Total hip replacement (THR) is associated with a significant perioperative blood loss, and 30–50% of these patients receive allogeneic blood transfusion (ABT). We evaluated the clinical utility of washed shed blood (WSB) return to reduce ABT in THR patients. Data from 108 consecutive THR patients were prospectively collected. WSB salvage and reinfusion (OrthoPAT) was intended for 60 (Reinfusion group), whereas the remaining 48 patients served as control group. Patients received ABT if… CONTINUE READING
