Resumen Antecedentes y objetivos El momento óptimo para la administración de ácido tranexámico en la artroplastia de rodilla con torniquete no está claro. El objetivo principal de nuestro estudio era demostrar si su administración tras la inducción anestésica reduce el sangrado postoperatorio respecto a administrarlo antes de la liberación del tor...

Background-Patient blood management (PBM) is an evidence-based care bundle with proven ability to improve patients' outcomes by managing and preserving the patient's own blood. Since 2010, the World Health Organisation has urged member states to implement PBM. However, there has been limited progress in developing PBM programmes in hospitals due to...

Article
Preoperative anemia affects 30–40% of patients undergoing major surgery and is an independent risk factor for perioperative blood transfusion, morbidity, and mortality. Absolute or functional iron deficiency is its leading cause. Nonanemic hematinic deficiencies are also prevalent and may hamper preoperative hemoglobin optimization and/or recovery...
Article
Full-text available
Despite numerous guidelines on the management of anaemia in surgical patients, there is no pragmatic guidance for the diagnosis and management of anaemia and iron deficiency in the postoperative period. A number of experienced researchers and clinicians took part in a two‐day expert workshop and developed the following consensus statement. After pr...
Article
Full-text available
In patients undergoing major orthopaedic surgery, pre-operative anaemia, peri-operative bleeding and a liberal transfusion policy are the main risk factors for requiring red blood cell transfusion (RBCT). The clinical and economic disadvantages of RBCT have led to the development and implementation of multidisciplinary, multimodal, individualised s...
Article
Anemia is an independent risk factor for adverse patient outcomes. There are no guidelines for management of anemia in patients withcongestive heart failure (CHF), despite itshigh incidence. Four objectives were defined by the International Anemia Management and Clinical Outcomes Expert Panel (AMCO), a multinational group of interdisciplinary exper...

Background. Transfusion of allogeneic blood influences outcome after surgery. Despite widespread availability of transfusion guidelines, transfusion practices might vary among physicians, departments, hospitals and countries. Our aim was to determine the amount of packed red blood cells (pRBC) and blood products transfused intraoperatively, and to...
Article
Full-text available
In recent years, several safety alerts have questioned or restricted the use of some pharmacological alternatives to allogeneic blood transfusion in established indications. In contrast, there seems to be a promotion of other alternatives, based on blood products and/or antifibrinolytic drugs, which lack a solid scientific basis. The Multidisciplin...
Article
The liberal use of transfusions is not only a risk for patients but also represents a significant healthcare expenditure. The rational use of allogeneic blood transfusions and the use of transfusion alternatives, such as the optimization of preoperative hemoglobin levels, can offer substantial savings to health departments by reducing the cost of t...

The objective of this article is to determine the availability of a perioperative transfusion management program (Patient Blood Management [PBM]) in various hospitals through a survey that included a description of the preanesthesia visit, the availability and use of the various blood-sparing techniques and the factors limiting their implementation...
Article
Full-text available
Patient Blood Management (PBM) is the design of a personalized, multimodal multidisciplinary plan for minimizing transfusion and simultaneously achieving a positive impact on patient outcomes. The first pillar of PBM consists of optimizing the erythrocyte mass. The best chance for this step is offered by preoperative preparation. In most cases, a d...
Article
Hemoglobin optimization and treatment of preoperative anemia in surgery with a moderate to high risk of surgical bleeding reduces the rate of transfusions and improves hemoglobin levels at discharge and can also improve postoperative outcomes. To this end, we need to schedule preoperative visits sufficiently in advance to treat the anemia. The trea...
Article
The prevalence of preoperative anemia in major orthopedic surgery is high and is the main predictive factor for allogeneic blood transfusion. The scheduling of a preoperative visit with sufficient notice (at least 3 weeks before surgery), with a blood count test and a basic iron metabolism study, enables us to treat the anemia and/or improve preope...
Article
Postoperative anemia is a common finding in patients who undergo major surgery, and it can affect early rehabilitation and the return to daily activities. Allogeneic blood transfusion is still the most widely used method for restoring hemoglobin levels rapidly and effectively. However, the potential risks of transfusions have led to the review of t...

This randomized, controlled study evaluated the efficacy of i.v. ferric carboxymaltose (FCM) as postoperative anaemia treatment after total knee arthroplasty (TKA). /st>TKA patients with postoperative anaemia [haemoglobin (Hb) 8.5-12.0 g dl(-1)] without prior trans...
Article
Since allogeneic blood transfusion (ABT) is not harmless, multiple alternatives to ABT (AABT) have emerged, though there is great variability in their indications and appropriate use. This variability results from the interaction of a number of factors, including the specialty of the physician, knowledge and preferences, the degree of anemia, trans...
Article
One of the main factors that contributes to the need for transfusion in the surgical patient is excessive blood loss. Pillar 2 of patient blood management (PBM) includes all the strategies to reduce bleeding and preserve the patient's own blood, designed with an aim to reducing or avoiding transfusion. Some of these strategies, such as identifying...

Article
SUMMARY Preoperative anemia is an independent risk factor for allogeneic blood transfusion in surgical procedures associated with moderate-to-high perioperative blood loss. Allogeneic blood transfusion and preoperative anemia have been independently associated with worse postoperative outcomes in patients undergoing major surgery. In addition, hema...

There are risks related to blood incompatibility and blood-borne diseases when using allogeneic blood transfusion. Several alternatives exist today, one of which, used for autologous blood salvage perioperatively, is the Sangvia Blood Management System. This study was designed to investigate the efficacy of the system and to add data to previously...
Article
Preoperative anemia is highly prevalent in major surgery. The haemoglobin (Hb) level is the main independent risk factor for allogeneic blood transfusion (ABT) in surgeries with moderate to high risk of bleeding. Transfusion and preoperative anemia have been associated with worse postoperative outcome and higher mortality in patients undergoing maj...

The donor did not receive heparin; this fortuitously avoided new exposure of the patient to heparin. In conclusion, HIT is a serious complication of heparin treatment in the context of OLT, which can lead to thrombo-tic complications such as acute Budd –Chiari syndrome needing emergent retransplantation. Early recognition and use of an alternative...

Postpartum hemorrhage may lead to maternal morbidity and mortality, increases risks of transfusion, and incurs costs. We report on the feasibility and efficacy of in-hospital intravenous (IV) iron for treating postoperative anemia at Mtengo wa Nthenga, Malawi. Twenty-eight consecutive women undergoing surgery for complicated pregnancy or complicate...

Previously undiagnosed anaemia is common in elective orthopaedic surgical patients and is associated with increased likelihood of blood transfusion and increased perioperative morbidity and mortality. A standardized approach for the detection, evaluation, and management of anaemia in this setting has been identified as an unmet medical need. A mult...
