Deep vein thrombosis: Lower risk treatment now involves pill instead of injectable
from Science World Report
New findings published in the journal Academic Emergency Medicine reveal that a pill may be more effective in the treatment of some potentially fatal blood clots. The standard treatment of deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism involves injecting the drug heparin and an oral drug warfarin, along with the close monitoring of the patient. Both drugs require close monitoring of the dosages because of the potential for additional clots or bleeding, and warfarin requires patients to monitor their diet, as well.
