Influence of warfarin and low-dose aspirin on the outcomes of geriatric patients with traumatic intracranial hemorrhage resulting from ground-level fall
Geriatrics and Gerontology International, 04/19/2012
Inamasu J et al. – The use of warfarin, but not of low–dose aspirin (LDA), might be associated with unfavorable outcomes in elderly with fall–induced traumatic intracranial hemorrhage (TICH). The risk of TICH should be communicated properly to elderly taking warfarin. The information might be important not only to trauma surgeons who take care of injured elderly, but also to geriatric physicians who prescribe warfarin/LDA to them.
