Bleeding complications are a known side effect for patients taking blood thinners. But for some patients taking Pradaxa, the bleeding complications may be irreversible, catastrophic or fatal.
The Journal of Neurosurgery report suggests that doctors should be alert to the potential for serious hemorrhaging in patients taking dabigatran, the generic name for Pradaxa. Currently, there is no effective antidote to reverse the bleeding effects of Pradaxa.
According to the journal article, emergency room doctors at the University of Utah described the case of an 83-year-old man who suffered a fall. The doctors said the man was initially fully alert and responsive to all verbal commands. A CT scan revealed superficial areas of bleeding in his brain. But within two hours after his arrival at the hospital, his neurologic condition began to deteriorate rapidly. Subsequent CT scans showed extensive brain hemorrhaging. The doctors tried unsuccessfully to stop the bleeding. The clear message: Pradaxa bleeding complications are largely irreversible.
