Acute normovolemic hemodilution (ANH) may help to reduce demand for homologous blood but requires extra time and apparatus. A more simple procedure is acute hypervolemic hemodilution (HHD), where hydroxyethylstarch is administered preoperatively without removal of blood. In a prospectively randomized study we compared ANH (preoperatively 15 mL/kg autologous blood removal and replacement with 15 mL/kg of hydroxyethylstarch with HHD (15 mL/kg of hydroxyethylstarch administered preoperatively) in… CONTINUE READING
