Blood Thinner Doses: Why is it Hard to Get Right After Surgery
Blood thinner doses are hard to get correct for patients. Common blood thinner medications like Warfarin or Coumadin are common, great blood thinners. Warfarin does a good job at preventing blood clots after surgery, which is why you’re on blood thinners after a hip or knee replacement in the first place. The problem with Warfarin or Coumadin is that it can be really finicky and difficult to get the dose right after surgery. Blood thinners interact with a lot of different medications and foods, making it more difficult to find the correct dose for each individual. To help get your blood thinner dose right, a relatively consistent diet is beneficial. Not changing your other list of medications too much after surgery can help stabilize your blood level. Getting your blood thinner dose right can require some adjusting after surgery. Follow-up with your care team after a surgery like a joint replacement if your blood thinner dose is not right for you in your recovery.

Non-Vitamin K Antagonist Oral Anticoagulants
Development of two non-vitamin K antagonist oral anticoagulants occurred to assist with clots. First, a novel once-daily anticoagulant that blocks Factor Xa, which is involved in clotting. The new pill prevents VTE in patients undergoing hip or knee replacement. The second blood-thinning drug is a novel medication called an oral direct thrombin inhibitor (DTI). ➨ Visit Cleveland Clinic: http://bit.ly/XlxDfr ➨ Visit Health Hub from Cleveland Clinic: http://bit.ly/VBQ3nW ➨ Subscribe to our YouTube Channel: http://bit.ly/W0bJ0y ➨ Like Cleveland Clinic on Facebook: http://on.fb.me/WMFkul ➨ Follow Cleveland Clinic on Twitter: http://bit.ly/Uua1Gs ➨ Follow Cleveland Clinic on Google+: http://bit.ly/136vcTe ➨ Follow Cleveland Clinic on Instagram: http://bit.ly/12gMABx ➨ Connect with Cleveland Clinic on LinkedIn: http://linkd.in/120XfNs ➨ Follow Cleveland Clinic on Pinterest: http://bit.ly/11QqS3A

Natural Blood Thinners that Prevent Blood Clots
Natural Blood Thinners that Prevent Blood Clots Doctors prescribe blood thinners for numerous reasons. It might be because you suffer from a heart or cardiovascular disease, an abnormal heart rhythm called atrial fibrillation or a congenital heart defect. Or perhaps you’ve had a heart valve replacement or you’re at risk of blood clots occurring after having surgery. Blood thinners are medicines that prevent blood clots from forming and help blood flow smoothly through your veins and arteries. As the name suggests, these prescribed medicines don’t actually make your blood thinner or break up clots. These medicines help keep your blood from getting thicker and forming new clots. They can also slow the growth of existing ones, thus reducing your risk of dangerous clots. While blood thinners are helpful in many ways, they can also cause side effects in some people. Excessive bleeding is the most common reaction and can occur in several ways, including heavy periods, bloody or discolored urine or feces, nosebleeds, bleeding gums and prolonged bleeding from a cut. A 2014 study published in PLOS ONE found that a blood thinner commonly prescribed to prevent blood clots after a hip or knee replacement is associated with an increased risk of post-surgery bleeding or infection. Some other possible side effects include dizziness, muscle weakness, hair loss and skin rashes. Blood thinners should be taken as suggested by your doctor or it can lead to serious consequences. To be on the safe side and reduce the risk of blood clots, you can always try some foods and herbs that are natural anticoagulants and can help prevent your blood from clotting. Caution: Anticoagulant foods and herbs should not be used as a substitute for prescription anticoagulant medication. In addition, some natural blood-thinning foods and herbs could interact with prescription medicines. Consult your doctor to determine what’s best for you. Here are some of the best natural blood thinners to prevent blood clots. 1. Ginger Ginger is an herb that can effectively help reduce blood clotting. It can also prevent new clots and reduce your risk of a stroke. In addition, it promotes healthy blood circulation throughout the body. 2. Turmeric Turmeric is best known as a natural anti-inflammatory herb, but it also works as a natural blood thinner. This happens mainly due to its curcumin content. Curcumin can help prevent your platelets from clumping together and forming clots. 3. Garlic Garlic is good for your heart health and is even more beneficial if you are at a higher risk of having blood clots. Sulfur-containing compounds like adenosine, allicin and paraffinic polysulfides in garlic act as blood thinners. 4. Cinnamon Cinnamon is another effective natural anticoagulant. It contains coumarin, a chemical that acts as a powerful anticoagulant. This sweet spice is even capable of lowering blood pressure and relieving inflammatory conditions. Cinnamon also reduces the chances of having a stroke. 5. Cayenne Pepper Cayenne pepper has a powerful blood-thinning effect on your body and also increases circulation. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Our Social Links: Subscribe To Our Channel : https://goo.gl/7YPKcz For more tips see our blog: https://naturalhealthcarenhc.blogspot.com like us in Facebook: https://goo.gl/MmjtyD Follow us on twitter: https://goo.gl/USDg3k Google plus: https://goo.gl/B5B2oz Special thanks to: http://www.top10homeremedies.com If you found this information cool, useful or valuable please hit share and let your friends benefit from this as well!

Medicinal Chemistry Case Study| Anticoagulants
This is our video project submission of medicinal chemistry curriculum , presented as a case with 3 anticoagulant choices & conducting a (structure activity relationship) for each drug and then choose the best choice for the patient. KING ABDULAZIZ UNIVERSITY | Faculty of Pharmacy| Jeddah Saudi Arabia. ______________________________________________________________ CASE STUDY: DY is a 78-year-old Asian woman who was admitted to the hospital because she needs to have hip-replacement surgery because she fell in her house recently. Her significant medical history includes chronic renal failure (creatine clearance, 14 mL/min), osteoarthritis, hypertension, and congestive heart failure. Her current medication list includes furosemide 20 mg po daily, spironolactone 12.5 mg po daily, imidapril 2.5 mg po bid, and celecoxib 200 mg po bid. Unfractionated heparin therapy at a subcutaneous dosage of 5,000 units tid was initiated after surgery for deep vein thrombosis prophylaxis. Five days after surgery, DY complained of pain and swelling in her left leg. A compression ultrasound reading demonstrated superficial femoral and popliteal vein thrombosis. A laboratory evaluation for heparin-induced thrombocytopenia (serotonin release assay) was ordered and yielded a positive result. Her physician wants to change her unfractionated heparin to a different anticoagulant and asks your opinion of the choices 1–3. _____________________________________________________ Sources: Foye's principles of medicinal chemistry Wilson and Gisvold's of organic and medicinal chemistry

A 84 year old man with angina, metal mitral valve (on warfarin), total hip replacement and previous heparin induced thrombocytopaenia was diagnosed with left lung cancer 6 years ago. He underwent left lobectomy. Five months ago he was found to have a mass on the right lung which was believed to be a metachronous lung cancer even though it was not possible to take samples at bronchoscopy owing to the risk of bleeding. He was also noted to have a mass on his left adrenal (?mets). He was managed conservatively. He now presents with “a large amount of fresh melaena.” Hb 7.2 g.dl, Urea 7.1, INR 4.1. The warfarin was reversed with Beriplex and he was commenced on s/c Fondaparinux (a synthetic pentasaccharide factor Xa inhibitor). Urgent OGD was normal but a subsequent CT angiogram showed a 4.8cm lesion in the caecum with arterial ring enhancement. A colonoscopy was performed (see video).

Top Developments in Anticoagulant - Anticoagulation in AF  (Heart&Stroke Clinical Update)
Heart & Stroke Clinical Update 2015 www.heartandstroke.ca/clinicalupdate Plenary 3c Top Developments in Anticoagulant - Oral Anticoagulation for AF-related Stroke Prevention Presented by: Andrew Ha, MD, FRCPC (see below) Hilton Toronto, December 2015 Learning Objectives 1. Review common stroke and bleeding assessment schema for patients with atrial fibrillation (AF). 2. Review randomozed controlled trials comparing the efficacy and safety of warfarin versus noval oral anticoagulants (NOAC). 3. Discussion of “real-world” observational studies on the use of warfarin and NOAC agents. 4. Review the safety and effectiveness of oral anticoagulation in high-risk patient subgroups (e.g. chronic kidney disease). 5. Reversal agents for NOACs Session Description Stroke prevention with oral anticoagulation (OAC) is one of the most important treatment goals in the management of patients with atrial fibrillation (AF). Traditionally, warfarin is the drug of choice for AF-related stroke prevention. Recently, the introduction of novel oral anticoagulant (NOAC) agents has revolutionized this field. As a consequence of the rapid uptake of NOAC agents in clinical practice, health practitioners now face many new questions when prescribing OAC for AF patients with elevated stroke risk. For instance, there is a pressing need to develop a greater understanding of the “real-world” effectiveness and safety between warfarin and NOAC agents. In addition, further delineation of the risks and benefits of warfarin vs. NOAC agents in high-risk AF patient subgroups (e.g. elderly, patients with kidney disease, patients treated with antiplatelet therapy) will be most welcomed. In this session, we will examine data from randomized clinical trials, “real-world” registries, and large-scale health administrative databases to address these keys questions on OAC use for AF-related stroke prevention.

Deep Vein Thrombosis. DVT, PE - Everything You Need To Know - Dr. Nabil Ebraheim
Dr. Ebraheim’s educational animated video describes the conditions of Deep Venous Thrombosis (DVT) and Pulmonary Embolism (PE). What is deep vein thrombosis (DVT)? DVT is the formation of a blood clot (thrombus) within a deep vein. The deep veins pass through the deep tissues and the muscles. Muscle contractions (walking, running, activity, etc.) squeeze blood through the deep veins to the heart. The deep veins have valves which prevent the blood from flowing back to the ankles and feet. When a blood clot is formed, the majority of blood clots are small and they are usually broken down or dissolved. Large clots may form and can block the vein causing the patient to complain of pain and swelling. Homan’s sign is not very specific. High index of suspicion is necessary for the diagnosis. Virchow’s Triad contributes to the development of dep venous thrombosis. There are several risk factors for DVT: •The most important risk factor for DVT is history of previous DVT •Tumor (malignancy) – up to 20% •Oral contraceptive therapy •Aging •Obesity •Smoking •The Virchow’s Triad: o Venous Stasis •Intimal injury o Due to trauma, fracture dislocation or can result from surgery o Surgery itself is a risk factor because of the use of general anesthesia and the stress due to the surgery. •Hypercoagulable state o Could be inherited genetics o Factor V leiden o Protein S deficiency o Protein C deficiency •Increased blood viscosity + immobilization + an intimal tear from trauma or surgery may lead to DVT. Once the condition is suspected, venous Doppler ultrasound examination is ordered to confirm the diagnosis. If the study is positive and the clot is above the knee, then the DVT is usually treated with IV heparin therapy followed by long term Coumadin therapy. Occasionally a vena cava filter is used. Where does deep vein thrombosis (DVT) come from? Deep venous thrombosis (DVT) predominantly occurs within the deep veins of the legs above the knee. It may also occur in the upper extremities. What conditions can cause DVT? •Spinal cord injury •Total knee replacement o More DVT, less PE than total hip replacement •Polytrauma patients •Hip fractures •Total hip replacement o Will see less DVT and more PE than total knee replacement surgery Prophylaxis for DVT (Chemical/Mechanical Prophylaxis •Chemical methods will include anticoagulants such as aspirin, Lovenox, Coumadin, Heparin and others •Each of these has their advantages and disadvantages •Lovenox decreases the incidence of DVT, but does not decrease the rate of death from PE. •None of the anticoagulation agents including Lovenox provide absolute protection against deep venous thrombosis or pulmonary embolism. •Both the chest surgeons and orthopaedic surgeons organizational guidelines are related to total joint arthroplasty and hip fractures. •Currently there are no guidelines for prophylaxis in trauma patients. •When giving prophylaxis, you weigh the risk of complication such as bleeding versus the benefit of preventing DVT. •Mechanical prophylaxis should be used more often in the majority of patients or in all patients who need prophylaxis. •Mechanical compression increases the venous return and the endothelial-derived fibrinolysis. What is a pulmonary embolism? A pulmonary embolism is blockage of the pulmonary arteries in the lungs that can lead to death. Usually the pulmonary embolus can become lodged within the upper or lower portion of either one of the lungs. It is possible for the blood clot to become lodged in the middle where the pulmonary artery branches. The incidence of pulmonary embolism occurs in about 700,000 patients per year. Early diagnosis and treatment are the most important factors for survival of the patient. According to the AAOS, the rate of DVT does not correlate with PE. DVT and PE can develop independently of each other and they are a part of the hypercoagulable state. One does not need to have a DVT in order to develop a PE. The origin of PE is debatable. One opinion is that when a blood clot breaks off, it may travel to the heart. If a blood clot becomes lodged in the pulmonary arteries of the lung, this may be fatal. A blood clot may occur in the pulmonary artery itself, not originating from the leg. Pulmonary embolism should be suspected in patients postoperatively with: • Acute chest pain • Tachypnea • Tachycardia • Syncope • Seizures Diagnosis is done with ventilation-perfusion (VQ) scan and helical chest CT scan. Treatment is done with IV heparin followed by Coumadin. Occasionally a vena cava filter is used.

The blood thinning medication Eliquis has been linked to uncontrolled bleeding events, but with no antidote. Learn about what severe side effects are possible, and what steps to take if your doctor has recommended that you take Eliquis. For more information, visit our website at http://www.lawmed.com/. And don't forget to watch our other videos at http://www.youtube.com/hensonfuerst/. (Principal office of Henson & Fuerst, PA: 2501 Blue Ridge Road, Raleigh, NC 27607) I’m David Henson, a partner with HensonFuerst Attorneys. I want to talk with you today about one of the newest blood thinning medications, Eliquis, which is being marketed as an alternative to warfarin (or Coumadin), which has been around for decades. However, warnings about Eliquis are similar to those made against two other blood thinning medications: Xarelto, and Pradaxa, which recently announced a $650 million dollar settlement for patients who were injured by that medication. First, a little background: Eliquis can be prescribed for a number of conditions, but the most common is to reduce the risk of blood clot injuries, such as stroke, deep vein thrombosis (DVT), or pulmonary embolism (PE). In particular, it has been given to patients with Atrial Fibrillation, and those who are recovering after knee and hip replacement surgery. The problem is that Eliquis has been linked to serious internal bleeding, which could lead to injury or death. And once bleeding starts, there is no antidote—no way to stop the bleeding. So, what does this mean for you? If a doctor offers to prescribe Eliquis, or if you are currently taking the medication, ask about these reports of serious bleeding, how the increased risk may affect you, and whether Eliquis is, indeed, the best option for you. In addition, I would also ask if there are other options available that will help you, WITHOUT the risk of uncontrollable bleeding. If you believe that taking Eliquis has led to gastrointestinal bleeding, hemorrhagic shock, bleeding on the brain, severe bleeding requiring a hospital stay, or death…for you or a loved one, call HensonFuerst Attorneys for important information about your rights. You may be able to collect compensation for the injury or death caused by Eliquis. One final piece of free legal advice: DO NOT contact the manufacturers—including Bristol-Myers Squibb, or Pfizer…and DO NOT SIGN ANY RELEASES OF YOUR MEDICAL RECORDS to any company before you talk with a lawyer. Let a lawyer handle everything. Big corporations look out for their own financial interests, not the interests of people who may have been harmed. If you have questions regarding your legal rights, then give me a call at 1-800-4-LAWMED. Or, visit our website at lawmed.com for more information. Life Doesn’t Wait…get help today.

Xarelto a Medication Used to Prevent Blood Clots and Stroke - Overview
http://www.rxwiki.com/xarelto Ask a pharmacist your questions now! http://www.rxwiki.com/askrx/questions Xarelto is a prescription medication used to prevent certain types of blood clots and strokes. Xarelto can be used in people who are having hip or knee replacement surgery, and for people with an irregular heart rhythm. Xarelto, a "blood thinner", belongs to a group of drugs called factor Xa inhibitors. Factor Xa is an enzyme required for blood to clot. Xarelto inhibits factor Xa, slowing down blood clot formation. This medication comes in tablet form and is usually taken once daily, with or without food. For people taking it for atrial fibrillation (irregular heart rhythm), Xarelto is taken once daily with the evening meal. Common side effects include itching, muscle spasms, and bleeding.

It is commonly used to prevent or treat a type of blood clot called a deep vein thrombosis, or DVT. These DVT clots often occur after certain types of surgery, such as a knee or hip replacement. They are dangerous because they can travel up to the lungs and cause a pulmonary embolism, which can lead to death. Xarelto is also prescribed to patients with a heart rhythm disorder called atrial fibrillation in order to lower the risk of stroke caused by a blood clot. Xarelto has a higher risk associated with the fact that their is not a reversing agent from other drugs that can prevent more blood loss.

*Don't take this you have a history of problems with your spine or have had surgery on your spine. Causing hematoma (spinal or epidural blood clots).* Me: EXCUSE ME, WTF?! About Apixaban: It's used to prevent serious blood clots from forming due to a certain irregular heartbeat (atrial fibrillation) or after hip/knee replacement surgery. With atrial fibrillation, part of the heart does not beat the way it should. This can lead to blood clots forming, which can travel to other parts of your body (such as the lungs or legs) or increase your risk for stroke. In the United States, it's also approved to treat certain types of blood clots (deep vein thrombosis-DVT, pulmonary embolus-PE) and to prevent them from forming again. It's an anticoagulant that works by blocking certain clotting proteins in your blood. I DO NOT OWN THIS. ALL RIGHTS TO Bristol-Myers Squibb AND Pfizer.

Pradaxa is a drug used to prevent the formation of blood clots within the body. Drugs like Pradaxa are known as anticoagulants or "blood thinners." Pradaxa is a relatively new drug on the market that was hoped to be an improvement over other anticoagulants. The drug received initial U.S. approval in October 2010. It is registered to the manufacturer Boehringer-Ingelheim. Pradaxa was approved for the prevention of strokes in patients with non-valvular atrial fibrillation. There has been concern of late about the safety of Pradaxa given reports of fatal bleeding among some users. Pradaxa is used for preventing blood clot formation which is more likely to arise in patients with atrial fibrillation and result in a stroke. Abnormal blood clot formation can occur anywhere in the body but is most dangerous when it arises within blood vessels that supply blood to the heart and brain, leading to a heart attack or stroke respectively. Sometimes Pradaxa is prescribed after major surgery, like following hip or knee replacement surgery. It can prevent blood clots from forming in the legs or lungs which can have very serious consequences in some people. Why is Pradaxa a threat? Although Pradaxa was hoped to be an improvement from other anticoagulants, the safety of Pradaxa has been brought into question recently after it was revealed that the drug could cause fatal bleeding. The FDA is currently evaluating data to ascertain the risk of fatal bleeding associated with using Pradaxa. What are my options If you have been affected by the side effects of Pradaxa, do not hesitate to contact our firm for legal advice.

What You Should Know About Xarelto Litigation
For More Information: https://www.justiceislovely.com/myrtle-beach-xarelto-lawsuits/ The Lovely Law Firm represents injured victims in their personal injury cases. The firm also handles criminal defense cases in South Carolina. From The Video: Myrtle Beach Xarelto Lawsuits Myrtle Beach Xarelto lawsuits are being filed everyday. Xarelto (rivaroxaban) is one of the newest blood thinners on the market today and was marketed as a better alternative to Coumadin (warfarin), which has been used for blood clots for half a century. Xarelto is commonly prescribed for individuals who have had a knee or hip replacement, as well as those with deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary embolism, and possibility of stroke due to atrial fibrillation. The most severe side effect of Xarelto is uncontrolled bleeding. While uncontrolled bleeding is a possible side effect of any blood thinner, bleeding resulting from Xarelto usage is particularly dangerous because there is no antidote to reverse the bleeding. For some patients, this bleeding can prove fatal. Other side effects can include: • Gastrointestinal bleeding • Brain bleeding • Subdural hematoma • Heart attack • Stroke • Muscle pain • Liver issues Due to the large number of claims initiated against Johnson & Johnson, Xarelto cases were consolidated into a multi-district litigation (MDL) No. As with any case, settlement is a possibility in the Xarelto litigation. If you or a loved one have experienced complications following the use of the prescription drug Xarelto, the Mass Tort Team at the Lovely Law Firm is here to help you obtain the compensation you deserve.

Blood Clots,Recognize,Symptoms, What to Expect-Clip 1
Learn how to recognize Deep vein and Superficial vein thrombosis and what to expect.BLOOD CLOTS -- HOW TO RECOGNIZE 1)Superficial-reddness, mild burning if along the Saphenous vein. Other surface veins may have a visible or palpable lump usually feels like a hard cord or pencil under the skin. Could continue into a DVT You can expect to be put on coumadin and will have only minor impairment if at all. It can be deceptively symptom free until the entire Saphenous vein becomes like a cord most of the way from your thigh down to the ankle. You most likely will not experience any leg swelling but you should see the vein become more prominent and then become hardened. 2)Deep vein-If in calf, dorsa flex the foot. If sharp pain then suspect thrombosis. 3)Deep vein- If between the thigh and knee-Femoral vein Can be difficult to detect at first because it tends to become established before symptoms develop. Symptoms may present as a lower muscle pain or pulled groin muscle. Further these pains may not always be present. They can be intermittent at first misleading you into thinking it's just a pulled muscle.Experience feelings of fluid build up upon standing and weakness in Quads at first . Later a feeling of dizzyness AFTER mild exertion. A craving for sweets for energy. DO NOT attempt to treat with anti-inflammatory NSAIDs like Aleve or Ibuprofen. Tylenol okay to use. Take a couple of aspirin a day until you have a chance to get to a doctor's offc. Do the pinch test to see if you are dehydrated...if skin does not snap back immediately start drinking fluids now. One you first feeling fluid building up and/or dizzyness upon standing you are probably within three days of requiring admission to the ER at the hospital. You will know you have reached a critical stage when your thigh muscles become weak, feel more and more pressure each time you stand and you feel dizzy after walking just a few yards. At this point you must go to the ER but try to have a bowel movement and pee before you go....you probably won't be able to for the next week or so. Just the physical swelling will cause that.DO THESE THINGS RIGHT NOW (TODAY) BEFORE GOING TO THE HOSPITAL FIRST THING: Laxative-If you even think you may have a thrombosis-Start immediately on either All-Bran cereal or Mira-Lax with each meal SECOND THING: Plan ahead-Transport (911=$900)/meals, grocery shopping, business now SECOND THING: Buy a pair of thigh high compression stockings 20-30mm Hg-no Rx nec. WHAT TO EXPECT: At the ER they will put an IV line in you to keep fluids going into your body. Your leg diameter will continue to swell for the next few days. Be sure you ask for a doppler to confirm thrombosis. Your pain levels will increase...you won't be able to walk but a few meters without passing out from orthostatic hypotension. If you are on diuretics for BP CONTINUE THEM. ASK THE HOSPITAL DOC (DAY 1) IF YOU CAN HAVE SOMEONE BRING YOU 20-30 mm thigh high COMPRESSION STOCKINGS FOR IMMEDIATE USE. You will need measurements of your ankle, calf, and thigh at the widest part. You will only use these until about two or three weeks after you get home then order some stockings at 30-40mm for the next 4-6weeks and then go to 40-50mm. As soon as you can (when the 30-40mm began to stretch and lose compression.The hospital may give you some short knee high compression socks which are useless and just slow your progress or they may use a machine with a pressure cuff to stimulate circulation---they usually don't get the cuff adjusted tight enough to do any good....take some control here and do it yourself. Each day, Ask your hospital doc if your vital signs have returned to normal (such as kidney function). If so then don't let the hospital keep putting IV fluid into your body...that just makes your leg feel like it is going to burst plus it makes it almost physically impossible for you to use the toilet in your room no matter where it is. They will argue the IV is for your benefit. Tolerate what you can but take control. You will also feel your upper body begin to retain fluid as well. This will also make going to the toilet a lot more difficult. Until you can get the fluid in your body down (ask doc to use lasix for that) you will be in great pain and pretty immobile and severely constipated and unable to pee. You will be put on Coumadin or Warfarin accompanied with a few shots of Lovenox injections for about ten days. The Coumadin you may be on forever. You will also be given medication for pain.

Important warnings about the blood thinning drug called Xarelto, which has been linked to serious bleeding injury. For more information, visit our website at http://www.lawmed.com/. And don't forget to watch our other videos at http://www.youtube.com/hensonfuerst/. (Principal office of Henson & Fuerst, PA: 2501 Blue Ridge Road, Raleigh, NC 27607) I’m David Henson, a partner with HensonFuerst Attorneys. I want to talk with you today about the popular blood thinning medicine Xarelto, which has been marketed as a safer alternative to the old-line drug Coumadin (or the generic warfarin), which has been around for decades. Claims raised against Xarelto are similar to many of the allegations made against another blood thinning medicine called Pradaxa, which recently announced a $650 million dollar settlement for patients who were injured by that medication. First, a little background: Xarelto can be prescribed for a number of conditions, but the most common is to reduce the risk of blood clot injuries, such as stroke, deep vein thrombosis (DVT), or pulmonary embolism (PE). In particular, it has been given to patients with Atrial Fibrillation, and those who are recovering after knee and hip replacement surgery. The problem is that Xarelto may be linked to significant bleeding, which could lead to serious injury or death. In fact, one study found that Xarelto doubled or even tripled the risk of severe bleeding in people with acute coronary syndrome, undergo hip surgery, or who take blood thinners while acutely ill. Once bleeding starts, there is no counteractive drug that can be given to stop it. So, what do you need to remember about Xarelto? First, if a doctor offers to prescribe Xarelto, or if you are currently taking the medication, ask about these reports of serious bleeding, how the increased risk may affect you, and whether Xarelto is, indeed, the best option for you. In addition, I would also ask if there are other options available that will help you, WITHOUT these potential side effects. Call HensonFuerst Attorneys for important information about your rights if you or a loved one has taken Xarelto and suffered any of the following: Gastrointestinal bleeding, Hemorrhagic shock, Intracranial bleeding, Severe bleeding requiring a hospital stay, or Death caused by any of these conditions. You may have a legal case and be able to collect compensation for the injury caused by Xarelto. One final piece of free legal advice: DO NOT contact the manufacturers—including Johnson & Johnson, Bayer, or Janssen Pharmaceuticals…and DO NOT SIGN ANY RELEASES OF YOUR MEDICAL RECORDS to any company before you talk with a lawyer. Let a lawyer handle everything. Many times, big corporations look out for their own financial interests, not the interests of people who may have been harmed. If you have questions regarding your legal rights, then give me a call at 1-800-4-LAW-MED. Or, visit our website at www.lawmed.com/ for more information. Life Doesn’t Wait…get help today.

Xalreto's Dangerous Side Effects
Xarelto is a prescription medication used to prevent blood clots from forming as the result of an irregular heartbeat/atrial fibrillation. Also called Rivaroxaban, the drug is commonly given after hip or knee replacement surgery. Patients with other types of blood clots including deep vein thrombosis (DVT) or pulmonary embolus (PE) may be given Xarelto along with those who need to prevent past blood clots from forming again. The drug is considered an anticoagulant and works by blocking specific clotting proteins in the patient’s blood.

Xarelto 101 The Facts About This Potentially Dangerous Drug
Experienced personal injury attorney, Marc Whitehead, discusses the facts about the medication Xarelto, the drugs potentially dangerous side effects, and the resources available to those who may have been harmed by the use of Xarelto. Invented and manufactured by the pharmaceutical giant Bear, Xarelto is an oral anti-coagulant designed to prevent blood clots by preventing factor XA. It's marketed by Johnson pharmaceutical as Xarelto and is the first oral active direct factor XA inhibitor. On July 1st 2011 the FDA approved the use of Xarelto for adults having knee or hip replacement surgery. Researchers quickly discovered one of the most serious adverse side effects of Xarelto was internal bleeding. Although this is a common side effect of anit-coagulant medications, Xarelto poses a more serious threat because there is no current antidote to reverse the blood thinning effects. In an emergency situation patients can be at risk of irreversible bleeding complications that can be life threatening. According to a document compiled by the Institute for Safe Medication Practices 356 reports of serious disabling or fatal injuries reported as a result of Xarelto were filed to the FDA in the first quarter of 2012 alone. In an ironic twist the same document noted that one of the most common side effects of Xarelto was blockage problem that the medication was actually designed to treat and prevent. Most of the patients that suffered from this blockage had only taken this medication for a short period- Post surgery treatment. Although the exact number of lawsuits filed against Johnson and Johnson pharmaceutical and Bear health care is unknown the charges raise include the following: - Johnson and Bear failed to properly warn patients of the risks and potentially life threatening internal bleeding when taking Xarelto. -The makers of Xarelto did not advise Medical professionals of how to act to stabilize patients in the event of bleeding. -Johnson and Bear marketed the medication as a superior alternative to walfarin- despite having knowledge that Xarelto had more frequent instances of internal bleeding and transfusions then is competitors. -The manufacturers exhibited a bias for maximizing profits instead of minimizing the dangerous effect of the drug. For more information regarding the harm of Xarelto and its use, visit www.usacivialaction.com OR Download a free copy of our E-Book The Xarelto Disaster: How Johnson and Johnson failed to warn consumers of deadly internal bleeding risks Or call us at 1-855-423-3666 to discuss your particular issue with Xarelto.

Xarelto (Rivaroxaban) Anticoagulant Blood Thinners Dangers
Video Transcript: Hello, I’m attorney Rosemarie Bogdan. I’d like to tell you about a blood thinner named Xarelto. Xarelto is a prescription medicine used to reduce the risk of stroke and blood clots. It is widely prescribed to prevent blood clots in patients suffering from atrial fibrillation or A-fib which is an irregular heartbeat; to prevent deep vein thrombosis also known as DVT; to prevent pulmonary embolism which is a blood clot in the lungs; to prevent stroke and for patients who have recently undergone a knee or hip replacement surgery. So what are the side effects, complications and risks of Xarelto? The most serious risk and complication caused by Xarelto is severe internal bleeding. This bleeding can take many forms. It could be a brain hemorrhage. It could be gastrointestinal. It could be rectal. It could be urinary. It could be a hematoma. Most importantly when this bleeding occurs, unlike other blood thinners, there is no known cure to reverse the type of internal bleeding caused by Xarelto. Essentially, there is no antidote for this blood thinner.   If you have been prescribed the blood thinner Xarelto and experienced internal bleeding which required medical attention, you may have a compensable claim.

Xarelto: What are the dangers of Xarelto?
If you or a family member has taken the prescription drug Xarelto, I encourage you to please pay close attention to this legal update. Xarelto is a prescription drug that has been widely prescribed to prevent blood clots in patients that have suffered from: * Atrial Fibrillation (an irregular heartbeat) * Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT); these are blood clots that form deep within the body * Pulmonary Embolism (blood clots in the lungs) * Stroke * and for patients who have recently undergone knee or hip replacement surgery. Blood thinners are prescribed by doctors to help prevent dangerous blood clots from forming. If a clot does form, it could potentially obstruct blood flow to the brain or other organs. The consequences could be deadly. Xarelto has been marketed as a safe alternative to Warfarin - with the brand name Coumadin - because it does not require periodic monitoring and it doesn’t limit the patient’s diet. However, the Food & Drug Administration (the FDA), has issued warnings linking Xarelto to an increased risk of blood clots. Lawsuits have been filed against the manufacturer of Xarelto alleging the company: * failed to warn patients and their doctors of the increased risk of fatal bleeding; * if they had warned them of the risks, then patients would have been prescribed another blood thinner instead; * these complaints also allege that Xarelto is more dangerous than other blood thinners because NO antidote exists to reverse its blood thinning effects. So if you or a family member were injured while taking Xarelto, please do not delay in seeking a review of your legal rights. For more information, please go to http://www.GaryMartinHays.com.

Xarelto® Blood Clot Drug Can Lead to Bleeding and Death
Were you prescribed Xarelto® following knee or hip replacement surgery? Did you experience uncontrollable bleeding as you recovered? If so, there is probably a connection and you may be entitled to a settlement from the drug manufacturer. Prescribed to prevent blood clots in patients who had undergone a knee or hip replacement procedure, the anti-coagulant drug Xarelto soon proved to do more harm than good. In many patients, the drug led to uncontrollable bleeding, brain hemorrhage, thrombosis, peripheral edema, and dyspnea. While there is always a risk of bleeding when a patient takes a blood thinner, traditional blood thinners have a way to reverse the effects with an antidote of sorts. For example, effects of the blood thinner Warfarin can be reversed with a dose of vitamin K. However, there is no such antidote for Xarelto, so when a patient starts bleeding, nothing can be done to stop it. Patients who have successfully sued the drugmaker and distributors of Xarelto have been able to prove that the parties failed to warn patients of the possible side effects and engaged in unethical marketing practices in convincing patients to use Xarelto instead of the alternatives. Our experienced dangerous drug attorneys have successfully won millions of dollars for our clients and we can do the same for you. Call us today. http://www.mcgartland.com/

Orthopaedic Surgery - a Significant Risk for Venous Thromboembolism
Orthopaedic surgery carries a high risk of venous thromboembolism, meeting all three criteria in Virchow's Triad. The surgery itself triggers a hypercoagulable state, and results in vascular wall injury, while anaesthesia and post-operative reduced mobility can cause circulatory stasis. In the absence of appropriate prophylaxis, hip or knee replacement surgery carries a particularly high risk of venous thromboembolism. This can be up to 85% for deep vein thrombosis in total knee replacement patients and up to 28% for pulmonary embolism in total hip replacement patients. References: 1.
