Answer

Antifibrinolytic agents

Antifibrinolytic agents are important adjuncts in patients undergoing surgery in areas of the body prone to increased fibrinolysis (oral cavity, uterus). These agents may be effective when used alone in patients who have severe factor XI deficiency and who are undergoing dental extractions.

Aminocaproic acid (Amicar)

This agent's antifibrinolytic effects result primarily from the inhibition of plasminogen activators and, to lesser degree, antiplasmin activity.
