Intraoperative blood loss is a problem in lacrimal sac surgery. In this prospective double blind study we compared the intraoperative blood loss in patients having preoperative tranexamic acid, ethamsylate, botropase and placebo (vitamin B complex). The patients treated with anyone of preoperative tranexamic acid, etamsylate, botropase have significantly lower intraoperative blood loss and less operating time as compared to the placebo group.
