Aspirin Resistance in Different Doses by Bleeding Time and Urinary 11-dehydro-thromboxane B2.

Indian J Physiol Pharmacol 2016 Jan-Mar;60(1):30-7

The aim of the present study was the evaluation bleeding time (BT) in comparison to Urinary 11-dehydro thromboxane B2 (TXB2) regarding different ASA frequent dosages used in Borujerd city. This is a double blind randomized clinical trial on 370 subjects aged 35 years and older, referred to clinical offices in Borujerd. All ischemic heart disease’s patients were randomly assigned to 4 ASA dose groups (80 mg, 81 mg, 100 mg and 325 mg) and one group-matched control group without any IHD. BT was measured by Ivy method; TXB2 was measured in a urine sample, both at least 5 days after ASA consumption. Probale AR was indicated if TXB2 was normal or higher than normal higher limit values, or BT was normal or lower than normal higher values. (IRCT201202026958N3) Probale AR was present in 37.6% and 64% resistance by BT and TXB2, respectively. All 4 treated groups had higher TXB2 levels than the control group/normal values (p>0.05). Also, urinary TXB2 level correlated positively with BT. Given the simplicity and low costs of its performance it might be of some potential use in developing countries. However, due to IVY method limitations it cannot be perceived as a tool to assess such specific aspects of platlat function or aspirin resistance.

Tranexamic acid in patients with complex stones undergoing percutaneous nephrolithotomy: a randomized, double-blinded, placebo-controlled trial.

BJU Int 2021 Feb 25. Epub 2021 Feb 25.

Division of Urology, Hospital das Clínicas, University of Sao Paulo Medical School, Sao Paulo, Brazil.

Objectives: To assess the efficacy and safety of single-dose tranexamic acid on the blood transfusion rate and outcomes of patients with complex kidney stones who have undergone percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL).

Material And Methods: In a randomized, double-blinded, placebo-controlled trial, 192 patients with complex kidney stone (Guy's Stone Scores III-IV) were prospectively enrolled and randomized (1:1 ratio) to receive either one dose of tranexamic acid (1 g) or a placebo at the time of anesthetic induction for PCNL. The primary outcome measure was the occurrence rate of perioperative blood transfusion. Read More

Paravertebral anaesthesia with or without sedation versus general anaesthesia for women undergoing breast cancer surgery.

Cochrane Database Syst Rev 2021 Feb 25;2:CD012968. Epub 2021 Feb 25.

Department of Biostatistics, All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi, India.

Background: Breast cancer is one of the most common cancers among women. Surgical removal of the cancer is the mainstay of treatment; however, tumour handling during surgery can cause microscopic dissemination of tumour cells and disease recurrence. The body's hormonal response to surgery (stress response) and general anaesthesia may suppress immunity, promoting tumour dissemination. Read More
