NOVEMBER 2015 – Pradaxa patients may have a better chance of surviving emergency surgeries, due to a recent study using 5g of idarucizumab (humanized antibody fragments). In critical cases, such as patients with uncontrolled bleeding, intracranial hemmorrhage, or severe trauma following an automobile accident, there is a marginally improved chance for the patient to survive invasive procedures. The specific study mentioned that the timing of the treatment is crucial, such as administering the anticoagulant within four hours. Normal results occurred 92% of the time, under controlled circumstances in the study from Boehringer Ingelheim. Results of the study were presented at the European Society of Cardiology Congress 2015.
