In the retrospective portion of the trial, the mean PT prior to FFP transfusion was 17.5 seconds, the mean number of FFP units transfused was 3.75 units, and the mean PT following the FFP transfusion was 15.9 seconds. The mean change in PT following FFP, 1.5 seconds, was statistically significant, however, only 12.5% of the patients corrected their PT to within 3 seconds of their control value.

In the prospective portion of the trial, the mean PT prior to FFP transfusion was 20.0 seconds, the mean number of FFP units transfused was 2.9 units, and the mean PT following the FFP transfusion was 17.3 seconds. The mean change in PT following FFP, 3.75 seconds, was statistically significant, however, only 10% of the patients corrected their PT to within 3 seconds of the control value.
