliters during surgery. [ Time Frame: Blood loss will be measured at the end of DCR operation from the suction bowel. Duration of surgery will be caculated by registering time of operation start and end. ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Late onset postoperative epistaxis or periorbital hematoma [ Time Frame: 8 days ]

Estimated Enrollment: 80
Study Start Date: December 2010
Estimated Study Completion Date: December 2012
Estimated Primary Completion Date: December 2012 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Tranexamic acid single dose of 500mg Drug: Tranexamic acid
Single dose TA 500mg or placebo will be given in DCR surgery right after the first surgical incision.
Placebo Comparator: Saline Drug: saline solution
5cc saline solution
