Abstract


Objective: Intracranial hemorrhaging is a life-threatening condition that requires intensive treatment. Such hemorrhaging can happen spontaneously
and may be caused by vascular malformations, trauma, or the administration of anticoagulant medications. The purpose of this study was to evaluate
the risks of using tranexamic acid and Vitamin K for decreasing prothrombin time (PT) and activated partial thromboplastin time (aPTT) values in
intracranial hemorrhagic patients.
Methods: This study used a retrospective cohort design, and data were taken from patients’ medical records at the medical record installation of
Rumah Sakit Umum Pusat Fatmawati in Jakarta. A total of 125 medical records were selected based on the inclusion criteria. The first group included
patients receiving only tranexamic acid, and the second group consisted of patients receiving both tranexamic acid and Vitamin K.
Results: Statistical analysis using Chi-squared testing for the first group showed a significant decrease in aPTT values, with p=0.000 (p<0.05), but there
was no significant decrease in PT values, with p=0.314 (p<0.05). Statistical analysis using Chi-squared testing in the second group showed a significant
decrease in aPTT values, with p=0.000 (p<0.05), and a significant decrease in PT values, with p=0.034 (p<0.05). Patients that used tranexamic acid
and Vitamin K decreased the PT and aPTT values 2.7 times and 1, 6 times greater than patients without tranexamic acid and Vitamin K. Patients that
used tranexamic acid decreased the PT and aPTT values 2.5 times and 1.2 times greater than patients without tranexamic acid.
Conclusions: The combination of tranexamic acid and Vitamin K is potentially more effective in decreasing of hemorrhaging.
