Answer

Hemostatic Agents

These agents are potent inhibitors of fibrinolysis and can reverse states that are associated with excessive fibrinolysis.

Desmopressin acetate (DDAVP, Stimate, DDAVP injection)

Desmopressin acetate is a synthetic analogue of the natural pituitary hormone 8-arginine vasopressin (ADH), an antidiuretic hormone affecting renal water conservation. It is indicated for patients with hemophilia A and mild von Willebrand disease to maintain hemostasis. If used preoperatively, administer 30 minutes prior to the scheduled procedure.
