    What Trasylol?
    Trasylol is a drug manufactured by Bayer AG. It is also, generically known as aprotinin. There are two generic forms of Aprotinin also used by doctors during cardiac surgery. Trasylol is an injection used to reduce bleeding and clotting during open heart cardiac bypass surgery. Trasylol has been on the market for more than 13 years. It is used to prevent not only bleeding during surgery, but also to reduce inflammation. A recent study of Trasylol demonstrated side effects including an increase the risk of failure stroke, kidney failure, heart attacks. Some doctors are urging that the drug Trasylol be abandoned in favor of safer and cheaper alternatives.

    What is congestive heart failure (CHF) and the symptoms of CHF?
    Congestive heart failure also referred to as CHF or simply "heart failure" is a condition in which the heart can't pump enough blood to the body's other organs. This can result from a number of causes, including blockages of arteris, scar tissue, high blood pressure, infections which have attacked the heart (known as endocarditis or myocarditis), breakdown of the heart muscle tissue (also known as cardiomyopathy), birth defects (also known as congenital heart defects), or rheumatic fever. When CHF is caused by blockages, one of the treatments is cardiac bypass surgery to remove blockages or to replace blocked valves with a tissue that "bypasses" the blocakge. The signs of heart failure include: shortness of breath (also called dyspnea), persistent coughing or wheezing, edema (build up of fluid in the body), tiredness, loss of apetite, confusion or imapred thinking, racing heart (palpitations).

    What is cardiac bypass surgery?
    Cardiac bypass surgery, also referred to as coronary artery bypass surgery , is a heart operation, usually performed as "open heart surgery". During this surgery, tissue from another part of the patient (e.g. veins from the leg (or tissue from a donor - biomedical tissue) or from another animal (e.g. pig valves) are used to go around or “bypass” clogged coronary (heart) arteries so blood can flow through the new vessels to the heart muscle the way it should. This is a type of heart surgery also called CABG ("cabbage") reroutes blood around clogged arteries to improve blood flow and oxygen to the heart.

    What is kidney failure and what are the signs and symptoms of kidney failure?
    Kidney failure results from severe damage to the nephrons, the tiny structures that exists within the kidneys. The kidneys are the part of your body that filter blood. Sometimes kidney damage occurs gradually, but in the case of damage from pharamceutical drugs, it can happen rapidly. Kidney failure (also known as renal failure_)cam happen in both kidneys. When the damage happens slowly, there often are not any obvious symptoms, so you don't know it's happening. When the kidneys fail, waste accumulates in the blood and the body. This build-up is called "azotaemia". At low levels, there may be no symptoms. If the kidney (or renal) failure is of sufficient degree to cause symptoms, it is called uraemia. The symptoms of uraemia kidney failure are: difficulty breathing, tiring easily, swelling, high blood pressure, chest pain, memory problems and forgetfulness, sexual performance changes, loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, itching, cramping, and skin pigment changes.

    What is aprotinin (Trasylol) made from?
    Aprotinin is natural proteinase inhibitor derived from the lung tissue of cows. It is the leading drug manufactured by Bayer AG.

    Should I contact Bayer AG about life threatening Aprobtin side effects?
    No. You should contact your doctor and have your doctor file an adverse reaction report with the FDA. You should also consider contacting an expert Aprotinin lawyer to discuss your legal rights. Also call the FDA MedWatch at 1-800-FDA-1088.

    What are common mis-spellings of the term Aprotinin
    Our research has revealed that people often mistakenly search for information on: Aprontin, Aprontinin & Aprotin.

    What other drugs are part of the Aprotinin administration?
    TISSEEL VH Baxter Fibrin Sealant. Tisseel action simulates key features of the physiological process of wound closure. A highly concentrated fibrinogen aprotinin solution, which among other ingredients contains Factor XIII, and a solution of thrombin and calcium chloride are applied to the wound area, where the mixture coagulates. The presence of Factor XIII causes the fibrin to crosslink, which gives the coagulum additional resilience.
