Trasylol (Aprotinin)

Trasylol (Aprotinin)

Trasylol is a medication given to patients before heart surgery to reduce bleeding and the need for blood transfusions.

On February 21, 2008, two studies were published in the New England Journal of Medicine, which concluded that Trasylol causes an increased risk of death and kidney damage when compared to taking other medication, or no medication at all.

Previously, in January, 2006, Dr. Dennis Mangano conducted a similar study which had the same findings, however, it wasn’t until November, 2007 that Trasylol was actually pulled from the market.  Dr. Mangano estimates that approximately 1,000 people per month died between the time he released his article in January, 2006 and the drugs actual withdrawal in November 2007.

But, we were always in good hands as Brian and Maria are two of the hardest working and sincerest people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. They did a tremendous job.
