Recombinant Human Erythropoietin and Hemoglobin Concentration at Operation and during the Postoperative Period: Reduced Need for Blood Transfusions in Patients Undergoing Colorectal Surgery—Prospective Double-blind Placebo-controlled Study

Abstract

p < 0.05). On postoperative days 3 and 7 the values were 7.2 (5.3–8.2) and 7.5 (5.4–9.4) mmol/L, respectively, in the erythropoietin group compared to 6.7 (5.2–7.8) and 6.9 (5.1–8.6) mmol/L in the placebo group ( p < 0.01). At discharge the hemoglobin concentration was 7.8 (5.9–8.8) mmol/L in the erythropoietin group and 7.2 (5.4–8.6) mmol/L in the placebo… (More)
