INTRODUCTION The appropriate strategy for trauma-induced coagulopathy management is under debate. We report the treatment of major trauma using mainly coagulation factor concentrates. METHODS This retrospective analysis included trauma patients who received >or= 5 units of red blood cell concentrate within 24 hours. Coagulation management was guided by(More)
Topical capsaicin 8% was developed for the treatment of peripheral neuropathic pain. The pain reduction is associated with a reversible reduction of epidermal nerve fiber density (ENFD). During its application, topical capsaicin 8% provokes distinct pain. In a randomized, double-blind study analyzed with a block factorial analysis of variance, we tested(More)
BACKGROUND Hydroxyethyl starch (HES) solutions alter blood coagulation, mainly platelet function and fibrinogen polymerization. Haemostasis can also be impaired by dilutional-hyperchloraemic acidosis induced by the HES carrier solution. We hypothesized that a saline-based tetrastarch carrier solution impairs parameters of blood coagulation more than a(More)
