Table 3 Comparison of neurological outcomes and complication rates between coagulopathic and non-coagulopathic patients, and between the MTH (32–34 °C) and control (35.5–37 °C) groups with or without coagulopathy

From: Therapeutic hypothermia in patients with coagulopathy following severe traumatic brain injury

Variable Coagulopathy n = 32 Non-Coagulopathy n = 87  
Control (35.5–37.0 °C) n = 12 MTH (32.0–34.0 °C) n = 20 P-value Control (35.5–37.0 °C) n = 28 MTH (32.0–34.0 °C) n = 59 P-value
Favorable outcome 4 (33.3) 7 (35.0) 1.00 16 (57.1) 28 (47.5) 0.49
Survival rate 6 (50.0) 12 (60.0) 0.72 25 (89.3) 38 (64.4) 0.02
Overall complication rate 1 (8.3) 3 (15.0) 1.00 0 (0) 12 (20.3) < 0.01
  1. MTH mild therapeutic hypothermia
  2. Neurological outcomes were evaluated 6 months after brain injury
  3. Complications occurring during targeted temperature management were recorded
