: The aim of this meta-analysis is to assess the effectiveness and safety of intravenous application tranexamic acid (TXA) in primary simultaneous bilateral total knee arthroplasty (TKA). We searched electronic databases including PubMed, Embase, the Web of Science, the Cochrane Library and the Google Scholar, for published studies involving the intravenous application TXA in primary simultaneous bilateral TKA. All randomized controlled trials were included. The focus of the meta-analysis was on the outcomes of total blood loss, drainage volume, transfusion requirements and deep venous thrombosis (DVT) and/or pulmonary embolism...

Tranexamic acid is a widely used antifibrinolytic drug but its pharmacology and pharmacokinetics remains poorly understood. Owing to the recent knowledge on phospholipid-induced matrix effects during human plasma analysis, our aim was to develop a liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry method for the quantitation of tranexamic acid after efficient sample clean-up. Sample preparation consisted in phospholipid removal and protein precipitation. Hydrophilic interaction liquid chromatography was used and the detection was achieved with multiple reaction monitoring...

Uncontrolled massive bleeding with subsequent derangement of the coagulation system is a major challenge in the management of both surgical and seriously injured patients. Under physiological conditions activators and inhibitors of coagulation regulate the sensitive balance between clot formation and fibrinolysis. In some cases, excessive and diffuse bleeding is caused by systemic activation of fibrinolysis, i. e. hyperfibrinolysis (HF). Uncontrolled HF is associated with a high mortality. Polytrauma patients and those undergoing surgical procedures involving organs rich in plasminogen proactivators (e...

BACKGROUND: Irreversible hemorrhagic shock is characterized by hyporesponsiveness to vasopressor and fluid therapy. Little is known, however, about the mechanisms that contribute to this phenomenon. Previous studies have shown that decreased intestinal perfusion in hemorrhagic shock leads to proteolytically-mediated increases in gut permeability, with subsequent egress of vasoactive substances systemically. Maintenance of blood pressure is achieved in part by α1 receptor modulation, which may be affected by vasoactive factors; we thus hypothesized that decreases in hemodynamic stability and vasopressor response in shock can be prevented by enteral protease inhibition...

The management of chronic disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC) caused by aortic dissection has not yet been established. Even in cases where surgical correction is performed, therapeutic control of systemic hemorrhaging is still required. We herein report the successful treatment of a case of aortic dissection with a patent false lumen using tranexamic acid for acute exacerbation of chronic DIC. Oral administration of 1,500 mg tranexamic acid per day stabilized the coagulative and fibrinolytic parameters and relieved bleeding tendencies with no side effects...

Background. Postpartum haemorrhage (PPH) is a potentially life-threatening complication for women, and the leading cause of maternal mortality. Tranexamic acid (TXA) is an antifibrinolytic used worldwide to treat uterine haemorrhage and to reduce blood loss in general surgery. TXA may have effects on thrombin generation, platelet function and coagulation factors as a result of its inhibition on the plasmin. Methods. WOMAN ETAPlaT is a sub-study of the World Maternal Antifibrinolitic trial (WOMAN trial). All adult women clinically diagnosed with PPH after a vaginal delivery or caesarean section, are eligible for inclusion in the study...

Patients on vitamin K antagonists (VKA) often undergo invasive dental procedures. International guidelines consider all dental procedures as low-risk procedures, while bleeding risk may differ between standard low-risk (e. g. extraction 1-3 elements) and extensive high-risk (e. g. extraction of >3 elements) procedures. Therefore current guidelines may need refinement. In this cohort study, we identified predictors of oral cavity bleeding (OCB) and evaluated clinical outcome after low-risk and high-risk dental procedures in patients on VKA...

In the course of an uncomplicated sigmoidostomy a 63-year-old male who had severe comorbidity developed a critical bleeding due to dabigatran intoxication induced by acute kidney injury. Massive blood transfusions, tranexamic acid, Octaplex and haemodialysis were not effective. Administration of idarucizumab induced immediate clinical and paraclinical improvement. Dabigatran should be carefully administrated in patients who have any degree of renal insufficiency. Idarucizumab may be effective in severe bleeding caused by dabigatran...

Total knee arthroplasty (TKA) is associated with an increased need for blood transfusions and thus an increase in risks associated with blood transfusion such as transfusion reactions, infections, fluid overload, and altered mental status. Tranexamic acid (TXA) is an antifibrinolytic medication that can reduce perioperative blood loss in TKA. However, the best method of delivery has not been defined although topical intra-articular TXA (IA-TXA) may have a theoretical advantage as it is applied directly when and where it is needed to control bleeding...

Transdermal administration of drugs represents an excellent alternative to conventional pharmaceutical dosage forms. However, insufficient penetration of the active pharmaceutical substance through the skin is a common problem. Thus, in the present study we evaluated the skin permeation enhancing ability of liquid crystal (LC) topical formulations. A recently developed LC-forming lipid, C17-monoglycerol ester (MGE), was evaluated and compared with glycerol monoolate (GMO), which is considered as the gold standard for LC formulations...
