Effects of Erythropoietin on Cerebral Vascular Dysfunction and Anemia in Traumatic Brain Injury

Claudia Robertson
Importance: There is limited information about the effect of erythropoietin or a high transfusion threshold in traumatic brain injury (TBI). Objective: To compare the effects of erythropoietin and two transfusion thresholds (7 and 10 g/dl) on neurological recovery after TBI. Design: Randomized trial using a factorial design to test: i.) whether erythropoietin would fail to improve favorable outcomes by 20%, and ii.) whether a transfusion threshold of >10 g/dl would increase favorable outcomes without increasing...
