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