New Pradaxa Bleeding Data Is Nothing Short of Terrifying

This is Michael Brady Lynch, lead trial attorney for The Michael Brady Lynch Firm.
The latest data is out on Pradaxa bleeding events and the numbers are nothing short of downright terrifying.
Pradaxa manufacturer Boehringer Ingelheim just put online on “” some new data on fatal/major bleeds as reported to the company up to end of  2013.
It is shocking to see that despite decreasing Pradaxa prescriptions still, about 60 patients die every month from a Pradaxa bleed.

New Pradaxa Bleeding Data

 Green figures are calculated and can be compared with data released by the Institute for Safe Medication Practices:

31. March 2013 30. June 2013 30. Sept 2013 31. Dec 2013
Fatal bleeds 1.163 1.448 1.637 1.646
Majors bleeds (include fatal) 7.601 9.138 9.939 10.798
Major bleeds (nonfatal) 6.438 7.690 8.302 9.152
fatal bleeds as % of major bleeds  18 19 20 18
The only logical conclusion is that the high case fatality of a major bleed with Pradaxa support the hypothesis that the irreversible nature of Pradaxa is responsible for the catastrophic outcome following a bleeding event.
