PostSubject: Clot drug 'could save thousands'   Sun Apr 20, 2008 7:15 pm

Wider use of a new blood-thinning drug to stop clots could save thousands of lives a year, says a charity.
Some hip and knee surgery patients are to start being given Pradaxa, which is available as a daily tablet and needs less monitoring than other drugs.

Lifeblood wants more action to cut the 25,000 deaths related to blood clots each year in English hospitals. It wants all hospitals to improve their risk assessments for blood clots in patients when they are first admitted.

Many patients are at risk from venous thromboembolism, where blood clots form at the site of the surgery and then cause problems when they break up, moving to block blood vessels elsewhere in the body.

Patients known to be at risk will often be given drugs to thin the blood, making clots less likely.
