بررسی ریسک فاکتورهای نیاز به انتقال خون در بیماران تحت جراحی قلب

One of the most important components of coronary artery bypass graft surgery is need for blood transfusion that increases morbidity and mortality. The aim of this study was to evaluate the factors affecting the need for blood transfusion during off pump coronary artery bypass (OPCAB) surgery. In this study preoperative hematocrit was most important risk factor in transfusion in patients that underwent OPCAB. Female gender, preoperative low hematocrit, multiple grafts, diabetes and hypertension increased the rate of blood transfusion. According to the high prevalence of blood transfusion in OPCAB, considering factors that affect the transfusion rate is essential.
