Patients who bled recurrently after an initial PTH were less likely to undergo control of their bleeding in the OR during their first admission, which was a statistically significant difference between the groups.
Subsequent bleeds are unlikely--only 10% of those undergoing surgery for a PTH bled again, versus 55% of nonoperative patients--and, for those who bled within the first week, none of these recurrent bleeds occurred within 24 hours of admission.
