Trasylol Kidney Failure
Texas Trasylol Kidney Failure and Recall Lawyer
From 1993 to 2007, patients with heart ailments went to their doctors for advice and to their surgeons for invasive heart surgery. During these surgeries, many patients were administered Trasylol, also known as Aprotinin, as an anticoagulant to thicken the blood and reduce bleeding.
Unfortunately in 2006, studies reported that Trasylol increased the patients’ risk of kidney failure, blood clots, congestive heart failure and stroke. Subsequent studies indicate that as many as 22,000 people died as a result of usage from 2005 to 2007 alone.
In November of 2007, the FDA suspended the use of Trasylol. And in October 2008, Bayer, the drug’s manufacturer, withdrew all remaining stocks of Trasylol from the US market. Currently, thousands of patients and their families are left wondering about the effects of the drug administered during invasive surgeries since 1993.
