Trasylol, also known as aprotinin, is a prescription drug manufactured by Bayer Corporation. Prescribed to patients undergoing open heart, hip replacement and other major surgeries, Trasylol reduces bleeding during operations. Studies have shown though that harmful side effects linked to Trasylol can outweigh the benefits in some patients.
If you have suffered side effects from Trasylol, or if a loved one has lost their life after taking the drug, you may be eligible to file a claim against the manufacturer. The United States Food & Drug Administration approved Trasylol in 1993, even though researchers had identified a possible link between the drug and kidney failure as early as the 1980’s. After several years of reports indicating its dangerous side effects, Bayer AG finally pulled Trasylol from the market in 2007. Several studies found that patients who received Trasylol during this time were more likely to suffer kidney failure and increased risk of heart attacks, heart failure, strokes, coma, and encephalopathy (a disorder or disease of the brain) than patients who received other types of therapies.

According to the national news show 60 Minutes, “Bayer marketed Trasylol aggressively until it was used in about one third of all cardiac bypass operations in America.” If you or a loved one took Trasylol and it led to kidney failure, or if a loved one died after being exposed to Trasylol in connection with a surgery, you may be able to file a Trasylol claim.
