CRASH 2 STUDY TRANEXAMIC ACID EPUB


It has previously been used in controlling bleeding complications in those with hemophilia, those undergoing cardiopulmonary bypass, and those with menorrhagia.

The Clinical Randomization of an Antifibrinolytic in Significant Hemorrhage 2 CRASH-2 was an international study of 20, trauma patients with crash 2 study tranexamic acid at risk of significant hemorrhage, defined based on hemodynamic instability. Deterministic and probabilistic sensitivity analyses were performed to test the robustness of the results to model assumptions.

Two hundred and seventy-four hospitals in 40 countries. Tranexamic acid loading dose 1 g over 10 minutes then infusion of 1 g over 8 hours or matching placebo.

The primary outcome was death in hospital within 4 weeks of injury, and was described with the following categories: All-cause mortality at 28 days was significantly reduced by TXA [ patients All analyses crash 2 study tranexamic acid by intention to treat.

A Markov model was used to assess cost-effectiveness. The health outcome was the number of life-years LYs gained. Cost data were obtained from hospitals, the World Health Organization database and UK reference costs.

Deterministic and probabilistic sensitivity analyses were performed to test the robustness of the results to model assumptions. An important consideration is whether the reduction in hemorrhage comes at the expense of an increased risk of vascular occlusion such as MI, stroke, DVT, or PE.

Prior studies have demonstrated that tranexamic acid may elevate the risk of VTE, particularly among those with factor IX deficiency. Tranexamic acid, a synthetic derivative of the amino acid lysine, appears to interfere with crash 2 study tranexamic acid hyperfibrinolysis, prompting investigators to study whether the agent may reduce the morbidity and mortality of traumatic hemorrhage.

It has previously been used in controlling bleeding complications in those with hemophilia, those undergoing cardiopulmonary bypass, and those with menorrhagia.
