BACKGROUND Reliable measurement of intraoperative blood loss remains a serious challenge during correction of craniosynostosis. This study analyzed the relationship between estimated blood loss (EBL) and calculated blood loss (CBL) in fronto-orbital advancement and its implications on blood transfusion practice and hospital length of stay (LOS).
