Heparin is the main ally for thrombosis

13 Oct 2021

Thrombosis is the third most common cardiovascular disease internationally. Every hour there are more than a thousand cases of venous thromboembolism (VTE) in the world. Sedentary lifestyle and age lead to thrombosis. Bioiberica leads the world production of heparin. Thrombi always form in veins leading to the heart. When a cluster of platelets is formed that prevents normal blood circulation, it is what we know as a thrombus. The main symptom is swelling and pain in the lower extremities. Regular movement and loose clothing help prevent thrombus formation.
