Abstract

Aprotinin was associated with an increased risk of in-hospital mortality and morbidity following cardiac surgery, and aprotinin was not associated with a decrease in blood product requirements. Continued use of aprotinin in cardiac surgery should follow careful consideration, weighing the demonstrated risks and potential advantages compared with other TXA.
