Layout table for study information
Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Actual Enrollment : 92 participants
Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Intervention Model Description: Two study groups will be generated, each consisting of 40 research subjects, randomly each recipient will receive 3 doses of one of the two study drugs (tranexamic acid or aminocaproic acid). The group to which the patient belongs will be assigned through a computer program, the patient will not know to which group he belongs or what medication he will receive. The patients will be extracted from the external traumatology clinic.
Masking: Single (Participant)
Masking Description: Prior to being included in the study, the patient will be mentioned the times when he will receive the medication as well as the dosage of administration (which is the same for each of the two medications). The patient will not know what medication is being administered to him / her. no time The pills will be given to you in a medicine cup without access to any information legend.
Primary Purpose: Prevention

Arm Intervention/treatment
Active Comparator: Oral Tranexamic Acid

Tranexamic acid will be administered orally three times (administering 2 tablets each time). In the case of tranexamic acid tablets are 650 mg each.

The first administration will be two hours before the induction of anesthesia, the second 6 hours post-surgery and the third 12 hours after surgery. All by oral administration with a drink of water. The medicines will be administered with a volume of 40 ml of water.

For the tranexamic acid a total dose of 3.9 grams (6 tablets) divided between the 3 administrations (1.3 grams each, ie 2 tablets of 650 mg) will be administered.

Drug: Oral Tranexamic Acid
Patients undergoing total knee replacement who will receive three doses of tranexamic acid administered orally (1 prior to surgery and 2 subsequent to surgery).

Experimental: Oral Aminocaproic Acid

Aminocaproic acid will be administered orally three times (administering 2 tablets each time). In the case of aminocaproic acid tablets are 500 mg each.

The first administration will be two hours before the induction of anesthesia, the second 6 hours post-surgery and the third 12 hours after surgery. All by oral administration with a drink of water. The medicines will be administered with a volume of 40 ml of water.

For the aminocaproic acid, a total dose of 3 grams (6 tablets) divided between the 3 administrations (1 gram each, ie 2 tablets of 500 mg) will be administered.

Drug: Oral Aminocaproic Acid
Patients undergoing total knee replacement who will receive three doses of aminocaproic acid administered orally (1 prior to surgery and 2 subsequent to surgery).
Other Name: Amicar




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Total blood loss (TBL) [ Time Frame: The third day postoperative,at the time of obtaining the result of the hematocrit of 72 hours. ]
    Total blood loss 72 hours after surgery,The Gross and Nadler formula was used to calculate TBL. TBL = patient's blood volume (PBV) x (Hctpre − Hctpost)/Hctave (Hctpre = the initial pre-operative Hct level, Hctpost = the Hct on the morning of POD3). PBV = k1 x height (m) + k2 x weight (kg) + k3 (k1 = 0.3669, k2 = 0.03219, and k3 = 0.6041 for men; and k1 = 0.3561, k2 = 0.03308, and k3 = 0.1833 for women, Hctave = the average of the Hctpre and Hctpost)

  2. External blood loss (EBL) [ Time Frame: On the second postoperative day (48 hours), when removing the surgical drainage. ]
    External blood loss (EBL) was estimated by adding the intraoperative bleeding and the blood in the drain collectors upon removal after 48 hours

  3. Hidden blood loss (HBL) [ Time Frame: The third day postoperative ]
    was defined as Total blood loss minus External blood loss


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Chage in Hematocrit level [ Time Frame: Hematocrit levels will be measured at 24, 48 and 72 hours postsurgery ]
    Hematocrit levels obtained in 3 samples taken at different times postsurgery

  2. Drainage quantification [ Time Frame: Drainage quantification will be registered at 24 and 48 hours postsurgery ]
    Drainage will be quantified in ml at 2 different times postsurgery

  3. Therapeutic effect on visual analog scale [ Time Frame: The third day postoperative ]
    The pain Visual Analog Scale is a unidimensional measure of pain intensity. The scale is most commonly anchored by "no pain " (score of 0) and "pain as bad as it could be" or "worst imaginable pain" (scale of 10). It will be assessed as a numeric scale from 0 to 10.

  4. Change in Hemoglobin level [ Time Frame: Hemoglobin levels will be measured at 24, 48 and 72 hours postsurgery ]
    Hemoglobin levels obtained in 3 samples taken at different times postsurgery

  5. Complications [ Time Frame: at 24, 48 and 72 hours, 7 days, 4 and 6 weeks. ]
    Complications related to the surgery or to the administration of the study medication

  6. Transfusion rate [ Time Frame: at 24, 48 and 72 hours, 7 days, 4 and 6 weeks. ]
    Need to administer globular packages following the indications of transfusion haemaglobin (Hb) of 8 g/dl in patients free of cardiovascular disease and Hb of 9 g/dl in patients with established cardiovascular disease or cardiovascular risk factors with symptoms of anaemia (defined as bad mental status, palpitation, or shortness of breath not due to othercauses). Hb below 10 g/dl in patients with poor clinical tolerance of lower values was also an indication for transfusion. Symptoms of poor clinical tolerance of lower values were signs of hypoxia such as tachycardia, dyspnoea or syncope or drainage of more than 1 l of blood in the first 24 hours.

  7. Intraoperative blood loss [ Time Frame: Immediately after the end of the surgery ]
    Intra-operative blood loss was calculated using the difference between the weights of the used gauze and the original unused gauze (25 cm x 25 cm, monolayer, weight of 30 grams), in addition to the blood volume accumulated in suction bottles subtracting the volume of saline solution during the surgery
