Los Angeles Trasylol Injury Attorney
Trasylol Side Effects and Injuries
Trasylol (aprotinin injection) is manufactured by the pharmaceutical company Bayer AG. This drug was developed to prevent or reduce blood loss and therefore the need for blood transfusions in particular types of heart surgeries. However, since its distribution and use worldwide, Trasylol has been linked to the following:
- Kidney failure;
- Heart attacks; and
The risk for the above conditions are increased when the drug is used in surgery. Bayer has since issued a worldwide recall of the drug, including the removal of all supplies from the United States and other countries, except in particular situations where local authorities wished to keep Trasylol in the market for special access programs.
