Abstract
Coagulopathy following traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a well-recognized pathophysiological state following head injury. A meta-analysis found that the weighted average number of patients with coagulopathy following traumatic brain injury was 35.2%. The temporal pattern of coagulopathy is viable. Some patients have an early transient raise in coagulation parameters others have more delayed response. The most important coagulation parameter is currently an area of debate. Some others suggest that the PT is the most important predictor of hemorrhagic progression. Other authors suggest that thrombocytopenia is the most important predictor of haematoma progression. The presence of traumatic brain induced coagulopathy increases the risk of hematoma progression by an odds ratio of 6.897. The aim of this talk is to review the characteristics of this disease process and to discuss possible etiological mechanisms responsible for this response.
