Objective: The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship between the amount of bleeding and bacteremia during tympanomastoidectomy surgery.

Material and methods: A total of fifty-seven patients undergoing tympanomastoidectomy were evaluated in the present study. The amount of bleeding was measured and recorded for each patient. Preoperative and intraoperative blood cultures were collected immediately after the induction of anesthesia and 45th min intraoperatively.

Results: Blood cultures taken preoperatively were negative, however the cultures obtained intraoperatively were positive in 7 (12.3%) of 57 patients who underwent tympanomastoidectomy, and bacteremia was more frequent among those with a greater amount of bleeding during the surgery.

Conclusion: The results of this study suggest that although bacteremia had no clinical consequences for patients, patients with more bleeding have an increased risk of developing bacteremia which may cause complications in higher risk individuals.
