I will be taking Pradaxa instead of plavix on Friday, when I have my third procedure with Dr. Arata in California. I can be the great experiment since I'll have had both.
last time, a year ago, I restenosed and then later had a stent when I was placed on Plavix and aspirin but still developed intmal hyperplasia.
apparently they are fixing the bad side, and my left side will have the valve torn and I gather angioplasty so within two months I will know whether Pradaxa is better. Stay tuned
