Benefits of Lupenox Injection

In Treatment and prevention of Blood clots

Lupenox 40mg Injection prevents new blood clots from forming and prevents the existing ones from getting bigger. It works by blocking a substance in the body which is involved in blood clotting. Thus it helps your blood flow smoothly throughout the body. This can help reduce damage caused by clots in your lungs (pulmonary embolism), brain (stroke), heart (heart attack), or other blood vessels (thrombosis). It can also be used to prevent clots from forming after surgery, for example, to replace a knee or hip joint. Although it does not “dissolve” blood clots, it can prevent them from getting bigger so your body can dissolve them over time. It can also make it less likely that parts of a clot will break off and travel to other parts of the body.
