Abstract

Tranexamic acid (TXA) is increasing in use in the Emergency Department (ED). While its topical uses have largely been observed in the management of epistaxis, other applications are utilized. We present a case of an 84 year old male with a bleeding arteriovenous fistula, responsive to topical application of tranexamic acid. This case report demonstrates another novel application of TXA in emergency care.
