About Cutefon 2.5Mg/0.5Ml Injection

Cutefon 2.5Mg/0.5Ml Injection belongs to a class of drugs called anticoagulants (blood thinner) primarily used to prevent and treat deep vein thrombosis (blood clots in leg veins) and pulmonary embolism (blood clots in the lung) stroke, unstable angina (chest pain), heart attacks. It also reduces the risk of blood clots during orthopaedic (such as hip or knee surgery), abdominal surgery or restricted movement because of an acute illness. Deep vein thrombosis is a medical condition in which blood clots form in deep veins, usually in the legs. Pulmonary embolism is a condition in which a blood clot blocks the arteries in the lungs. 

Cutefon 2.5Mg/0.5Ml Injection contains ‘Fondaparinux’ that works by inhibiting the action of clotting factors Xa (a natural substance in the blood that causes clotting). Thus, it prevents the conversion of fibrinogen to fibrin (a protein that binds platelets together and forms a clot) and helps prevent blood clot formation. It makes blood flow easily through the veins, making it less likely to form a serious blood clot.

    Disease/Condition Glossary

    A blood clot is a clump of blood that has changed from a liquid to a gel-like or semisolid state. Blood clots are formed to stop bleeding that occurs due to tissue injury. Though blood clots are useful to stop bleeding, they may be harmful when abnormally formed within blood vessels as they block blood vessels and inhibit blood flow to essential organs such as the brain, heart or lungs and result in serious conditions. Deep vein thrombosis (blood clots in the legs) is a medical condition in which blood clots form in deep veins, usually in the legs. The symptoms include leg pain or swelling. Pulmonary embolism (blood clots in the lung) is a condition that occurs as the blood clots break and travel to the lungs from deep veins in the legs or other parts of the body. The symptoms of pulmonary embolism include chest pain, cough and shortness of breath. The common risk factors for blood clots are obesity, smoking, cancer, family history of blood clots, age over 65 years, certain birth control pills or pregnancy. If you experience chest pressure, sudden shortness of breath, or difficulty in breathing, speaking or seeing, please consult a doctor immediately, as these might be symptoms of blood clots. Quick medication is advised to reduce the risk of serious conditions due to blood clots.
