To decline this problem, some techniques and drugs are used. We examined the effect of clonidine given as an oral preanesthetic medication in producing a bloodless surgical field in patients undergoing rhinoplasty. Materials and methods: A prospective, randomized, double-blind clinical trial was performed in 40 patients scheduled for elective rhinoplasty under general anesthesia. Patients had been divided randomly in two groups. 20 patients received only diazepam 0.1 mg/kg and 20 patients received both diazepam 0.1 mg/kg and clonidine 3 µg/kg orally 90 minute prior to arrival at the operating room. Method of anesthesia were simillar in two groups. Intraoperative bleeding was assessed on a four-scale from 1=no bleeding to 4= abundant bleeding and also amount of blood in suction and number of gauze that total bloody. These data were recorded in data collecting sheets. Results: There were no significant statistical difference in sex and means of age between two groups (p<0.05). Mean age was 24.9±6 years. The mean of gauze number in group that recieved clonidine was 1.9±0.9 and in other group 3.6±1.1. The mean blood volume in suction was 65± 28cc and 125±30cc (clonidine recieved and other group, respectively). Statistical analysis using independent sample T-test shows significant difference between two groups (p<0.001). Conclusion: Premedication with oral clonidine 3 µg/kg reduce bleeding in rhinoplasty and improve surgeon’s satisfaction.
