Tranexamic acid (TXA) is administered intravenously to prevent bleeding associated with cardiac surgery and by pass in adult and children. The pharmacokinetic of this product is unknown in the pediatric population. Only a few studies report a clinical efficacy with different dosages. The purpose of this study is to determine the plasma level of TXA using two different administrations methods: continuous versus intermittent. The second objective is to determine whether fibrinolysis decreased. The population consists in children weighting 10 to 30 Kilos, undergoing cardiac surgery and at high risk of bleeding.
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Dose Comparison, Endpoint Classification: Pharmacokinetics Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Single Blind (Subject), Primary Purpose: Supportive Care

The purpose of this study is to determine whether very low dose of preoperative tranexamic acid (5mg/kg) is as effective as low dose (10mg/kg) for intraoperational bleeding reduction in pa...
The investigators hypothesize that addition of Tranexamic acid, an antifibrinolytic agent, to conventional therapy will lead to an improved outcome characterized by lower transfusion requi...
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...
The purpose of this study is to test whether giving tranexamic acid to patients receiving treatment for blood cancers reduces the risk of bleeding or death, and the need for platelet trans...
Tranexamic acid (TXA) is widely used in the prevention of postsurgical oral bleeding. Tranexamic acid in addition to further surgical measures is widely utilized in prevention of post-surgical oral bl...
Tranexamic acid can prevent death due to bleeding after trauma and post-partum haemorrhage. We aimed to assess whether tranexamic acid reduces haematoma expansion and improves outcome in adults with s...
We describe the case of a bleeding trauma patient who received tranexamic acid (TXA) during air transport who subsequently developed multiple intra-cardiac thrombi. The administration of TXA during tr...
Tranexamic acid is a procoagulant agent that is approved by the US Food and Drug Administration for treatment of menorrhagia and to prevent hemorrhage in patients with hemophilia undergoing tooth extr...
Comparison of the efficacy of intravenous tranexamic acid with and without topical administration versus placebo in urgent endoscopy rate for acute gastrointestinal bleeding: A double-blind randomized controlled trial.
Tranexamic acid (TXA), a synthetic antifibrinolytic drug, is effective as a treatment for serious hemorrhage, including bleeding arising from major trauma and post-operative interventions. Significant...
Antifibrinolytic hemostatic used in severe hemorrhage.
Bleeding from blood vessels in the UTERUS, sometimes manifested as vaginal bleeding.
Agents acting to arrest the flow of blood. Absorbable hemostatics arrest bleeding either by the formation of an artificial clot or by providing a mechanical matrix that facilitates clotting when applied directly to the bleeding surface. These agents function more at the capillary level and are not effective at stemming arterial or venous bleeding under any significant intravascular pressure.
Abnormal uterine bleeding that is not related to MENSTRUATION, usually in females without regular MENSTRUAL CYCLE. The irregular and unpredictable bleeding usually comes from a dysfunctional ENDOMETRIUM.
UTERINE BLEEDING from a GESTATION of less than 20 weeks without any CERVICAL DILATATION. It is characterized by vaginal bleeding, lower back discomfort, or midline pelvic cramping and a risk factor for MISCARRIAGE.
Blood is a specialized bodily fluid that delivers necessary substances to the body's cells (in animals) – such as nutrients and oxygen – and transports waste products away from those same cells. In vertebrates, it is composed of blo...
