Tranexemic acid

N Balasubramanian, G B Natarajan, S Prakasam
The number of total knee arthroplasties (TKA) performed is around two million annually worldwide and this number is expected to increase fivefold by 2025. The most common indication is osteoarthritis of the knee. Blood loss is significant during the post-operative period and blood transfusion when necessary has its own drawbacks. The use of intravenous tranexamic acid has significantly reduced blood loss. We analysed 35 patients who underwent staged bilateral TKA between August 2013 and February 2016 and had administered intra-articular tranexamic acid for one knee and intravenous tranexamic acid for the other knee...

OBJECTIVES: This paper aims to determine whether the use of Tranexemic Acid (TXA) - soaked absorbable gelatin sponge could more effectively reduce post-operative blood loss and blood transfusion requirements among low-risk adult patients undergoing lumbar spine surgery. METHODS: A total of 90 consecutive patients undergoing surgery for multilevel posterior lumbar degenerative procedures were prospectively randomized into one of three groups: - TXA Soaked Gelfoam group, absorbable gelatin sponge group or control group...

Tranexamic acid (TA) act as anti-fibrinolytic agent and is widely used to limit bleeding in clinical practice. Tranexemic acid bind with plasminogen and prevent its conversion to plasmin, which limits the fibrinolytic pathway, so there is a theoretical risk of increasing thrombosis with high or prolonged therapy with TA. We encountered a case of acute arterial thrombosis following inadvertent administration of high dose of TA. A 27-years-old male with no other co-morbidity was ordered intravenous 1 gm TA to control excessive bleeding from previous bladder injury, but by mistake, he received 10 gm of TA...

INTRODUCTION: Management of the perioperative hemorrhagic risk is of major interest in patients undergoing total arthroplasty of the lower limb. Anemia in the postoperative period of that increasingly performed surgery carries its own morbidity and mortality. Better anticipation of its occurrence could be done with a refined knowledge of bleeding kinetics. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We conducted a retrospective study in a single centre on 451 consecutive patients undergoing elective unilateral primary total hip or knee arthroplasty for osteoarthritis...

Post-partum haemorrhage is the first cause of maternal death in France. In addition to the treatment of the cause, its treatment consists in the association of procoagulant drugs and blood transfusion. At risk situations requiring blood transfusion are well identified. However, they are not found in one third of the actually transfused patients. Therefore, for all deliveries, the medical team should be prepared to face a post-partum haemorrhage and to transfuse. As post-partum haemorrhage onset is most frequently acute, it is rare to be able to base the transfusion decision on biological parameters such as haemoglobin concentration and / or coagulation tests...

BACKGROUND: There is accumulating evidence that fibrinogen is also a biomarker of oxidative stress in human plasma. Results of in vitro studies demonstrated that fibrinogen can bind to apolipoprotein(a) [apo(a)] component of lipoprotein(a) [Lp(a)] through both lysine-sensitive and lysine-insensitive mechanisms. The goal of the present study was to investigate oxidized fibrinogen reactivity (OFR) as a biomarker of oxidative stress in human plasma in the presence and absence of lysine analogs...

There have been important breakthroughs in the understanding and treatment of hereditary angioedema (HAE). An associated abnormality of the serum protein C1 inhibitor led to purified protein use to end attacks. Consideration of the endocrine functions led to rediscovery of impeded androgen use in disease prophylaxis. Considerations of pathophysiology led to introduction of epsilon aminocaproic and tranexemic acids in prophylaxis and to a resurgence in trials of new therapeutic agents. We have gone from a situation where it was not uncommon for patients to have a severe attack sometime in their lives that led to airway compromise and possible death to a situation where death from disease is highly unusual...

The amount of fibrinolytic activity in the thyroid gland equals that of the prostate. In order to examine the effect of the antifibrinolytic drug tranexemic acid on perioperative bleeding saline or tranexemic acid were given randomized double blind to 76 consecutive patients who came for scheduled thyroid surgery. No significant differences were found in perioperative bleeding between patients in the treatment group (n = 39) and control group (n = 37).
