The programme of autologous transfusion with planned surgeries
Biljana Paraskijević, Biljana Todorović-Kazimirović
|Summary: Autologous Transfusion (AT) is
a form of blood administration with the donor and the recipient being the
same person. The objective of this study is to present our experience and
contribution of the AT programme in achieving a higher level of safety in
chemotherapy treatment. We applied two types of AT in our Centre: 1)
Pre-surgical autologous blood collection (PABC) – one or more blood units
are taken in intervals of five to seven days, with the last unit taken at
least 72 hours prior to surgery; 2) Acute normovolemic hemodilution (ANH)
– blood is taken immediately before or after anaesthetic induction and
simultaneously replaced by the corresponding volume of infusion solution.
From 2000 to 2003, we did seven PABCs and two ANHs. Only one patient
received both autologous and allogenous blood. Based on the number of ATs
done, it can be said that this type of blood administration is yet to be
practiced in our Centre
