Tranexamic Acid for Reduction of Blood Loss During Total Hip Arthroplasty
Journal of Arthroplasty, 06/18/2012
Imai N et al. – The authors found that the intraoperative blood loss in the preoperative tranexamic acid (TNA) administration groups was significantly lower than both control and postoperative TNA administration groups. Furthermore, 1g TNA 10minutes before surgery and 6hours after the first administration was most effective for the reduction of blood loss during total hip arthroplasty.
