Are seizures really a problem after the use of antifibrinolytics?

Dmitry Rozin, Madelyn Kahana

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Antifibrinolytic therapy is important in hemostatic control during modern paediatric cardiac and non-cardiac surgery. There continues to be controversy regarding the available agents, e(epsilon)-aminocaproic acid and TXA, to utilize; whether there is a clearly superior choice. This discussion highlights the pharmacology differences between e(epsilon)-aminocaproic acid and TXA and reviews the data comparing the two drugs in paediatric cardiac surgical patients.
