curious if anyone has any experience with a new medical ...

Postby mnymgr1 » Mon Oct 16, 2017

device called The Watchmen ???
It is a small balloon like device that dr's implant in a part of the heart described to me as the appendix of the heart.
Doesn't have a function that they know about but a lot of blood clots form inside this ventricle.
They put the Watchmen at the opening, it balloons up and voila, no more blood clot worries.
Heart Blood clots cause about 50% of strokes and using this device will take that 50% down 90%.
As dear ole dad is on Eliquis but needs to get off after years of usage (to ward off clots), this is what they suggest.

I personally think my father is a cash cow for the dr's, hospitals, etc. and now a guinea pig.
Only 130 of these have been used in IL to date and there will be multiple dr's in the room learning the technique.
At 'only' $20k just for the device, it's a steal right :roll:

I don't know about "The Watchmen", but I spent over 5 years of my career working on Eliquis. Great drug when you compare it to the older standard warfarin. $20,000 for a device... vs $50,000 plus potential changes in quality of life for a stroke... This is the core of what insurance companies and doctors do- is the change/risk worth the benefit? Each individual patient is different, but when you look across a patient population, trend-lines appear (epidemiology).

NBC news did a story tonight on how some prescriptions are cheaper without insurance, but "gag clauses" in insurance contracts prevent the pharmacist from telling us this info. A few states outlaw such clauses, but either way, they say if you ask if there is a way to get a lower price, this allows the pharmacist to tell you even with a gag clause.

Just FYI for anyone dealing with medications.
