Trasylol (aprotinin), manufactured by Bayer, is a medication used to treat excessive bleeding and inflammation in patients undergoing coronary artery bypass grafting surgery (CABG).

That practice however is slowly changing as the FDA and the New England Journal of Medicine have recently linked Trasylol to renal failure, heart attacks, and strokes.
