EGITROMB WHAT IS AND WHAT IT IS USED FOR?
Egitromb belongs to a group of medicines called antiplatelet medicinal products. Platelets are very small structures in the blood, smaller than red or white blood cells that clump in blood clotting. By preventing this clumping, antiplatelet medicinal products reduce the likelihood of blood clots (a process called thrombosis).
Egitromb is used to prevent blood clots (thrombi) forming in hardened blood vessels (arteries) - a process known as atherothrombosis, which can lead to aterotrombichni conditions (such as stroke, heart attack, or death).
Egitromb is prescribed to help prevent blood clots and reduce the risk of these serious conditions because:
You have hardening of the arteries (a condition known as atherosclerosis)
Surviving are heart attack, stroke or have a condition known as peripheral arterial disease, or
Surviving are severe chest pain known as angina'''' or'''' myocardial infarction (heart attack). For the treatment of this condition your doctor may have placed a stent in the blocked or narrowed artery to restore effective blood flow. Your doctor should have prescribed acetylsalicylic acid (a substance present in many medicines used to relieve pain and lower fever and to prevent blood clotting).
