What has NICE said?

Dabigatran etexilate (also known as Pradaxa) is recommended as a possible treatment for adults with deep vein thrombosis or pulmonary embolism.

What does this mean for me?

If you have deep vein thrombosis or pulmonary embolism and your doctor thinks that dabigatran etexilate is the right treatment, you should be able to have the treatment on the NHS.

Dabigatran etexilate should be available on the NHS within 3 months of the guidance being issued.
