BACKGROUND: Although the frequency of complications in adults undergoing therapeutic apheresis is low, there are little data in children. 
Epidemiology of therapeutic apheresis with a multidisciplinary approach at a high volume pediatric center
Therapeutic apheresis (TA) is used inconsistently in pediatric populations. We seek to define our multidisciplinary institutional practice.
An international survey of paediatric apheresis practice
TLDR
Increased attention must be paid to paediatric patients with conditions for which apheresis is indicated, as evidence‐based medicine advances the field of therapeutic Apheresis. Expand
Utility and safety of plasma exchange in paediatric neuroimmune disorders
Our aim was to ascertain the indications, side effects, and outcomes in children receiving therapeutic plasma exchange (TPE) for neurological disorders.
Regional citrate anticoagulation with calcium replacement in pediatric apheresis
The objective of this retrospective analysis was to present our single‐center experience with intravenous (IV) calcium replacement and regional citrate anticoagulation in pediatric apheresis therapyExpand
Therapeutic Apheresis in Children: Special Considerations
TLDR
The focus of this review is to highlight the disease processes commonly treated with therapeutic apheresis in children, and to address the technical considerations pertinent to the provision of safe and effective apheresIS in the pediatric setting. Expand
A safe therapeutic apheresis protocol in paediatric patients weighing 11 to 25 kg
TLDR
A 3‐year experience with children weighing 11–25 kg at a large academic medical centre is reported, finding that detailed protocols for small children are lacking, and often are performed using guidelines shown to work in larger patients. Expand
Efficacy and safety of therapeutic plasma exchange by using apheresis devices in pediatric atypical hemolytic uremic syndrome patients
TLDR
Therapeutic plasma exchange in atypical hemolytic uremic syndrome patients is considered as first line treatment as per current ASFA guidelines, but there is very limited data available in the literature regarding efficacy and safety of TPE procedures in pediatric aHUS patients. Expand
Safety and efficacy of autologous mononuclear cell and stem cell apheresis in very low‐weight children—Experience at a single center
Apheresis in children with low body weight is technically limited by their tolerance of the extracorporeal blood volume.
Complications of therapeutic apheresis in children.
TLDR
TA will be performed more successfully with correct planning and close examination of the patient with an experienced team, and for extracorporeal volume erythrocyte prime is useful. Expand
The ABC of apheresis
TLDR
A brief overview on general principles, indications and complications of apheresis is given. Expand

TLDR
Data from more than 20000 procedures show that in about 4.3% of occasions adverse events and other problems will develop, and the non-severe adverse events have increased over time. Expand

TLDR
Over the ten past years, the authors performed 336 apheresis among 51 children who were 19 months to 15 years old (10 to 30 kg body weight) and obtained a very good tolerance and acceptability. Expand

TLDR
Over 6 years, over 6 years the authors have observed 54 major complications, including 3 deaths, related to PE in 42 of 149 (28 percent) consecutive patients treated for clinically suspected TTP-HUS, and these observations are essential to understand the risks of PE. Expand
