Plavix not optimal choice for ccsvi anticoagulation

Postby Cece » Sun Feb 19, 2012 11:31 am

Dr. Arata posted this link over on Facebook today:
http://atvb.ahajournals.org/content/28/3/413.full.pdf

It's the only published research on the use of Plavix in venous disease, and it says that Plavix does not work.

Are some IRs still prescribing Plavix or aspirin only? I know Pradaxa has been gaining in popularity but it probably isn't universal. It mattered to me when I got my procedure that I would be on a true anticoagulant, especially since there were so many cases of thrombosed jugulars being reported at that time.

hi CC
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

Best of Luck, Esta! I'm considering a 3rd intervention presently. I will be speaking to my local doc who is currently at ISNVD. I will send you a PM.

If angioplasty is done gradually, there will be no 'pop' but if done suddenly there will be a 'pop' and that is the valve tearing.

Esta, wishing you the best of results!! And you as well, PointsNorth!

The Dr. McGuckin video I posted the other day included him telling the patient to take Plavix and aspirin. So, to answer the question in the first post, yes there are still doctors prescribing Plavix, and it would be good to ask Dr. McGuckin about the research that Dr. Arata dug up (in the first link) that concluded that Plavix was ineffective against clotting in venous disease.
