Without actually knowing how many hours participants watched TV, and by comparing groups with very different risks, researchers concluded that TV watching is associated with clot formation. By extension, does this mean that binge-watching is harmful to our health?
A new study shows that, despite ongoing educational efforts, doctors caring for patients with vein leg clots fail a significant fraction of the time to prescribe clot-dissolving anticoagulants (blood thinners) to vulnerable patients.
After years of status quo in the field of anticoagulants (blood thinners to prevent and treat vein inflammation and clotting), recent years have seen a veritable explosion of improved drugs to deal with this common and dangerous condition. Now a new report describes yet another advance in therapy.
