Paradoxical Embolism

When a woman uses the birth control medications Yaz, Yasmin, or Ocella, it drastically increases the likelihood that she will develop a life-threatening blood clot. Blood clots often build up in the legs, moving through the rest of the body if they dislodge from their original blood vessel. When a blood clot passes through the body, it may become lodged in the heart. However, in some cases, the blood clot may move out of a vein, through the heart, and potentially lodge in an artery.

If you have suffered a complication related to a blood clot after taking Yaz, Yasmin, or Ocella, contact a Yasmin lawyer of Williams Kherkher at 800-761-3187 today.

Serious Complications of Paradoxical Embolism

When a blood clot is originally formed in a vein, but eventually lodges in an artery, it is known as a paradoxical embolism. Normally, these two types of blood vessels do not run into each other. However, if the clot moves through particular openings in the heart, it may divert into a different kind of blood vessel. The following may arise because of a paradoxical embolism:

  • Tissue death
  • Loss of blood circulation
  • Heart attack
  • Stroke

These health concerns can have potentially fatal consequences in the most serious cases. In minor incidents, a person may be able to treat an embolism with medication that breaks apart the clot.
