Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Percentage of Subjects Avoiding Any Allogeneic Transfusions for Seven Days Post-operative or Until Discharge, Whichever Came First [ Time Frame: measured ongoing from dosing until day 7 or discharge, whichever came first ]
    Proportion of patients avoiding blood products given via allogeneic transfusion. Blood products were defined as any of the following: RBC, platelets, FFP, fibrinogen concentrate and clotting factor(s) concentrate, including cryoprecipitate.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Percentage of Subjects With Thromboembolic Events [ Time Frame: measured from screening until 5-7 weeks post Trial Drug Administration ]
    Percentage of subjects with thromboembolic events (AMI, cerebrovascular thromboembolic event, peripheral artery occlusion, DVT, pulmonary embolism) until end of trial

  • Percentage of Subjects With rFXIII Antibody Reaction [ Time Frame: measured from screening until 5-7 weeks post Trial Drug Administration ]
    Immunogenicity as number of subjects who manifested FXIII antibody reaction until end of trial. The percentage may be derived from the number of subjects treated with rFXIII with available antibody measurement at visit 8.

  • Percentage of Subjects With Critical Adverse Events [ Time Frame: measured from screening until 5-7 weeks post Trial Drug Administration ]
    Percentage of subjects with critical adverse events (thromboembolic events (AMI, cerebrovascular thromboembolic event, peripheral artery occlusion, DVT, pulmonary embolism), renal dysfunction, re-operation and death) until end of trial

  • Percentage of Subjects With Serious Adverse Events [ Time Frame: measured from screening until 5-7 weeks post Trial Drug Administration ]
    Percentage of subjects with serious adverse events until end of trial.
