Trasylol® is a controversial medication sometimes given to patients before they undergo heart surgery. The drug was first approved by the Food and Drug Administration in 1993. In January 2006, however, Trasylol® became the subject of severe criticism and concern when a New England Journal of Medicine study linked it to a number of potentially harmful side effects, including:
- Heart attack
- Kidney failure
Some experts estimate that Trasylol® is responsible for kidney complications in thousands of patients, and some say the drug is far worse than Vioxx, the notoriously dangerous painkiller that was removed from the market in 2004.

Are You Eligible to File a Lawsuit?
A Trasylol® lawyer can evaluate your case and determine whether or not you are eligible to file a legal claim.
