Effect of Tranexamic Acid on Reducing Postoperative Blood Loss in Cervical Laminoplasty

2014-08-27 03:17:26 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose is to evaluate the efficacy of tranexamic acid in cervical laminoplasty; the surgical procedure used was identical in all cases.

Description

Tranexamic acid, an inhibitor of fibrinolysis, has proven to be effective in reducing perioperative blood loss in patients undergoing total hip and knee arthroplasty. However, limited numbers of well-controlled trials in spinal surgery have been conducted due to heterogeneity in the performed surgical procedures.
