How PRADAXA Works

Blood clots are a leading cause of AFib-related strokes

For people with atrial fibrillation, or AFib, not caused by a heart valve problem, PRADAXA reduces the risk of a blood clot forming in the heart and traveling to the brain, where it can cause a stroke. A stroke caused by a blood clot is called an ischemic (is-KEE-mic) stroke.
