Should anticoagulants be restarted after GI bleeding or not?


Should anticoagulants be restarted after GI bleeding or not?
Patients with gastrointestinal bleeding during anticoagulant and/or antiplatelet therapy represent a clinical challenge.
Gastrointestinal bleeding is a common side effect of many blood-thinning medications. A new Mayo Clinic research finds that risk is amplified in patients receiving more than one blood thinner – especially if they’re 75 or older. A usual query raised is that should blood thinning medicines be started after an episode of G I bleeding keeping in mind the risk benefit ratio.
