Fox News

Robotic prostatectomy surgeon, Dr. David Samadi, shares alarming news of bleeding risk associated with daily dose aspirin for the prevention of heart attacks. New research shows that daily low dose aspirin only reduces the risk of heart attack by 10%, while increasing the risk of bleeding by a staggering 30%. Dr. Samadi cautions that, in light of these findings, only patients at high risk of heart attack should continue the aspirin regimen. High-risk patients include those with a family history of heart disease or those with diabetes, high blood pressure, or peripheral vascular disease. Patients currently taking low dose aspirin on a daily basis should consult with their physicians about the preventative benefits and potential risks. Treatment benefits may still exist for those who previously suffered a heart attack or stroke.

Dr. Samadi is Chairman of Urology and Chief of Robotic Surgery at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City.
