Could taking an aspirin after breaking a bone stop embolism?

  1. I heard that someone fell an broke some bones, then at the hospital had a heart attack that i suspect was related to a blood embolism. If they had taken an aspirin after the fall, could the heart attack possibly been avoided?

    Any answer would only be pure speculation. Sounds like a situation that the patient should discuss with his/her primary care provider and specialists to determine the best treatment going forward.

    Agree with RoseQueen - we can't speculate on this.
