Visibility in the surgical field reduced by bleeding is one of the most important problems of endoscopic sinus surgery. It causes the risk of serious complications and reduces intervention quality. Recently, an increasing number of patients undergo surgical interventions under general anesthesia. Since general anesthesia may influence surgical bleeding in physiological and pharmacological pathways, the role of an anesthesiologist is extremely important in reducing bleeding. The impact of different anesthesia methods on quality of the surgical field is being investigated, and the most effective medicines are being sought.
