Abstract

A prospective, randomized, double-blind trial of bladder irrigation with a 0.5% solution of epsilon aminocaproic acid (EACA) versus normal saline plus placebo was undertaken in 75 patients undergoing transurethral resection of the prostate for benign or malignant disease. Systemic absorption after irrigation with EACA was not detectable. No significant advantage, however, was demonstrated for the EACA solution over normal saline irrigation in measured postoperative blood loss, irrigant volume, hours of catheterization, or length of hospital stay.
