Abstract

Deplasmatized blood transfusion is one of the most frequent and variable interventions during cardiac surgery. It might be beneficial, although it may also cause adverse results. Most recent studies have associated them with an increase in morbimortality. We conducted a study that analysed the association of deplasmatized blood transfusion with the application of a protocol for care to optimize transfusional therapy in the perioperative stages of cardiac surgery. A decrease in blood transfusion in the perioperative stage with no impact in mortality or days of hospitalization was observed upon the application of this protocol.
