The prevention of secondary hemorrhage after prostatectomy the value of anti fibrinolytic therapy






British Journal of Urology 52(1): 26-28

The prevention of secondary hemorrhage after prostatectomy the value of anti fibrinolytic therapy

This study examines the effect of antifibrinolytic therapy [tranexamic acid] on the incidence of secondary hemorrhage following endoscopic surgery. Consecutive patients [100] were allocated randomly to treatment and control groups. The incidence of secondary hemorrhage was reduced from 56% in the control group to 24% in the treatment group.
