Abstract

Background: Acute normovolemic hemodilution combined with retransfusion is one of the various techniques proposed to avoid homologous blood transfusion in cardiac surgery. The purpose of the present paper is to study the effect of the volume of autologous blood collected pre-cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) on homologous blood requirements and total estimated red blood cell (RBC) volume lost in coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) surgery.
