OBJECTIVE To observe the serial changes of plasma microparticle procoagulant activity in patients with traumatic brain injury (TBI) and evaluate its correlations with outcome and pathophysiology of TBI. METHODS A total of 139 consecutive patients with isolated moderate or severe head trauma and 40 age- and sex-matched healthy controls were enrolled. Plasma samples were obtained on entry in healthy controls, as well as on admission and at day 1, day 2, day 3, day 5, and day 7 after TBI in the… CONTINUE READING
