Tranexamic Acid in Dacryocystorhinostomy (TA-DCR)
Recruitment status was: Not yet recruiting
Single dose tranexamic acid (TA) before dacryocystorhinostomy (DCR) operation: a prospective, double blind, placebo controlled study.
The study hypothesis: TA in DCR might reduce the intraoperative and postoperative bleeding in DCR surgery, and might reduce the duration of the surgery.
|Study Design:||Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Investigator)
Primary Purpose: Prevention
|Official Title:||Single Dose Tranexamic Acid for Dacryocystorhinostomy|
- 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. ]
- Late onset postoperative epistaxis or periorbital hematoma [ Time Frame: 8 days ]
|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)|
