TRANEXAMIC ACID IN DECREASING BLOOD LOSS DURING AND AFTER CESARIAN SECTION
Keywords:LSCS, Blood loss, Tranexamic acid
This study was done to evaluate the efficacy and safety of TXA in reducing the blood loss after placental delivery following LSCS and record any adverse effects following its administration. A total of 60 women, who underwent elective or emergency primary caesarean section at term between 37 and 42 weeks have been studied prospectively. They were divided into two groups. In the study group of 50, tranexamic acid 1 gm IV was given 20 minutes before making incision for caesarean section and the control group of 30 did not receive tranexamic acid. Tranexamic acid significantly reduced the quantity of the blood loss from time of placental delivery to 2 hours postpartum (P < 0.001) and from end of LSCS to 2 hours postpartum (P < 0.001). A safe dose of tranexamic acid has an effective role in reducing blood loss during LSCS without causing adverse reaction.
