Abstract
OBJECTIVE In this study we aimed to determine whether Desmopressin (DDAVP) can alter bleeding and improves surgeon visual field and decrease operation time or lessen use of anesthesiology medication in a clinical trial study. METHOD This study is a randomized clinical trial using the permuted block randomization method. 44 patients were enrolled in study and divided into two equal intervention-control groups. The intervention group received maximum dose of 0/2 micrograms per kg of DDAVP. In the control group, 30 min before the surgery, 100 ml of normal saline will be injected. RESULTS The amount of bleeding was 517/17 cc in control group during surgery while it was 387/72 cc in group receiving DDAVP which is significantly lower. The satisfaction of surgeon regarding suitable visual field was 6/45 in control group while it was 3/77 in DDAVP receivers which is lower. CONCLUSION It seems that intravenous DDAVP can reduce bleeding during surgery and offer an enhanced vision for surgeon during surgery but it has no potential efficacy on reduction of period of surgery and need for anesthesiology medication like remifentanil and isoflurane.
