The article deals with an acute problem of decrease in blood loss during surgical interventions for scoliotic deformities of the vertebral column. The authors performed a comparative study of use of antifibrinolytic agents in two groups of patients. It was found out that the use of tranexamic acid made it possible to reduce intraoperative blood loss by 17.7 % and demand for haemotransfusion by 35.1 % versus those patients, who took aminocapronic acid.
