Xarelto Bleeding

Blood clots can form in situations where blood flow is impaired (for example, heart dysfunction or following a recent surgery), and these clots can eventually break loose and travel elsewhere in the body. If one of these clots arrives at the heart or brain, the result is a heart attack or stroke. Xarelto bleeding happens because the drug prevents the development of blood clots by inhibiting the action of factor Xa, a substance involved in the series of physiological reactions that produce a clot.
