[Study of the platelet aggregation inhibitor MICRISTIN as to its efficacy in the prevention of thromboembolism in the postoperative phase following surgical interventions].

[Article in German]


Clinical test of the acetylsalicylic acid preparation micristin concerning effect and side-effect on the postoperative rate of thromboembolism in general surgery and traumatology. Prospective, randomized, checked double-blind study in 802 operated patients: 401 patients with micristin and 401 patients with placebo. Objectivization of findings in highly endangered patients by the radiofibrinogen test, ultrasonic doubler, venography of contrast medium, section. In total there were 149 thromboembolic complications = 18.6%. The placebo control group (401 patients) had 52 ensured deep venothrombosises and 8 fatal pulmonary embolisms. The group with micristin treatment (401 patients) had 23 ensured deep venothrombosises and 4 fatal pulmonary embolisms. Significant decrease of the thromboembolism rate by micristin (p = 0.001). Failures concerning the effect of micristin included fractures near the hip. Favourable effects concerned intra-abdominal surgery. Frequent side-effect: increased intra-operative and postoperative bleeding tendency.
