Surgical repair of craniosynostosis carries a high risk with large blood losses. Over a 2-yr period, we have managed 115 patients undergoing craniosynostosis repair with peroperative haemodilution to achieve a final PCV of 0.28-0.35. Measurements of PCV allowed calculation of estimated blood losses and transfused volumes in terms of red blood cell mass. Total estimated red cell volume lost was 91 +/- 66% of patient's estimated red blood cell volume during the peroperative period. The type of… CONTINUE READING
