The FDA approved Xarelto in 2011 for the treatment of stroke, deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary embolism and blood clots in patients who recently underwent hip or knee replacement surgery. Less than one year after its introduction, hundreds of Xarelto patients were reported to suffer serious and even fatal side effects.
