24-hour survival of autotransfused red cells in elective aortic surgery: a comparison of two intraoperative autotransfusion systems.

Abstract

Twelve patients undergoing elective aortic surgery had intraoperative autotransfusion using either the Haemonetics Cell Saver or the Solcotrans device. The 24-h post-transfusion survival of the patients' preoperative red cells, labelled with indium-111, was compared with the survival of salvaged red cells labelled with chromium-51.
