An independent and shocking study published in January of 2006 revealed that the commonly used drug Trasylol was related to serious side effects including death. Trasylol is used often in surgeries, particularly surgeries involving the heart, and is now directly seen to be linked to kidney failure, heart attacks, heart failure, and other serious side effects.
If you or someone you know has recently had surgery and been given the drug Trasylol, contact a Washington Trasylol lawyer at our firm for a free consultation. The Bernard Law Group has years of experience in dealing with medical malpractice and defective drug related lawsuits in Seattle, Tacoma, Bellingham and all of Washington State.
Trasylol use has been on the rise, particularly in 2005 when sales by its manufacturer Bayer AG reached $600 million. While Trasylol was FDA approved for use in surgeries as way to stem excessive bleeding during surgical procedures it has also been being used for other reasons as well. Its overuse may mean that the number of side-effects, injuries and deaths from Trasylol are likely to grow as well. Our Washington Trasylol Lawyers can help you with your potential case.
The study revealing Trasylol’s risks was published in the January 26, 2006 issue of The New England Journal of Medicine. This study revealed that Trasylol doubled the risk of kidney failure in patients receiving the medicine. Trasylol was also seen increasing the risk of heart failure and heart attack by 55 percent more than patients who had not received it.
Trasylol has been in use since 1993 and our Washington Trasylol Attorneys are working hard at uncovering past cases and potential future problems from its uses. Bayer AG recently began seeking additional uses of Trasylol for FDA approval as well, potentially causing the number of cases to increase dramatically.
