Is there a way to improve the mortality rate for hie?

Yes: Mortality from hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy (hie) has improved in recent years due to a variety of medical interventions, including having a skilled pediatric attendant at delivery, early recognition of hie and prompt stabilization, intensive care neonatology, and most recently hypothermia therapy.

What's the mortality rate for people with itp?

It's very rare, but: Does happen. If ones platelet count fall to low enough, spontaneous bleeding can occur. Head bleeds, for example, can be both spontaneous and life-threatening. That being said, the plts that a person with itp does have tend to be more thrombofenic because they are "younger". This helps to mitigate the consequences of low PLT count. Your dr. Can give you additional info. Good luck.

What is the mortality rate for the bcir operation?

What is the mortality rate for the bcir operation?

Depends!: It's going to depend on your surgeon's expertise, the hospital you choose, your disease state, your current anatomy, your surgical history, other major health issues (like kidney, heart, lung or liver disease), the medications you take (eg immunosuppressants). In general, I would imagine death to be less than 1 in a 100. You should consult with an expert: http://www. Fascrs. Org/.

What is the mortality rate for acute promyelocytic leukemia?

Good risk: Acute promyelocytic leukemia (APL) is characterized by the presence of "promyelocytes" in the blood and bone marrow. They have a very distinctive appearance. APL arises from very specific gene mutations that puts the disease in a good risk category. This means that the most patients can be put into remission and cured of the disease, using retinoic acid, arsenic trioxide, and chemotherapy.
