Texas Trasylol Lawyer Handles Trasylol Kidney Liver Failure Lawsuits
Evidence has shown that the heart surgery drug, Trasylol, can cause significant health problems including kidney failure resulting in death or the need for dialysis. Unfortunately, even though there has been significant knowledge of these potential health problems those profiting from the sale of Trasylol were slow to pull the drug off the market potentially causing thousands of deaths and kidney damage in tens of thousands of heart patients.
If you have lost a loved one after heart bypass surgery due to kidney failure or a loved one has suffered a heart attack, stroke, or kidney failure or other kidney damage requiring dialysis after heart bypass surgery, you may want to check if Trasylol was used in the surgery.

FDA Actions on Trayslol
The United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued a Public Health Advisory alerting doctors who perform heart bypass surgery, and their patients, that Trasyolol (aprotinin injection), a drug used to prevent blood loss during surgery, has been linked to higher risks of serious side effects including kidney problems, heart attacks and strokes in patients who undergo artery bypass graft surgery.
The FDA has also requested a suspension in the marketing of the drug Trayslol in the interest of patient safety based on their preliminary investigations of health problems and adverse reactions that have been associated with the use of Trayslol. The FDA is still investigating Trayslol and is working with Bayer, the study's researchers at the Ottawa Health Research Institute, and other regulatory agencies to undertake a thorough analysis of data to better understand the risks and benefits of Trasylol.
Unfortunately, there are limited treatment options for patients at risk for excessive bleeding during cardiac surgery. Thus, FDA is working with Bayer to phase Trasylol out of the marketplace in a way that does not cause shortages of other drugs used for this purpose.
The FDA has been notified that researchers with the Ottawa Health Institute stopped a study on Trasylol because the drug appeared to increase the risk for death compared to two other antifibrinolytic drugs used in the study. Antifibrinolytic drugs help slow the breakdown of blood clots and subsequent excessive bleeding. The preliminary data from this terminated study also suggested that fewer patients receiving the drug experienced serious bleeding events and that Trasylol may not be as effective as once believed or marketed.
The Use of Trasylol in Heart Surgery Increases the Risk of Kidney Failure and other Health Problems
Recently, scientific evidence has found that Trasylol, a drug frequently used during heart surgery to control bleeding, has been found to increase the risk of kidney failure in patients. Kidney failure can lead to death or requiring people to undergo kidney dialysis. It is estimated that over 100,000 people have been forced to undergo dialysis after receiving the drug.
A study published in the New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM) in January of 2006 revealed that Trasylol, in addition to increasing the risk of kidney failure in patients, Trasylol also increases the risk of heart attack, heart failure, and strokes. After this study many health care providers became aware of the dangers in using Trasylol.
It is estimated that over 20,000 people have died from use of Trasylol and Trasylol has increased worldwide medical costs by more than $1 billion per year.
