Trasylol is a drug that was approved in 1992 to control bleeding during cardiac bypass surgery. By 2005, the drug was used in one-third of all open-heart surgeries. Trasylol was recalled in 2007 after several studies linked the drug to kidney damage, kidney failure, and other serious complications.
Dangerous Trasylol Side-Effects
- Kidney failure
- Kidney damage
- Congestive heart failure
- Heart attack
- Death from any of these problems
If you or your loved one suffered any of these side effects after cardiac surgery, you may have a Trasylol injury case. In order to file a claim, the injury victim must meet the following requirements:
- The patient must have had open heart surgery between 1993 and 2007.
- The patient must have been treated with Trasylol during the surgery.
- The patient must have suffered one of the listed side-effects during or after the surgery.
You aren’t a doctor, and you may not know whether Trasylol was during the heart surgery. However, this information is recorded in the patient’s medical records. Your doctor will be able to obtain those records and tell you if the drug was used.
