Table 4 Post hoc analysis 90-day mortality and need for renal replacement therapy

From: Early fluid resuscitation with hydroxyethyl starch 130/0.4 (6%) in severe burn injury: a randomized, controlled, double-blind clinical trial

Outcome (post hoc analysis) HES (n = 23) Lactated Ringer’s (n = 22) Difference P value
90-day mortality 8 (34.8%) 6 (27.3%)   
Risk ratio for 90-day mortality with HES    1.27 (95% CI 0.51 to 3.26) 0.59
Need for RRT 6 (26.1%) 6 (27.3%)   
Risk ratio for need of RRT with HES    0.96 (95% CI 0.35 to 2.64) 0.95
  1. Data are represented as number of patients (percentage) or risk ratio (confidence interval, or CI). HES, hydroxyethyl starch; RRT, renal replacement therapy.
