Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

My father has suffered head trauma. The CT scan, which was performed, showed internal bleeding. He has a history of cardiac ailments, with two angioplasties performed on his arteries. According to the neurosurgeon, the daily medication dose for Ecospirin needs to be stopped to stop the internal bleeding, whereas the resident cardiologist says that stopping the Ecospirin will increase the chances of cardiac arrests immediately. Please advice.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I read your query and understand your concern. When was his angioplasty done? If he is having internal bleeding in the brain, then Ecosprin has to be stopped. It definitely increases the risk of heart attack, but if sufficient duration has passed post angioplasty, then the risk may not be that high, but this bleeding is an immediate threat to life. So I think it should be stopped to prevent the risk of a heart attack. Hope this helps you. Get back if you have any doubts. Regards.
