Case description

Pooled data suggest that the use of TXA in shoulder arthroscopy does reduce postoperative shoulder pain and has a positive effect on decreasing operative time. However, the reduction in pain may not be clinically significant, and there is no effect on reducing shoulder swelling. The impact of TXA on visual clarity remains inconclusive, and further research is needed using methodologically rigorous articles that incorporate objective measures and controlled factors to eliminate subjective bias.
