Autologous blood transfusion (ABT) is a safe and useful procedure in patients undergoing elective surgery, but it has not been recommended for radical hysterectomy with pelvic lymphadenectomy. We retrospectively evaluated the results of an ABT programme in 146 consecutive women undergoing radical hysterectomy and pelvic lymphadenectomy for cervical carcinoma at our institution. Forty women underwent autologous blood transfusion after predeposit; 23 underwent preoperative normovolemic haemodilution; 38 were eligible but could not receive autologous blood transfusion for logistic reasons; 45 were excluded for medical reasons. 126 units of blood were collected, of which 100 (80%) were reinfused. The donation procedure was well-tolerated and no transfusion reaction was observed. Homologous blood transfusion was needed in 13% of patients receiving predeposit or haemodilution (8/63), in 42% of patients that were eligible but not receiving autologous blood transfusion (16/(38), and in 71% of non-eligible patients (32/45). The total number of units of homologous blood required for transfusion was lower in patients undergoing predeposit or haemodilution (14) than in those included in the observation arm (43). Autologous blood transfusion is a safe practice which greatly reduces the need for homologous blood transfusion, and radical hysterectomy with pelvic lymphadenectomy represents an adequate indication for this procedure, as the majority of deposited blood is actually reinfused.

Abstract

Autologous blood transfusion (ABT) is a safe and useful procedure in patients undergoing elective surgery, but it has not been recommended for radical hysterectomy with pelvic lymphadenectomy. We retrospectively evaluated the results of an ABT programme in 146 consecutive women undergoing radical hysterectomy and pelvic lymphadenectomy for cervical carcinoma at our institution. Forty women underwent autologous blood transfusion after predeposit; 23 underwent preoperative normovolemic haemodilution; 38 were eligible but could not receive autologous blood transfusion for logistic reasons; 45 were excluded for medical reasons. 126 units of blood were collected, of which 100 (80%) were reinfused. The donation procedure was well-tolerated and no transfusion reaction was observed. Homologous blood transfusion was needed in 13% of patients receiving predeposit or haemodilution (8/63), in 42% of patients that were eligible but not receiving autologous blood transfusion (16/(38), and in 71% of non-eligible patients (32/45). The total number of units of homologous blood required for transfusion was lower in patients undergoing predeposit or haemodilution (14) than in those included in the observation arm (43). Autologous blood transfusion is a safe practice which greatly reduces the need for homologous blood transfusion, and radical hysterectomy with pelvic lymphadenectomy represents an adequate indication for this procedure, as the majority of deposited blood is actually reinfused.
