Tranexamic acid (TXA) has been shown to be effective in patients with total knee arthroplasty (TKA) in clinical studies with no consensus with regard to the most appropriate route of administration. We conducted a network meta-analysis to compare the evidences available on efficacy and safety of TXA in TKA. Electronic databases were searched for randomized, clinical trials and cohort studies that evaluated TXA in TKA. Publication bias, risk of bias and inconsistencies were assessed. Direct and indirect comparisons were carried out for blood transfusion rate and incidence of thrombotic complications...

BACKGROUND: Posttraumatic coagulopathy and inflammation can exacerbate secondary cerebral damage after traumatic brain injury (TBI). Tranexamic acid (TXA) has been shown clinically to reduce mortality in hemorrhaging and head-injured trauma patients and has the potential to mitigate secondary brain injury with its reported antifibrinolytic and antiinflammatory properties. We hypothesized that TXA would improve posttraumatic coagulation and inflammation in a murine model of TBI alone and in a combined injury model of TBI and hemorrhage (TBI/H)...

Prior studies have suggested that the antifibrinolytic drug aprotinin increases the infarct size after ischemia and reperfusion (I/R) and attenuates the effect of ischemic preconditioning (IPC). Aprotinin was replaced by tranexamic acid (TXA) in clinical practice. Here, we investigated whether TXA influences I/R injury and/or cardioprotection initiated by IPC and/or remote ischemic preconditioning (RIPC). Anesthetized male Wistar rats were randomized to 6 groups. Control animals were not further treated. Administration of TXA was combined with and without IPC and RIPC...

Introduction Current practice for the treatment of traumatic hemorrhage includes fluid resuscitation and the administration of blood products. The administration of tranexamic acid (TXA) within 8 hours of injury has been shown to significantly reduce mortality in a large, prospective, randomized controlled trial. As a result, TXA is widely used in trauma centres to manage trauma patients with major bleeding. The primary aim of this study was to assess the compliance of TXA administration at a level-one trauma centre in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada...

BACKGROUND: As interest in skin beauty increases, the development of new skin whitening agents has attracted substantial attention; however, the action mechanism of the agents developed so far remains largely unknown. Tranexamic acid (TXA) is commonly being used to reduce melanin synthesis in patients with melasma and also used as a raw material for functional whitening cosmetics, although its action mechanism is poorly understood. Autophagy has been well known to be essential for tissue homeostasis, adaptation to starvation, and removal of dysfunctional organelles or pathogens...

BACKGROUND: Fibrin sealants are topical agents used to reduce perioperative blood loss; however, their efficacy in total hip arthroplasty (THA) remains uncertain. The purpose of this study was to determine if a fibrin sealant containing aprotinin as an antifibrinolytic agent, TISSEEL (Baxter, Deerfield, IL), reduces postoperative blood loss and transfusion during THA when compared with intravenous (IV) tranexamic acid (TXA) and control groups. METHODS: Three retrospective uniform cohorts of primary THA procedures were identified, from a prospectively maintained database: 1 group who received TISSEEL, 1 group who received 1 g IV TXA, and 1 group who received neither (control)...
