Editor-In-Chief: C. Michael Gibson, M.S., M.D. [1]

Antifibrinolytics, such as aminocaproic acid (ε-aminocaproic acid) and tranexamic acid are used as inhibitors of fibrinolysis, which act by blocking the lysine-binding site on plasmin.

Tranexamic acid may reduce bleeding after orthopedic surgery[1]. Tranexamic acid may better than aminocaproic acid for reducing estimated blood loss in orthopedic surgery[2].

Tranexamic acid may reduce bleeding after trauma[3].

They are used in menorrhagia and bleeding tendency due to various causes.
