INTRODUCTION: Sickle cell disease (SCD) is one of the leading causes of morbidity and mortality worldwide, causing damage and dysfunction in multiple organs. The complications of this disease are numerous, affect every organ and/or tissue in the body and vary considerably among patients over the time challenging its management. THE AIM OF OUR STUDY: To determine the iron status of 17 patients with non-transfusion-dependent sickle cell disease ( NT-SCD) patients and six patients with transfusion dependent sickle cell disease (TD- SCD) using both serum ferritin level (SF) and Ferriscan® evaluation of liver iron content (LIC)...

Bleeding occurs in approximately 10% of patients with cancer: supportive transfusion therapy with Platelets Concentrates (PC), Fresh Frozen Plasma (FFP) and plasma-derived or recombinant concentrates is often required for the cessation and prevention of the bleeding episodes. The most frequent causes of bleeding in cancer is thrombocytopenia followed by liver insufficiency with or without vitamin K deficiency, disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC) and the inappropriate or excessive use of anticoagulants...

Postoperative alveolar fistula (AF) associated with pleural cavity (PC) is a serious complication and a therapeutic challenge in thoracic surgery. The purpose of this study was to assess the efficacy of the use of the autologous platelet gel for the treatment of AF and PC. We treated a patient with post lung resection persistent alveolar fistula using a autologous platelet gel, a cellular compose produces at the Division of Immunohaematoligy and Trasfusion. The platelet gel-PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) is a biological material made of autologous platelets, extracted from a small amount of the patient's blood, centrifuged at 1100 g for 9 min...

The evolution of the surgery of the cancer of cervix has passed for several stages. First the boarding was indisputably vaginal. Thanks to the anestesea, antibioterapia and trasfusion was produced a change that has come to our days to the abdominal route with Wertheim Meigs's intervention. From 1987 Dargent he introduced the route laparoscopica, the conservative surgery and the return to the vaginal boarding. Today the robotic surgery is imposed with the Da Vinci.

In several countries where there is a high prevalence of HBV the risk of PTH has been investigated. One study demonstrated that HBV immunity provided protection against infection following transfusion of HBs Ag-postive blood in that a higher proportion of immune recipients failed to develop, or developed only transitory, HBs antigenemia, Forty (61 per cent) of 66 recipients who received HBs Ag positive (IAHA) units developed hepatitis, which was subclinical in 37 (93 per cent) of the 40. Six recipients of HBs Ag-containing units had HBs Ag in the pre-transfusion serum...

This analysis involves 93 cases of transplants of non-related cadaver kidneys. The result was better (p = 0.02 at 1 year) in recipients transfused before the graft (73 cases) than in those who had not been trasfused (20 cases). However, this latter group had a shorter average period of haemodialysis (p = 0.05 than the first. The benefits of pre-immunisation appear from 1 to 2 transfusions or 1 pregnancy onwards (p = 0.02 at 1 year). Subjects transfused during the 6 months prior to the transplant had a graft which was functional more often than those who had been more than 6 months before the operation (p = 0...

On a three years' period, 122 patients with AL (45 children, 76 adults) received 158 treatments of induction, involving a severe medullary aplasia. In 48 cases (30.4%) none infectious complication was recorded. In the other 110 observations, infections syndrome (septicemia due to gram-negative rods above all) was treated by an early and intensive combination antibiotherapy (three successive protocols are employed, after failure of the precedent), in association with a careful medical reanimation and trasfusions of granulocytes in 16 cases...
