How Platelet Inhibitor Can Help Patients Avoid Heart Attacks

Posted on Nov 30, 2011

November 30, 2011 – In a report from the American Heart Association (AHA), a platelet inhibitor administered 2 ways is found to help heart attack patients. If a heart attack has left you disabled, then you may be entitled to benefits.

New research has shown that whether a platelet inhibitor is given intravenously or directly into the coronary artery that is blocked, both are effective means of reducing the threat of death.

Patients in the study had suffered a STEMI (ST-elevation myocardial infarction), which often leads to the necessity of angioplasty with stenting. Research was done to see if either method of delivering a platelet inhibitor was more effective than the other in reducing death.

Not only was there no real difference found between the 2 methods but researchers also found the administration of a platelet inhibitor to be safe. There were no significant risks of excessive bleeding or other complications.

When you are disabled and no longer able to work, you may assume that you will automatically receive disability benefits. However that is not always the case. You may find it necessary to seek legal counsel. A Missouri disability attorney can evaluate your case to determine if you qualify and assist you throughout the entire claims process.
