BackgroundSurgery for craniosynostosis is associated with the potential for significant blood loss. Multiple technologies have been introduced to reduce the volume of blood transfused. These are preoperative autologous donation; preoperative erythropoietin; intraoperative cell salvage (CS); acute normovolemic hemodilution; antifibrinolytic drugs such as tranexamic acid, &egr;-aminocaproic acid, and aprotinin; fibrin sealants or fibrin glue; and postoperative drain reinfusion.
