Mechanism Of Action
  • Etamsylate acts on the first step of hemostasis by improving platelet adhesiveness and restoring capillary resistance.
  • Etamsylate prevents the break down of the capillary wall by its anti-hyaluronidase activity.
  • Etamsylate inhibits prostacycline synthetase, a powerful vasodilator.
  • Etamsylate augments fibrin formation, by increasing the generation of thromboplastin, and helps in stable fibrin clot formation.
