Sytraxis a combination of etamsylate and tranexamic acid.
Etamsylate is a haemostatic drug and is work by increasing capillary endometrial resistance and promoting platelet adhesion.
Tranexamic acid is a synthetic analog of lysine amino acid. It is used to prevent excessive loss of blood during surgery and in various types of disorder and surgery. It is an anti-fibrinolytic which inhibits the activation of plasminogen to plasmin.
- Prevention of excessive bleeding
- Reduces the requirement of blood clotting factor tansfusion during operation
- It is antifibrinolytic agent
- Blocks the breakdown of blood clot
Mechanism of action
It completely inhibits the activation of plasminogen which causes reduction in the conversion of plasminogen to plasmin. It also inhibits plasmin activity.
It is a haemostatic agent, which promotes angioprotective and proaggregant action. It also stimulates thrombopoiesis and its release from the bone marrow. The drug produces haemostaticaction due to activation of thromoblastin formation on the small damaged blood vessels and decreased PgI2 synthesis. It reduces the bleeding time and blood loss from the wound healing.
