STUDY FINDS ASPIRIN AS EFFECTIVE AS PRESCRIPTION MEDS IN PREVENTING POSTâOP CLOTS
A revolutionary new study led by Dr. David Anderson, Dean of the Faculty of Medicine, and Dr. Michael Dunbar, a professor in the Department of Surgery, has determined that Bayer Aspirin is just as effective in preventing blood clots following joint replacement surgeries as rivaroxaban, a costly anti-coagulant commonly used in Canada.
This will result in significant cost-savings for patients, with Bayer Aspirin costing pennies a day, compared to dollars a day for rivaroxaban. It will also create a new standard of care for post-operative care for hip and knee replacement patients not only in Canada, but around the world.
