and if you have afib-an irregular heartbeat that may put you at five times greater risk of stroke they can pool together in the heart, forming a clot that can break free and travel upstream to the brain, where it can block blood flow and cause a stroke. but if you have afib that's not caused by a heart valve problem, pradaxa can help stop clots from forming. pradaxa was even proven superior to warfarin at reducing the risk of stroke, in a clinical trial without the need for regular blood tests. and, in the rare event of an emergency, pradaxa is the only oral blood thinner other than warfarin with a specific reversal treatment to help your body clot normally again. pradaxa is not for people who have had a heart valve replacement. don't stop taking pradaxa without talking to your doctor. stopping increases your risk of stroke or blood clots ask your doctor if you need to stop pradaxa before any planned medical or dental procedure. pradaxa can cause serious, and sometimes, fatal bleeding. don't take pradaxa if you have abnormal bleeding. and seek immediate medical care for unexpected signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising.

6:54 pm
the third straight season. lone wiz in the game. wall has been great so far this year. too bad the wizards have not followed his lead as, of course, they have struggled, but not john wall. i'm kind of still annoyed that this guy aaron gordon of orlando did not win the slam duonnk c testlast night. look at the lazy boy dunk. that's a sight to behold. this is jack lavine of minnesota. he wins list title, but i think aaron gordon is the real champ. >> he was robbed! >> number two, maryland had a humbling loss to wisconsin last night and there was an ugly incident to boot. late first half, it wasn't the boot. it was freshman center diamond stone and he used his hand in a scrum when he slams a badger's play's head into the hardwood. this is the initial play. take a look at the replay as he falls on top of the player and slams the head.
