Blood clotting is considered to be a crucial process to prevent excessive bleeding from taking place following any injury to the blood vessel. But blood clots may form within the blood vessel of the brain which might not have sustained any kind of damage. Some clots might fail to fully dissolve once the injury has healed. Such clots may travel via the circulatory system, only to cause blood supply restriction to the vital organ. Such blood clot types can be real serious and also may need urgent treatment. The leading hospitals in the country do offer various types of treatments and also have low blood clot brain surgery cost in India. It is necessary for the person to know the different types of treatments available to cure blood clots. Getting tips can prevent and also ensure efficient and effective long term blood clotting disorder management. 

Treatment

The type of treatment to be provided for blood clots entirely depends upon the patient’s overall health condition including its location.

Anticoagulant medications

The doctor in majority of the cases is likely to prescribe the patients with anticoagulant medications that are often termed as blood thinners. Such medications are likely to reduce the ability of the body to develop new clots and also prevent the existing ones from getting much bigger. 

Usually anticoagulant medications are offered by doctors during the initial 5 to 10 days following blood clot diagnosis. Few may be suggested to continue with their anticoagulant prescription for several, weeks, couple of months and even years to ensure that the clots do not return back. 

The commonly prescribed anticoagulant medication includes the following:

  • Low molecular-weight heparin: Also known in short as LMWH is said to derive from unfractionated heparin (UFH). LMFG’s effects do last longer on the body when compared to that of UFH and also more predictable. Those availing LMWH may self-inject the same within their home setting and not require having routine blood monitoring. 

  • Unfractionated heparin: Known in short as UFH, it works along with antithrombin – considered to be a protein present in the body to help prevent formation of new clots. UFH is administered by the doctor via an injection below the skin or intravenously to allow quick functioning of the drug. UFH blood levels might intermittently change throughout the day. Hence the person on receipt of UFH is likely to need regular blood tests.

  • Direct oral anti-coagulant medications (DOACs): They are regarded to be the latest class of anticoagulants. Such drugs are known to target directly specific proteins that are responsible to clot blood. They act very quickly and do have short lasting effects upon the body. Missing a dosage is likely to increase blood clot formation risks. DOACs if taken correctly, is likely to carry very few risks when compared to Warfarin and also less likely to make the person to bleed and interact with supplements, other medications and foods. But they are quite expensive. Patients should avoid missing out their regular dosage. Few DOAC drugs are:

    • Betrixaban (BevyxXa)

    • Apixaban (Eliquis)

    • Rivaroxaban (Xarelto)

    • Edoxaban (Savaysa)

    • Dabigatran (Pradaxa)

  • Warfarin: It functions through interference of vitamin K production, which is used by the liver to create protons that is essential for blood clotting. Warfarin pills may be recommended to those transitioning from heparin cure. During the initial treatment week, the person may need numerous blood tests, enabling the doctor to determine appropriate dosage. On having established dosage, there will be necessary routine blood monitoring to avoid uncontrolled bleeding risks. 

  • Thrombolytics: These are drugs prescribed to dissolve blood clots. The doctor may offer intravenous thrombolytic or use catheter in vein to allow delivers directly the drug to the clot site. However, Thrombolytics may increase bleeding risks. Hence, such drugs are recommended for those having clots not resolving on availing anticoagulant treatment or have developed very large clots. 

  • Compression stockings: People developing blood clot in any of the deep veins present in the legs and arms, is referred to as DVT (deep vein thrombosis). They might experience PTS (postthrombotic syndrome). Those suffering from PTS may experience intense pain and swelling in damaged blood vessels.
