FDA approves Xarelto to treat and reduce DVT, PE

Posted on November 6th, 2012 No Comments

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration expanded Johnson & Johnson’s Xarelto drug to also include treating and reducing the risk of deep-vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism. Xarelto is currently used to reduce the risk of blood clots and strokes.

The expansion of the drug makes Xarelto the first oral, anti-clotting drug to reduce and treat blood clots since the drug warfarin was approved almost six decades ago. Both Johnson & Johnson and Bayer market the medication, according to the Washington Post.

Deep-vein thrombosis is a blood clot that forms in one of the body’s deep, large veins–usually in the legs. These blood clots can detach and travel throughout the body, making it potentially deadly if it enters the heart or lungs. It is called a pulmonary embolism when the clot is lodged near the lungs.

If you or someone you love has suffered from deep-vein thrombosis or a pulmonary embolism caused by the birth control pills Yaz or Yasmin, contact the birth control lawsuit attorneys of Williams Kherkher at 800-761-3187.

Deep vein thrombosis risk may be higher in people with sleep apnea

Posted on June 15th, 2012 No Comments

A study conducted by researchers in Taiwan suggests that people who have sleep apnea are at a higher risk of developing deep vein thrombosis.

The seven-year study examined more than 10,000 people, of which about half had sleep apnea.

During the study, 40 cases of deep vein thrombosis were diagnosed. Three quarters of them were in the sleep apnea group. This suggests that people with the condition are three times as likely to suffer these dangerous blood clots.

Like sleep apnea, certain oral contraceptives can increase a person’s chances of having a deep vein thrombosis. If you have taken Yasmin and suffered from its dangerous side effects, contact the Yasmin birth control lawsuit attorneys of Williams Kherkher at 800-761-3187.

DVT treatment and diagnosis methods

Posted on February 15th, 2012 No Comments

Clinical guidelines have been put in place by international experts in order to help with the diagnosis of blood-clotting diseases.

A researcher at the Intermountain Medical Center in Salt Lake City has stated that research needs to be done on the treatment and diagnosis of blood clotting disease such as Deep vein thrombosis because they are such common conditions that can have devastating effects.

DVT usually occurs in the large veins in a person’s leg and can cause the area to swell. The painful condition can also cause the clot to break off and move throughout the body. When this occurs, it is called an embolism and this condition can be fatal if it travels to a vital organ. Because of this, a DVT requires prompt treatment so that severe damage does not occur from it.

Blood clotting has recently been linked to the use of Yasmin birth control. If someone you love has taken Yasmin and suffered a DVT as a result, you need representation on your side at this time that may be able to help you receive the compensation you deserve.

DVT kills nearly 300,000 people a year, but many of these people were not even aware that this condition existed. DVT is a blood clot that usually occurs in the leg.

A number of things can cause this disease including immobility, the use of birth control pills, obesity and smoking. In order to prevent DVT, it is important to move your legs frequently and drink plenty of water.
