OBJECTIVE: To investigate the factors influencing platelet transfusion results so as to improve the platelet transfusion efficiency. METHODS: According to the clinical symptoms (bleeding condition is stopped or improved)and the corrected count of increment (CCI), the patients were divided into efficient transfusion and inefficient transfusion groups. A total of 20 671 patients' clinical data and main platelet transfusion parameters in 26 045 tranfusions including platelet count of per- and post- transfusion, platelet component sorts, storage time and transfusion number were analysed...

The article presents the description of clinical observation, in which spinal neurosurgical intervention was successfully made in a patient with ESRD, receiving chronic hemodialysis for 20 years. In this context, we discuss the various clinical and tactical aspects of the management of patients with this severe co-pathology: infusion-transfussion therapy, peculiarities of anesthetic management and intra-operation monitoring, diagnostics and correction of hemostasis disorders, hemodialysis organization.

Acute myeloid leukemia and acute lymphoblastic leukemia remain devastating diseases. Only approximately 40% of younger and 10% of older adults are long-term survivors. Although curing the leukemia is always the most formidable challenge, complications from the disease itself and its treatment are associated with significant morbidity and mortality. Such complications, discussed herein, include tumor lysis, hyperleukocytosis, cytarabine-induced cellebellar toxicity, acute promyelocytic leukemia differentiation syndrome, thrombohemorrhagic syndrome in acute promyelocytic leukemia, L-asparaginase-associated thrombosis, leukemic meningitis, neutropenic fever, neutropenic enterocolitis, and transfussion-associated GVHD...

Transmission routes and seroprevalence of hepatitis C virus (HCV) may vary between countries and geographic regions. In this study, we aimed to investigate the risk factors associated with the transmission of HCV in our region, Tokat (located at middle Black Sea region of Turkey). Ninety-seven patients (age range: 16- 78-years-old, mean age: 53.6 +/- 10 yrs; 15 male, 82 female) who were admitted to Infectious Diseases Clinics between September 2004 and February 2007 and found to be anti-HCV positive by microparticle enzyme immunoassay (Abbott, Axsym) were enrolled in this study...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: The high mortality attributable to severe malaria by Plasmodium falciparum is related to the grade of parasitemia. Automated erithrocytapheresis (AE) is a safe alternative to exchange transfussion, with the same potential benefits but less undesirable side effects. Literature on this technique is scarce, consisting of isolated reports or short series. The objective of this study is to describe the clinical picture and outcome observed in 6 severely ill malaria patients in whom EA was applied as complimentary therapeutic technique...

BACKGROUND: Although millions of lives are saved by blood transfusion, unsafe transfusion is also putting millions of people at risk of Transfusion Transmissible Infections (TTI). In Ethiopia the safety and magnitude of blood transfusion and TTIs is not well investigated OBJECTIVE: to investigate the magnitude of TTIs and assess TTI related risk factors among blood donors. METHODS: Cross-sectional study among blood donors at the Red Cross Society Blood Bank in Gondar University Hospital, North West Ethiopia...

CONTEXT: Patients with sickle cell anemia (SCA) are frequently transfused with red blood cells (RBC). Recently we reported that the calculated risk of RBC alloimmunization per transfussed unit in Brazilian patients with SCA is 1.15%. We describe a delayed hemolytic transfusion reaction (DHTR) presenting as a painful crisis in a patient with SCA. CASE REPORT: A 35-year-old Brazilian female with homozygous SCA was admitted for a program of partial exchange transfusion prior to cholecystectomy...
