Abstract

Objective: To identify changes in concentrations of inflammatory mediators in plasma and urine after traumatic spinal cord injury (SCI) and before the occurrence of a first pressure ulcer. Design: Retrospective; secondary analysis of existing data. Setting: Acute hospitalization and inpatient rehabilitation sites at a university medical center. Participants: Individuals with a pressure ulcer and plasma samples (n=17) and individuals with a pressure ulcer and urine samples (n=15) were matched by age and plasma/urine sample days to individuals with SCI and no pressure ulcer (N=35). Interventions: Not applicable. Main Outcome Measures: Plasma and urine samples were assayed in patients with SCI, capturing samples within 4 days after the SCI to a week before the formation of the first pressure ulcer. The Wilcoxon signed-rank test was performed to identify changes in the inflammatory mediators between the 2 time points. Results: An increase in concentration of the chemokine interferon-γ-induced protein of 10kd/CXCL10 in plasma (P
