On the heels of the US FDA approving dabigatran, the long-awaited alternative to Coumadin (warfarin), comes word that Health Canada has as well. In Canada, dabigatran is known as PRADAX™. Because this is the first alternative to warfarin in Canada, it is big news for the afib community there.

Hi – I have been taking Pradax for 6 months and have not had very much bruising. But was wondering what happens if you have to have emergency surgery as in an appendicitis .
The info I go was if you are having surgery oral or not then you would have come off the pradax for 5 days – what if this is not possible.
Was just wondering , thanks.
