trasylol_thumbTrasylol (aprotinin) is a drug prescribed to help reduce the risk of bleeding and blood loss during certain types of surgery such as heart bypass surgery. This drug was approved by the FDA in 1993 and is manufactured by Bayer Pharmaceuticals Corporation. In a 2006 study printed in the New England Journal of Medicine, adverse Trasylol side effects were discovered in an alarming rate among patients. These Trasylol side effects included increased risk of stroke, heart attack, heart failure, and kidney failure. The study found that the risk of heart failure or attack was increased by 55%, the risk of kidney failure was doubled, and the risk of stroke increased an astonishing 181% in patients using Trasylol. It was estimated that more than 11,000 patients per year might be on dialysis because they used Trasylol.

In November 2007, the FDA requested that Bayer suspend the marketing of Trasylol because of a Canadian study that suggested that users of the drug had an increased risk of dying. In February 2008 CBS 60 Minutes produced a video suggesting that Trasylol may have been the cause of more than 22,000 deaths. In May 2008 the FDA was notified by Bayer Pharmaceuticals that a nationwide recall of Trasylol would be initiated.
