[Effects of autologous blood transfusion on the indicators of blood serum iron in surgical cases].

Abstract

The authors studied the indices of the serumal ferrum (total ferrum of the blood serum, total ferrum-binding ability of the blood serum and transferrin saturation with ferrum) before and at different terms after the exfusion of 400 cc of blood for the autotransfusion in planned surgical interventions upon 30 cases of pulmonary cancer, 21 cases of carcinoma of the stomach and 16 orthopedic cases. The same study was carried out upon a control group of normal individuals after exfusion of 400 cc of donor blood. Characteristic changes of the serumal ferrum metabolism due to the loss of a certain amount of hemoglobin after the exfusion were found in differen patients and in normal individuals.
