Randomized Controlled Trial of Hemodilution Therapy in Acute Ischemic Stroke

Completed

Phase N/A Results

Results

Of the hemodiluted patients, 85% improved in neurological scoring over the first 10 days as compared to 64% of the control patients (p less than 0.025). Fewer patients in the hemodiluted group required long-term hospitalization at 3 months. The case fatality rate during the first 3 months was little affected by hemodilution.
