Tranexamic acid (TXA) is commonly administered during on-pump cardiac surgery to minimize bleeding. However, an optimal dosing regimen has not been described, and recent studies suggest that higher doses may be associated with seizure. Little is known about current practice among cardiac anesthetists.

Revision hip arthroplasty poses several challenges, including the management of perioperative blood loss. Recent studies have validated the use of tranexamic acid in primary total hip arthroplasty, sh...
To compare the efficacy of multiple doses of oral tranexamic acid (TXA) with topical TXA administration in reducing blood loss following total hip arthroplasty (THA).
The use of tranexamic acid reduces mortality due to postpartum hemorrhage. We investigated whether the prophylactic administration of tranexamic acid in addition to prophylactic oxytocin in women with...
Albumin is widely used during and after on-pump cardiac surgery, although it is unclear whether this therapy improves clinical outcomes.
The efficacy of tranexamic acid to control blood loss of lumbar spinal fusion surgery remains controversial. We conduct a systematic review and meta-analysis to explore the influence of tranexamic aci...
Tranexamic acid, an antifibrinolytic drug, is wildly used in cardiac surgeries to decrease perioperative bleeding and allogenic transfusion. But the optimum dose of tranexamic acid is stil...
Tranexamic acid is administered intravenously to prevent bleeding associated with cardiac surgery and cardiopulmonary bypass. We have developed an assay for tranexamic acid. We have deve...
The aim of this prospective, randomized, double-blinded, placebo-controlled study was to evaluate the effects of tranexamic acid, a synthetic antifibrinolytic drug, on the postoperative bl...
The purpose of this study is to determine tranexamic acid plasma levels in children undergoing cardiac surgery at risk of bleeding and to compare two dosing regimens.
The investigators primary objective is to compare the effectiveness of epsilon-aminocaproic acid (EACA) and tranexamic acid (TA) in reducing bleeding and transfusion in cardiac surgery, wi...
Solutions which, upon administration, will temporarily arrest cardiac activity. They are used in the performance of heart surgery.
Antifibrinolytic hemostatic used in severe hemorrhage.
Apparatus that provides mechanical circulatory support during open-heart surgery, by passing the heart to facilitate surgery on the organ. The basic function of the machine is to oxygenate the body's venous supply of blood and then pump it back into the arterial system. The machine also provides intracardiac suction, filtration, and temperature control. Some of the more important components of these machines include pumps, oxygenators, temperature regulators, and filters. (UMDNS, 1999)
The muscle tissue of the HEART. It is composed of striated, involuntary muscle cells (MYOCYTES, CARDIAC) connected to form the contractile pump to generate blood flow.
Measurement of this acid in the urine after oral administration of histidine provides the basis for the diagnostic test of folic acid deficiency and of megaloblastic anemia of pregnancy.
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
