New treatment more effective at reducing blood clots in brain-injured patients
Researchers from the University of Missouri School of Medicine have found that a new protocol that uses preventive blood-thinning medication in the treatment of patients with traumatic brain injuries reduces the risk of patients developing life-threatening blood clots without increasing the risk of bleeding inside the brain. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, at least 1.7 million traumatic brain injuries occur each year.
