Pradaxa lawyers Accepting Cases For Brain Bleeds From Pradaxa

Written by Class Action Lawyer on . Posted in Class MDL Class Action News

Pradaxa is an anticoagulant used to prevent stroke in Cardiac patients.  A stroke is caused by a blood clot that dislodges and ends up in the brain blocking blood flow. Pradaxa can cause excessive bleeding and spontaneous brain bleeds or brain hemmorrages. The vessels in the brain thin and become very fragile as we age. A fall or bang or bump may cause a brain bleed which when using anticoagulants can be fatal. Pradaxa has been tauted as needing less medical followups the coumadin. Many people may not pay attention to the simple symptoms of a brain bleed.

WHAT IS PRADAXA?

Pradaxa® (dabigatran etexilate mesylate) capsules is a prescription blood-thinning medicine used to reduce the risk of stroke and blood clots in people with atrial fibrillation not caused by a heart valve problem.

What is a Brain hemorrhage

A brain hemorrhage is a type of stroke. It's caused by an artery in the brain bursting and causing localized bleeding in the surrounding tissues. This bleeding kills brain cells. Extensive bleeding is fatal. Pradaxa causes extensive bleeding. Class action lawyers are accepting cases for brain bleeds while taking Pradaxa.

What Happens During a Brain Hemorrhage?

When blood from trauma irritates brain tissues, it causes swelling. This is known as cerebral edema. The pooled blood collects into a mass called a hematoma. These conditions increase pressure on nearby brain tissue, and that reduces vital blood flow and kills brain cells.

Bleeding can occur inside the brain, between the brain and the membranes that cover it, between the layers of the brain's covering or between the skull and the covering of the brain.

What Causes Bleeding in the Brain?

There are several risk factors and causes of brain hemorrhages. The most common include:

  • Head trauma. Injury is the most common cause of bleeding in the brain for those under 50.
  • High blood pressure. This chronic condition can, over a long period of time, weaken blood vessel walls. Untreated high blood pressure is a major preventable cause of brain hemorrhages.
  • Aneurysm. This is a weakening in a blood vessel wall that swells. It can burst and bleed into the brain, leading to a stroke.
  • Blood vessel abnormalities. Weaknesses in the blood vessels in and around the brain may be present at birth and diagnosed only if symptoms develop.
  • Amyloid angiopathy. This is an abnormality of the blood vessel walls that sometimes occurs with aging. It may cause many small, unnoticed bleeds before causing a large one.
  • Blood or bleeding disorders. Hemophilia and sickle cell anemia can both contribute to decreased levels of blood platelets.
  • Liver disease. This condition is associated with increased bleeding in general.
  • Brain tumors.

What Are the Symptoms of Brain Bleeding?

The symptoms of a brain hemorrhage can vary. They depend on the location of the bleeding, the severity of the bleeding, and the amount of tissue affected. Symptoms may develop suddenly or over time. They may progressively worsen or suddenly appear.

If you exhibit any of the following symptoms, you may have a brain hemorrhage. This is a life-threatening condition, and you should call 911 or go to an emergency room immediately. The symptoms include:

  • a sudden severe headache
  • seizures with no previous history of seizures
  • weakness in an arm or leg
  • nausea or vomiting
  • decreased alertness; lethargy
  • changes in vision
  • tingling or numbness
  • difficulty speaking or understanding speech
  • difficulty swallowing
  • difficulty writing or reading
  • loss of fine motor skills, such as hand tremors
  • loss of coordination
  • loss of balance
  • an abnormal sense of taste
  • loss of consciousness

If you or a parent or grandparent is on Pradaxa you must be aware of the potential for brain bleeds.

Additional Symptoms of Pradaxa bleeding include:

  •     Lethargy
  •     Unusual bruising or bleeding / hemorrhaging
  •     Pink or brown urine
  •     Red or black tarry stools
  •     Coughing up blood
  •     Vomiting that resembles blood or looks like coffee grounds
  •     Bleeding from the gums
  •     Frequent nosebleeds
  •     Joint pain or swelling
  •     Headaches
  •     Dizziness
  •     Weakness and swelling of the arms, hands, feet, ankles or lower legs.
  •     Death

Pradaxa can Cause Serious Injury

  •     Gastrointestinal (GI) Bleeds or Internal Bleeds
  •     Brain Hemorrhage
  •     Kidney Bleeding
  •     Heart Attack
  •     Death
     

How Are Seniors More At risk with pradaxa

One particular danger associated with Pradaxa concerns the risk of dangerous internal bleeding to patients taking the drug who suffer a fall or other trauma. Given that most patients with atrial fibrillation are seniors, the risk of trauma is a serious one. When a Pradaxa user begins bleeding after a trauma, there is no way to counteract the blood-thinning properties of the drug. Pradaxa has no antidote. With warfarin, doctors can administer vitamin K or other substances to stop the bleeding – but not with Pradaxa.

If you have a loved one on pradaxa make sure they are under medical supervision. If a parent, grand parent or senior loved one or person you are caring for is taking Pradaxa be aware of falls. Seniors are prone to falling, bruise easily and have fragile blood vessels easily broken. Call Class Acion lawyer network for a Pradaxa lawyer today
