Limit Quinolones Due to Aortic Aneurysm and Rupture Risks

Aortic aneurysm rupture is the latest quinolone risk...leading Health Canada to conduct another safety review of quinolones.

These aortic complications are rare...occurring about one in every 11,000 people in the general population each year...but can be fatal.

That number can jump to one in about 300 high-risk people. This includes the elderly...people with a history of aneurysm, hypertension, vascular disease, or smoking...or those with some genetic conditions.
