Scientists from St Petersburg University, together with colleagues from 22 countries, find a way to minimise perioperative bleeding

22 April 2022

Doctors from the Pirogov Clinic of High Medical Technologies at St Petersburg University, together with their colleagues from 114 hospitals across the globe, have conducted a study in the use of tranexamic acid for perioperative blood management. The study results show that tranexamic acid reduces the incidence of bleeding in patients undergoing noncardiac surgery by 25%, while not increasing the risk of thrombosis.
