Ischemic stroke, which occurs when blood supply to the brain is cut off, should be treated immediately to prevent brain damage and other severe complications, not to mention death.
Emergency responders or medical professionals may administer tissue plasminogen activator (TPA) through a catheter in a patient’s groin, which goes to the brain, to break up the clots. Additionally, doctors may remove blood clots manually in severe cases where such surgery is possible.
The recurrence of an ischemic stroke may be prevented by taking anti-thrombotic drug like Aspirin to prevent blood clots from forming.
Unfortunately, strokes are a common side effect of using the drug Yaz or Yasmin. If you believe that your stroke was caused by the use of these birth controls, call the legal team at Williams Hart at (713) 352-7071 to learn about how you may be able to pursue compensation.
