NCT ID: NCT02051686 Completed - Clinical trials for Acetabulum Fractures

Hemostasis in Open Acetabulum and Pelvic Ring Surgery Using Tranexamic Acid

Start date: June 2013
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

This study is investigating the use of tranexamic acid (TXA) in patients with pelvis and/or hip socket fractures that require surgery. TXA is FDA-approved in patients with hemophilia for short-term use to reduce hemorrhage and the need for replacement blood during tooth extraction. However, it has also been used extensively in severely injured patients after major trauma and during elective hip and knee replacements. Previous studies indicate TXA may reduce blood loss and the need for blood transfusions while being safe for use in most patients. TXA is fairly inexpensive and easy to obtain. The purpose of this study is to determine if TXA will make surgery in patients with pelvis and/or hip socket fractures safer and more cost efficient.
