Abstract

Objective: To assess the impact of pre-donated autologous blood and intra-operative isovolaemic haemodilution on the outcome of transfusions in patients undergoing radical retropubic prostatectomy. Patients and methods: The charts and transfusion records of 192 consecutive patients undergoing radical retropubic prostatectomy were reviewed retrospectively. Results: Of 192 patients, 14% required homologous transfusions, the rate of which varied significantly depending upon blood availability (autologous, haemodilution or homologous) (P<0.001); 66% of patients with only autologous blood available were transfused a mean of 1.96 units (range 1-6) of blood, of which 87% received autologous alone, 12% both autologous and homologous and 1% homologous blood only. Of the pre-donated autologous units, 44% were wasted. Conclusions: Both the pre-donation of autologous blood and intra-operative isovolaemic haemodilution lower the risk of homologous blood transfusion. It is recommended that patients pre-donate 2 units of autologous blood and undergo intra-operative isovolaemic haemodilution before radical prostatectomy.
